Not Eligible for Further DiscountThe tahona is a giant two-ton volcanic wheel dug from the local area and rolled in a circle to crush the roasted agave hearts. Almost all tequila these days is made using an industrial conveyor roller mill process. This is obviously more efficient and yields much more juice (which is bad for the quality). Like most things though, the old school version TASTES BETTER.
This particular barrel is one of the most complex tequilas I’ve ever tasted. A bit of bourbon barrel gives way to nuanced notes of citrus, black pepper, and a little tease of ginger. Words really don’t do this justice. I suggest you taste this side by side with any tequila in existence.
Of course, the tahona method of making tequila makes them substantially more expensive. Typically, you need to pay $100 or more for a good Tahona Anejo. Not for the Nicholas Barrel Reserve Roca Patron.
This is my favorite part of our barrel program: Nicholas Wines customers get to cherry pick the very best barrel (IMO) from the Roca line up but basically pay the price of Patron’s regular Anejo. TRUST ME, this is no regular Patron Anejo. Don’t believe me? Taste them side by side!!!!

I suggest you sip this neat or on the rocks but at this price, you could even use it to make cocktails.
