El Mayor‘s newest particular version Additional Anejo has arrived. Just like the final expression, it makes use of a wine cask to do the whole lot of its ageing course of, solely this one is aged in Port barrels as an alternative of sherry. Complete ageing in Port casks for this launch is a whopping 42 months.
Let’s dive in to a different rarity from this often-stellar producer.
Like El Mayor’s sherry-aged XA expression, this tequila leads not with sweetness and fruit however with peppery agave, inexperienced and slightly leathery, with some floral components — extra dried than recent — in attendance. A bit toasty with mild oak notes because it develops, with winey fruit notes rising on the nostril with a little bit of time. That stated, these components by no means dominate. The palate does a very good job of mixing components of agave-forwardness with extra unique overtones. Melting chocolate, raisin, and loads of sultry vanilla showcase a modest Port-driven character, with a pinch of crimson pepper and a few cinnamon spicing issues up. Port and well-aged tequila become strong bedfellows, although by some means I hoped for extra. After 3 1/2 years in Port casks, I used to be anticipating a juicier, fruit-laden expertise, however nonetheless this bottling doesn’t disappoint regardless of its extra savory, reserved composition. So long as you’re not searching for a Port bomb, followers of well-aged tequila shouldn’t be disillusioned.
