Aged: No age statement
Product of: Mexico
Many credit Herradura for kick starting the 'añejo' category when this product was launched in 1962. This 100% agave tequila is aged 24-25 months in ex-American whiskey casks, double the mandatory one-year period set for añejo tequilas.
Review and Tasting
Sampled before 1st May 2011
A nose of stewed vegetables, sweet banana, oiled leather, vanilla, caramel with oaky, nutty notes, olives in brine and subtle fruit maraschino cherry.
Perfectly balanced palate. Vanilla rich oak, caramel, cinnamon spice, banana cake and dried fruit.
Generously spiced finish retains fruity, vanilla notes with the merest dusting of freshly ground black pepper.
