Tequila 1921 Reserva Especial 100% Agave Single Barrel Reposado. NOM 1079 Lote # 198. Tasted 9/30/08 in a Riedel glass. I ordered this from Total Beverage and paid 45.00/750ml. A slightly dull golden yellow color. First nose is brandy, wood, sweet butter, and a cherry fruit essence. An amazing nose full on agave and mild on alcohol. A medium to heavy oily body with long slow legs. Intial taste is bold and intense, not too sweet with the right amount of heat and a sustained finish. It goes down extra smooth with no bitterness in the aftertaste leaving a very pleasant agave taste on the tongue. The alcohol is balanced and complements the overall taste and nose. Presentation involves one of the more unusual bottles and a clay label. The wax and cork are a bit tricky but otherwise very nice. This tequila well deserves the label Especial. I definitely agree with the many accolades this tequila has received as it is one of my favorites when I'm in the mood for something other than a blanco.
