Tequila Cuestión Añejo

Cuestión Tequila Anéjo is one of the finest aged spirits the world has ever known. Each batch requires nearly 12 years to produce, beginning with a decade of sun, sand and the meticulous care of our legendary Blue Weber Agave plants in the fields of Jalisco, Mexico. Once pressed, fermented and distilled, the raw spirit is aged for 18 months in fire-cured American Oak whiskey barrels imported from Lynchburg, Tennessee. The result is a decadent blend of dark chocolate and caramel flavors, citrus, clove and rich oak aromas that will force you to Cuestion everything you know about top-shelf tequila. Cuestión Tequila Anéjo should always be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or with a splash of mineral water.

Founded in 2007 by Jose de Jesus Dominguez Figueroa and his partner Jose de Julio Marquez Ochoa. President / CEO of Cuestion Spirits Company, Inc., Jason Fandrich partnered with Jesus and Julio in 2009 to begin the import process and is the exclusive importer / distributor of Cuestion Tequila.

Colour is very light amber, more like a repo, which hints at things to come. Initial smell is perfumy and floral, but opens up into fruit, agave, soft wood and light alcohol. Nose is unobtrusive and welcoming. Taste is dates, maybe a few figs, agave, very light wood, some honey on the entry, some clove at the rear. Very balanced. Certainly not a big-spice anejo, but some lovely tingle on the tongue and some easy heat at the top of the throat. A light to medium finish with a gentle creeper of an after-finish that keeps going with soft cooked agave sweetnesses and mild spice. Every single thing about this anejo is understated and nuanced, with few overbearing age elements to interfere with its mellow agave profile. It's really hard not to love this wonderful tequila for what it is: a nice light touch with plenty of quiet agave character. Eminently drinkable and enjoyable. Superb.
