Tequila Orgullo Pueblo Viejo Añejo
Pueblo Viejo // Jalisco , Mexico
Casa San Matías is one of the oldest distilleries in Mexico, and this "extra aged añejo (though labeled as a standard añejo) from Pueblo Viejo Orgullo ("orgullo" = "pride" in Spanish) was created to commemorate 120 years of making tequila. The Los Altos Jalisco-grown agave is harvested at 7- 10 years. The spirit is aged in a combination of American and French oak barrels for 24 months.
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".
Cask Typeex-bourbon, French oak
"This is a fine dessert tequila with rich flavors that manage to compliment the inherent agave notes instead of smothering them in sweetness. Warm cinnamon, dulce de leche, vanilla and milk chocolate fold into surprisingly fresh and tart green apple and pear. More savory notes of stewed agave, chili pepper and roasted bell pepper appear toward the finish as in a good molé, cutting the richness and adding depth. "
