Tequila Casta Pasion Anejo - Worm Bottle

The hand-blown worm bottle may strike some as little more than a conversation piece, but to tequila enthusiasts, the spirit inside is something of a find. Casta Pasion Anejo is an elegant 100-percent agave tequila.

The bottle is crafted in Mexico, requiring 8 workers 15 minutes to fabricate a single, worm-shaped bottle. Each is hand-numbered and signed. Where the worm gets its 2 front legs has not been determined.

The Casta Worm Anejo is aged over year in new white oak casks. The fresh barrels imbue the tequila with a pronounced woody, oaky character, as well as a palate rich with the flavors of sweet spice, citrus fruit and ground black pepper.

I have this bottle forever and I'm not at all ashamed to admit that I bought it for the bottle. The bottle is maybe my favorite that I have and is a mainstay on top of my bar. Ultimately, I hope that the juice inside is going to be good, but I'll never regret buying a bottle this cool.

Aroma: Cooked agave, citrus fruit, light spice and a touch of oak.
Initial Taste: Peppery agave with bold citrus notes and light vanilla. A very interesting and tasty entry.
Body: Medium & slightly oily body. The main flavors are light agave and a bold black pepper. Very spicy. Light oak and vanilla sweetness round it out.
Finish: As you would expect with a tequila this full of pepper, it is definitely present on the finish and has a nice long linger. There's a slight bitterness on the finish from the wood. All in all a very nice finish.

Too often a unique and fun bottle means a ho hum tequila. This tequila is not in that category. Not only is it delicious, but it is also really unique in the anejo category. It's not overly sweet and it has a lot of the spicy notes of a blanco. It's well balanced and delicious. I'd recommend it just for the bottle, but the juice inside is definitely worth a look too.
