"It’s a pleasure to smell agave in this pale extra anejo. Silken and delicate in the mouth, sea salt and lime zest are to the fore, supported with white pepper and suggestions of cigar box and baking spice." 95 Points 2021 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

This is a great sipping tequila. It’s no coincidence “El Tesoro” means “The Treasure.”
"Our Extra Añejo honors Carlos Camarena’s father Felipe J. and their shared passion for aging tequila. This special tequila blend is slowly aged in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for four to five years, which add rich flavors of chocolate and coffee."
The La Altena distillery was built in the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico in 1937. The unique atmospheric conditions at its high altitude gave the agave plants a higher sugar level that was ideal for making his 100% blue agave tequila. Today, Carlos Camarena—grandson of the founder, Don Felipe—supervises the harvesting of the mature agave and oversees the production of El Tesoro de Don Felipe to ensure consistency and quality.
