Blue Nectar Añejo Founder's Blend Tequila
Blue Nectar // Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
The deep gold spirit is double-distilled in stainless pot stills with copper coils. It is aged two years in charred American oak, and is blended with an unspecified amount of extra-añejo--including a "limited production five year-old añejo."
Tequila AñejoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least a year in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, but ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Añejo tequilas are also known as "aged" or "extra aged".
Cask TypeCharred American oak
"Agave dominates a nose additionally ornamented with traces of wood, white pepper and caramel. The palate exhibits a steel-fist-in-a-velvet-glove kind of perfumy sharpness. There's some wood by way of a little vanilla, and caramel reappears on the dry, spicy finish."
