They say X marks the treasure spot; in this case that X is for tequila fans. Extra añejo takes longer to age than other tequilas but Espolòn Añejo X Tequila takes it to another level by not just two or three years but by secretly laying their tequila to rest for six long years in uncharred virgin oak, which gives it an extra level of flavor and complexity. This is the latest creation of Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza, which is made from 100% Weber Blue Agave, bottled at 82 proof in a handmade jet black matte glass bottle paying tribute to the Mexican celebration known as “The Day of The Dead” – a cool take on the standard Espolòn bottle.
The extra aging process helps develop a rich, golden color, velvety texture and a complex flavor of uncommon character. It holds an oak and brandy aroma with a similar palate combined with notes of dried fruit and cinnamon and a very smooth, clean and lingering finish. Being the only Añejo X, it is available in a very limited quantity and once it’s gone, it’s gone forever so put down your treasure map and order now for something extra rare and extra mysterious.
