Cava Antigua Anejo Tequila

Cava Antigua Anejo Tequila - Our tequila is made from one hundred percent of Blue Agave Weber Tequilana. The excellence of our product begins with the thorough selection of agave with ripening time between eight and ten years. Before its preparation, the base of agave is removed in order to avoid the formation of unwanted alcohols and afterwards it is placed for some period of time into the specially designed ovens. After the fermentation process, the must (juices and syrups of agave) goes through double distillation in stills specially designed to obtain a maximum purity of the product. It follows by the rectification and filtration before it is being deposited into the new exclusive French barrels, made from the combination of special fine woods, where tequila will rest for a minimum of twelve months, going through a number of different stages to form a special blend of color and aroma.

Tequila Cava Antigua is bottled into the exclusive handmade bottles - each of them being an outstanding piece of art, requiring twenty steps of manual work in order to be produced.

Cava Antiqua Anejo. NOM 1431. Tasted 2ozs. from a Reidel at my home tequila bar on 3/8/09.
Color: Light Amber
Initial Taste: Initial mouthfeel has a light alcohol bite concentrated in the front of the mouth slowly growing sweeter and more complex.
Body: Light pleasant oily feel with very long slow moving legs running down the sides of the Reidel.
Finish/Smoothness: Smooth sweet agave with traces of cinammon and vanilla overtones that displays serious complexity and a long pleasant oak aftertaste.
Price: I have only been able to find this anejo during my many visits to Cozumel. I usually pay between $30-$35 per 750ml. bottle. I believe that it can be found in the US for between $55-$65.
Presentation: Beautiful handcrafted dark brown "jug" type bottle with leather labels and rawhide drawstring. Rustic wooden cap and natural cork stopper.
Note: This anejo has always been a personal favorite of mine. It has many of the similarities of a Don Julio Anejo but with much more complexity in both pure agave flavor and the aging process. It will always remain on my top shelf for not only it's taste but also how nicely the rustic bottle displays at my tequila bar.
