Elegante is arguably Partida’s most elevated providing, an additional anejo — and never a cristalino, mercifully — that spends 40 months in oak earlier than bottling.
Whereas many additional anejos are ultra-sweet desserts in a glass, Elegante manages to maintain agave clearly in its sights. The nostril is peppery and inexperienced, buttressed by coconut and caramel, however clearly targeted on its spicier components. An preliminary rush of sweetness — caramel and coconut once more, with some butterscotch within the midst — hits the tongue, earlier than that agave peppery character creeps again into the image. It’s milder on the tongue than within the nostril, which creates a curious dissonance, the end returning to spice however including a heavy vanilla character to the combo — nearly like a cream soda. A lot of forwards and backwards right here between candy and spicy/savory, which makes it laborious to pin down. That’s not a foul factor.
