After a long wait, our own barrel of top-shelf Codigo 1530 Resposado. I’m very excited to release this one and those of you who know me know that I don’t get excited very often. This one is different. This barrel was aged 6 months in a medium char barrel previously used for top quality Napa Cabernet. 90 proof, the nose has that wonderful cooked agave smell with honey suckle and vanilla. On the attack, fresh citrus, black pepper and roasted pineapple. I’m not sure if this one can go into Margaritas. Maybe if you get more than one bottle. What a treat.
El Tesoro is one of the oldest family run Tequila distilleries still around. Most of the big houses are using a mechanical press now instead of the “Tahona” stone (A huge volcanic stone that is turned by mules). Usually this method is only reserved for the most expensive tequilas. To find one under $60 is pretty rare. This is my second of two barrels. The first one sold out in a few days. I tasted these side by side and think this one might have the edge of the two. All those lucky enough to score the first barrel, I’d love to hear if you agree. Don’t wait too long on this one with Cinco de Mayo around the corner!
