Espolon Nicholas Reserve Bourbon Barrel Aged Anejo Tequila (dos)

$39.50

Last year, Eddie Russell surprised me by sending my empty barrel of Russel’s Reserve bourbon to Espolon to age a very special tequila. Don’t tell Eddie, but the tequila sold out even quicker than the bourbon that was originally in the barrel. You know I love to “recycle” so I made sure that I asked Eddie to send this years barrel to Mexico too. All in the interest of the environment (of course!). This years barrel is every bit as good as last years…stay tuned for the Russel’s Reserve bourbon that I expect sometime this summer….

I had so many unforgettable experiences on my last trip to Kentucky but the one that stands out the most was getting to taste through the Wild Turkey rickhouses with Eddie. We had a great afternoon and I get the feeling that I might have even earned a click of respect from him after I passed all his “tasting tests.” He even let me take one of his prized “Russell’s Reserve” barrels from him for a Nicholas Wines offering. He asked me sign the barrel and then he signed it right after me. I had no idea why..

Apparently, Wild Turkey sells their used barrels to Espolon for their bourbon barrel aged tequila. You wanna guess where my barrel ended up?? It spent part of the winter in Jalisco, Mexico filled with tequila and will be here next week. What an awesome surprise! I planned on offering this special tequila sometime this summer so you can have it with fish taco’s. But, since it’s the time of year again for Tequila, here it is. Have at it.
