Launched in November 2016 is Colección de la Casa Reserva 2016, an updated version of Casa Herradura's original and successful reposado release from 2012. Produced in Amatitán, Jalisco and double-distilled from 100% blue weber agave, it is also double-matured ---initially resting 11 months in medium-char American white oak casks, followed by an additional 2 months in port casks. These finishing casks were hand selected from Portugal and previously used in the aging of port from the Duoro Valley. It is bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"On the nose, Port is the rare, shy celebrity fronted by a crew of burly bodyguards: dried fruit, roasted agave and peppery spice. More confidence is gained at first sip, with pepper and spice emerging as the dominant personality. As our celeb ducks into a dark sedan to speed off, it's with a wave trailing re-emergent Port, along with chocolate-coated coffee bean"
