Tailwinds Rested Agave Spirit
Tailwinds Distillery // Illinois, USA
Tailwinds Rested Agave Spirit is produced in the USA and, therefore, cannot be called Tequila. Distilled from organically-grown Weber Blue Agave nectar sourced from the northern hills of Guadalajara, Mexico then shipped to the distillery in Plainfield, Illinois. After a slow fermentation of 12 days, it is distilled in small batches on a pot/column still. Tailwinds Rested is allowed to mature for a minimum of 14 months inside of American oak, former Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. Released and bottled one barrel at a time every 4 - 6 months.
Other AgaveSpirits that are distilled from any type of agave and produced anywhere in the world outside of designated regions in Mexico.
"Hot, intense nose of crème brûlée, vanilla, and cinnamon sticks; definite bourbon notes with hints of butterscotch pudding, coconut, and bubble gum. Weighty in the mouth with a rich sweetness but not oily; hot vanilla, cinnamon in the form of red hots and caramel, a definite heat throughout. Finishes long and hot with bourbon notes to the end. "
