Corralejo 1821 Extra Anejo 750ml
Corralejo 1821 Extra Anejo is named after the year Mexico's independence was finally won, thanks to the tireless efforts of great men. 100% Blue Weber agave tequila produced from double distillation in copper pot stills and aged for 36 months in oak barrels. Corralejo employs the 400-year-old Charentais method of distillation, the same method used by the French in distilling cognac. The agave is slow cooked in stone clay for 27 hours, then rested for 12 hours before going into the mill where it's double distilled in copper pot stills.
Amber tones with copper flashes and a full body that is the ruslut of a high-quality production process. Sweet notes of cooked agave accented by spicy tones of cinnamon, pepper, and clove. Also noteworthy are the smoky notes brought out by fine toasting where woody and herbal notes are combined with the fruity aromas of coffee, walnut, apple, and pineapple. A perfect smoked and woody flavor with notes of walnut, almond, vanilla, and cooked agave. Thse give way to an aftertaste that denotes fine citrus and herbal strands along with smooth floral, chocolate, and spicy notes including cinnamon and pepper. A 36-month aging regime yields a tequila with an impeccable, smooth, flavor.
