About the brand:
Named in honor of the people of Tequila, El Tequileño was founded in 1959 by Don Jorge Salles Cuervo with a vision to create only the finest tequila. Sixty years later, El Tequileño is made in the same place using the same recipe by the grandson of Don Jorge. Learn more about El Tequileño here.
Why Reposado Rare?
By law, Reposados are required to be aged in barrels smaller than 600L and aged less than one year. El Tequileño breaks the rules with this Rare Reposado, instead aging it for 6 years in a very large American Oak pipon, resulting in an amazingly complex and rich Tequila with exceptional depth.
Why we love this Tequila:
Aroma: cinnamon, baked apple, caramel, hints of cedar and jalapeño
Palate: agave, piloncillo, candied ginger, meyer lemon, very light oak
Finish: very smooth, develops slowly
