While expecting her first child, Sophie Decobecq, Calle 23's founder and distiller, was inspired to produce the first-ever tequila exclusively made using Criollo (pronounced 'knee-o-yu') blue agave. Criollo agave remain small and sweet, even when fully mature.
Sophie found this new tequila's personality was best expressed at exactly 49.3% alc./vol., hence the unusual bottling strength of this exceptional limited-edition tequila.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 20/09/2019

Appearance:

(sample bottle No. 3232) Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Superbly clean with herbaceous agave and minty zesty orange freshness.

Taste:

Earthy, slightly salty and herbaceous agave with minty and pine freshness. The generous alcohol strength contributes a peppery spice but is surprisingly mellow considering it just shy of 50% alc./vol..

Aftertaste:

A long lingering continuation of the palate which fades with minty black pepper freshness.

Overall:

We love Sophie (the distiller and owner of Calle 23) and her tequilas but this limited edition particularly shines due to the minty herbaceousness of the agave. Delicious.
