The 8 best and newest Tequilas to try
PATRÓN CASK COLLECTION SHERRY AÑEJO
The Cask collection has been aged for more than two years exclusively in sherry barrels in Oloroso. What these unique Spanish oak barrels add to the spirit are remarkable pecan notes for both tongue and nose. Expect additional notes of caramel, raisins, light vanilla and a hint of butter.
DON JULIO REPOSADO, DOUBLE CASK
Colsa, master distiller explains: “The single malt barrel is what gives it the final touch: this peaty finish, perhaps a little smoky. The result is beautiful, wonderful. “It is perfect for those who are obsessed with both whisky and tequila.
HERRADURA ULTRA CRISTALINO
Ultra is made from a blend of Añejo and Extra Añejo tequilas (up to 49 months), which is then enriched with a subtle stroke of agave nectar for extra sweetness.
PATRÓN X GUILLERMO DEL TORO BOX SET
Inside, you will find a large bottle that is actually two in one: a 750 ml bottle of extra añejo tequila topped with a second 100 ml orange liqueur crystal in the shape of a skull.
EL TESORO EDITION OF THE 80th ANNIVERSARY
The natural deep golden colour – never any caramel colouring is allowed in El Tesoro – is characterised by a unique olive finish, with more traditional notes of caramelised oak and smoke.
PATRÓN EXTRA AÑEJO
It is made only from the highest quality Weber 100% blue agave, steamed in brick kilns for three days, then crushed, fermented and distilled using the old “tahona” wheel method and more modern roller mills.
CASA NOBLE SELECCIÓN DEL FUNDADOR VOLUME II
It is triple distilled and then aged only in French oak barrels. It is then aged for eight months in a new French Taransaud white oak to develop its impeccably complex and elegant character: rich in notes of dried fruit, flowers and cinnamon.
VOLCÁN DE MI TIERRA BLANCO
The winner of the Gallardo family is Volcan De Mi Tierra. Named after the dominant volcano that hovers over the distillery, it is the first to use agave in both the lowlands and highlands.
