This excellent Tequila has been aged 12 months in white-oak barrels, during which time the spirit acquires delicate hints of vanilla and butterscotch in addition to the other flavors of ripened agave and warm earth. Characterized by its deep, golden color.
Created in the Highlands of Tequila known as Los Altos, El Espolon Añejo is handcrafted from piñas slow-roasted for 18 to 20 hours at the San Nicolas distillery. Rock music is played during the production process to “inspire” the agave. Aged for 10 months in new American oak and finished maturing in used Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels for two additional months. Try this in an Old Fashioned cocktail for a modern spin on a classic cocktail.
