The agave for this tequila was harvested in 1998 in Atotonilco. To compensate the low sugar content of that year's harvest, nearly all of the spirit was aged in American oak barrels; 3% of the spirit went into French oak. Three quarters of the American barrels were former bourbon casks, and the remaining quarter had been previously used for California red wine, along with one former Chardonnay cask. It is bottled at 43% ABV.

    Distilled 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".

Tasting Notes

"With a surprisingly pale color for a spirit that has spent so much time in barrel, the fifteen year expression of Fuenteseca Reserva offers an intriguing nose of agave and white pepper. It arrives on the palate with an assertive spiciness that mellows into lingering notes of caramel and vanilla. The strong influence of former bourbon casks on this tequila makes it one fans of American whiskey will eagerly seek out."
