El Tesoro translates to "the treasure." Created by Don Felipe Camarena and Alain Royer of A. de Fussigny cognac brand, El Tesoro Paradiso is an extra añejo tequila. It is made from 100% blue weber agave cooked in a brick oven and double-distilled in a copper pot-still. Aged for five years in former cognac barrels. It is bottled at 40% ABV.
Tequila Extra AñejoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least 3 years in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, although ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Extra Añejo tequilas are also known as "ultra aged".
"There is a mixture of barrel spices, raw peppers, and vanilla cream. The body fairly full and plush. The tequila really makes the biggest impact on the finish which is long lasting. This is where the cognac flavors come through there. It is a lovely combination of the two genres as the herbal, cooked agave notes are still present. A great after-dinner treat."
