Qui Platinum Extra Añejo Tequila
Tequila Extra Añejo
Qui // Jalisco, Mexico
Qui Tequila is touted as the world’s first platinum extra añejo tequila. Master distiller Miguel Cedeno oversees the double distillation before the tequila is aged in used bourbon and Bordeaux casks for 3.5 years. After earning its extra añejo designation, Qui undergoes a proprietary process that includes being filtered nine times and a third distillation, which results in its clear color.
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".

"If it’s true that we “taste with our eyes,” your palate will be in for a surprise with the crystal-clear Qui Tequila. On the nose, there’s plenty of agave, caramel and vanilla, with hints of grass. The smooth palate has notes of butterscotch, honey, oak and hints of smoke and a subtle vegetal character. The medium finish offers coffee, vanilla and a touch of oak."
