Hussong's Platinum Añejo Tequila
Hussong's // Mexico
Hussong's Platinum Añejo Tequila is made of 100% blue weber agave and twice distilled in stainless steel stills. It is aged in bourbon barrels for 15 months and filtered to a crystal clear appearance. It is hand-bottled in clay jugs and cork-sealed to reflect the spirit of the Baja California Peninsula. Produced at NOM 1489 Destileria Leyros, S.A. de C.V., it is bottled at 40% ABV.
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".

"This añejo tequila pours a crystal clear color as a result of its filtration, although on nosing the spirit there are very few of the category’s telltale aromas of vanilla and spice. Rather, the tequila smells of mint, jalapeño, and a bit of wood pulp — not unpleasant but certainly not typical. The palate seems a bit thin and lacks both oak and agave flavors. The finish has a light spice but is ultimately a bit dilute. This spirit has cool packaging and is perhaps a great memento from the eponymous bar but not much more than that."
