Tequila Ocho Extra Anejo 8/8/8
8/8/8 is the commemorative release of the original agave field harvested for the first US release of Single Estate Tequila Ocho. This is one of a selected few barrels held by Carlos and aged for 8 years, 8 months. Only 1000 bottles produced for the US.
Nose: Treacle, gingerbread, caramel, ripe apricot, honey and mellow agave provide sweetness, while burnt orange and lemon peel add citric accents. Bright floral notes punctuate the nose in the form of orange blossoms and jasmine. Cedar, graphite, black tea and brown butter add to this already complex bouquet.
Taste: The full-flavored palate is a rich and complex coalescence of burnt orange zest, honey, ginger, nutmeg, brazil nut, coconut, green banana, hazelnuts, caramelized pineapple and peppermint. The mouthfeel is unctuous, creamy and silky smooth in texture. Black pepper, aniseed, and a pleasant herbaciousness create a long finish.
