Siembra Azul Anejo Tequila
A commanding, mature spirit, the Añejo is rested for about 18 months in white oak "medium toast" barrels that come from the Ozarks in Missouri. The spirit begins with a subtle nose with a hint of bitterness. After opening up, the nose can detect oak with notes of vanilla. This is an elegant and robust spirit beginning with sweet citrus and giving way to Oak palate. Siembra Azul Anejo features a subtle yet complex flavor profile with notes of cinnamon, tobacco, raspberries, black olives, vanilla, coconut and butterscotch. Aging of this highland tequila brings out caramels and honey. Still the distinct floral and herbal overtones remain making this anejo brighter than comparable tequilas. This finishes with an earthy and peppery aftertaste. The spirit offers a prolonged finish, and is best enjoyed neat in a Glencairn glass or large snifter.
