Crótalo Tequila Extra Añejo Reserva

Crótalo Extra Añejo Reserva Tequila is double barrel aged a total of 5 years using our proprietary aging process. Crotalo Extra Añejo Reserva has a limited production of 1500 bottles per year and is perfectly suited to be sipped from a snifter like a fine cognac.

Crótalo Tequila is a traditionally crafted, limited production premium tequila. One hundred percent blue agave is hand selected and harvested with a coa by our jimadors, ensuring that only the finest pínas are used to produce Crótalo Tequila. It is our attention to tradition and detail that provides Crótalo Tequila with character, taste and quality that are unmatched. We showcase Crótalo Tequila in artisan glass blown bottles with labels that are applied by hand.

This brand seems to get better with barrel time. A decent base juice, but the aging does wonders for it.

The nose if full of fruit and spice, but charcoal starts to intrude a little. The taste is very sweet, with baking spices, but not a lot of agave flavor, although very tasty. The body is actually thin for an extra anejo, and it takes on a dry element from the oak. Finish is very pleasant with lingering layers of fruit and spice.

This was a very enjoyable drinking experience, and a well-done job of aging. The price is probably a little steep; it should be priced closer to a very good anejo - maybe around $100. As with the entire line, a nice bottle presentation that is unique.

This tequila is everything that it was billed to be. As the winner of many competitions as best in show, my expectations were high and they were met and exceeded.

Aroma: Nose of Caramel, Agave, Oak and Spice.
Initial Taste: Sweet Caramel and light ripe fruits.
Body: Thick/rich body that coats the mouth with spices. You can really taste the complexity that came from aging in double barrels, but it's a nice balance of sweetness, fruit, chocolate and wood.
Finish: So smooth. No burn at all. It finishes like silk. No burn, but a nice agave spice that is still there when most 5 year aged tequila lose that property.

This may be my new favorite tequila. It's really THAT good.
