Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila
Maestro Dobel // Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
Named for its creator Juan-Domingo Beckmann Legoretta (Do-Be-L) a 6th generation leader of a brand of tequila you may have heard of, José Cuervo. The “Diamond” in the name refers to the crystal-clear liquid that results after a proprietary filtration that removes congeners and most "color" from the blend of reposado, añejo, and extra añejo tequilas. The agave used is sourced from a single estate in the lowlands of Jalisco.
Tequila ReposadoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged from 2 months up to a year in barrels no larger than 20,000 L. Any type of wood is acceptable, although ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Reposado translates to "rested".
"The aroma is roasted agave all the way, very sweet and cloying. Rich Turbinado syrup, notes of melon and caramelized pineapple were found on the palate which then leads to raisins and figs. The finish shows a bit of licorice but more on the sweet side like Good & Plenty candies."
