Tequila Pepe Zevada Anejo

Pepe Zevada Anejo Tequila - The rich golden color and complex aromas are the result of a slow aging for 19 months in white oak barrels.  A delicate vanilla and butterscotch aroma lead to a full flavor of ripened agave, earthy spice and a complex smooth lingering finish.

Jose “Pepe” Zevada embodies the word tradition.  Born of European parentage, Pepe was raised by the values that your “word and a handshake” meant a promise would be kept.  He was taught that the dinner table was sacred because that is where families came together to celebrate life’s events.  Pepe has been in the liquor business for over 30 years, and as a tequila expert, his name on the bottle represents his personal commitment that this product contains all the characteristics an excellent tequila should possess. 

Through the combination of tradition and high technology, this has placed Pepe Zevada among the leading distillers in Mexico.  Pepe Zevada “Z” Tequila is produced with extensive care to detail, from the selection of 7 to 9 year old agave plants, the careful choice of cultivated yeasts through the unique short column distillation process, managed by a staff with over 30 years distillation experience.  Finally, the spirit is aged in Canadian white oak barrels, which gives it hues of amber and gold.  A single sip reveals the smooth uncompromising taste.

Pepe Zevada “Z” Tequila is produced from 100% natural ingredients, with no additives to modify or change its exceptional quality or authentic taste.  This is insured through using dimineralized water so the minerals do not contaminate the spirit.

Aroma: A nice vanilla filled nose with hints of oak.
Initial Taste: Agave, vanilla and spice.
Body: A nice medium body. The agave, oak and pepper mix well with the sweetness from the vanilla.
Finish: A strong earth spice finish for an anejo. Lot of oak and a bit of anise on the finish with a medium length linger.

This is a well rounded anejo. Anise isn't my favorite, but this one pulls it off nicely. The bottle is very basic, but fits it well. Not bad at all for around $30.
