This won every spirit competition we submitted to: Sip Awards, World Spirits Competition, Denver International Spirits Competition, Los Angeles International Spirits Competition, New York Spirits Competition, Tequila Mezcal Challenge.

“Wow, where do I start with this one. First, it’s fantastic. The color is as light as most reposados because it has been aged in 20+ year old used bourbon barrels for 3 1/2 years. But don’t let the color fool you. The aroma and flavor shows every bit of character that you want in an extra añejo, including agave. You’ll find a lot of gentle and natural vanilla and pitted fruits in the aroma and flavor, and a nice fruity flavor that lingers on the palate along with cooked agave. Only 1,000 bottles made, so this one is a rare find. Grab it if you can.”
