48.8% ABV, 750 ml, Single Estate 2008 Rancho el Carrizal
Aged 8 Years 8 Months, Vintage 2008
El Carrizal is 1978m above sea level with the typical red soil earth of the Los Altos highlands. Warm days and cooler nights give the agave both a sweetness and an acidity. When balanced, these two elements create a harmonious drinking experience as with wine.
Color – Pale and bright for an extra Añejo due to the face that the barrels have had 6-7 earlier fillings.
Aroma – Salt caramel, acetone, mint, floral hints, cedar, cooked turnips, molasses, olive brine, opens to sharp perfumed candied fruits, seaweed, celery.
Palate – Thick, rich mouth feel, butter, butterscotch, dry and lively fruit, cacao, cooked mint, coffee, mellow French oak finish, opens up after 5 minutes to a wide strata of flavors, hints of cognac.
