Since 1962, Herradura has been proud to offer this delicious aged tequila. Barrelling for two years in oak (twice as long as suggested by the category standards) gives it both a deep amber color and complex taste of cooked agave and dried fruit.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Wildly aromatic with notes of smoked, peppered meats, butterscotch, pine shoots, and peaches in cream. Light smoke swirls around stone fruits and black pepper on the palate, with a vanillin, semi-sweet and smoky finish. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Finalist) (Apr 2018)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The bouquet features wonderful aromas of caramel, cream, pastry dough and nutmeg with a background hint of honeyed peanuts. Entry is spicy and full-bodied; the midpalate displays a trace of vanillin that supports the more vibrant flavors of brine, salt, green vegetable and green pepper. Finishes clean, a touch smoky and delicately spiced. A classic añejo Tequila. Delicious.
