This añejo tequila is differentiated from others in the Partida range by its rust coloured neck label and ‘spirit bird’ insignia. It is aged for eighteen months in French-Canadian oak barrels previously used to age Jack Daniel's whiskey.
Sampled on 05/04/2010
Slightly smoky, nutty nose with hints of maraschino cherry, ripe pear and oxidised, overripe pineapple.
Very smooth with slightly woody, vanilla, caramel and Brazil/walnut notes. The initial experience is more akin to a mellow cognac than tequila thanks to the rich vanillins from the oak but agave notes emerge and build through the palate.
Long, mellow, vanilla-ed finish. The pleasant subtle hints of tropical fruit last the distance.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
