Expresiones del Corazón Old Rip Van Winkle Añejo Tequila
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year old bourbon is one of the most coveted and tough to find bourbons out there. Since the barrels can only be used once to age it, Corazón decided to buy up a bunch of them from the Buffalo Trace distillery in Kentucky to age its tequila, which is matured in them for 23 months for this release.
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".
"Of all the expressions released from Corazón's Antique Collection series, this one has the most balance between bourbon and agave character. The leathery must, oak and sweet vanilla found in this bourbon plays well with the mineral undertones and vegetal fruits of agave. Caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove bring it all together."
