Tequila Ocho Plata Tequila Single Estate La Cañada 2022
40% ABV, 750 ml
La Cañada (the creek) is just a few miles northeast of Los Alambiques Distillery in a land full of small flat rocks, often used for building fences. Its east border runs alongside a creek (thus the name) which carries water only during the rainy season, with cedar, ash, and oak trees at its sides. The agave reflects the land it's grown in, so the Tequila in turn reflects the agave it was distilled from. Thoroughly rewarding stuff.The agaves used for this release are from Jesus Maria. Six and a half years old and grown at 2,085 meters these were extremely ripe when harvested with sugar levels of 300g/kg or as it says on the label (30% de su peso). This is very fruity with citrus notes and heavy roast agave.
