This añejo Tequila was made with blue agave, using the Fabrica de Tequilas method of cooking the piña with steam in autoclaves for 10 hours. A special yeast is added to the agave juices prior to fermentation, before Rooster Rojo anejo is double pot distilled in stainless steel pot stills and aged in oak. Water filtered through Mexican silver is finally added to blend the product down to 38% ABV.
Nose: Vanilla fudge and coffee rise through well-roasted agave and fragrant tobacco. A little milk chocolate lingers below.
Palate: In a rich and creamy mouth feel comes mixed peels, honey-dipped apricot and dark chocolate. Earthy, toasty agave and a little wood spice are present throughout.
Finish: Waves of brown sugar arrive on the finish.
