Tequila Ocho Añejo "La Latilla" 2015
Tequila Ocho // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
The "La Latilla" rancho slopes gently to the east which provides full afternoon sun exposure. The agaves were harvested in late 2014 and early 2015 so it bares the 2015 vintage date. Aged 7 years at harvest, the agaves had average sugar content of 32%, higher than usual. The tequila was aged in worn, ex-American whiskey barrels for at least one year.
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".
