Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Aromas are rich and earthy, with coffee and dark green vegetation. Silky and spicy, the flavors are complex in the mouth with dried fruit and flowers giving way to high toned coffee and dark roasted chocolate. Lingers long. (Mar 2015)
The world’s first cask-strength tequila. Aged for at least 36 months in American white oak barrels and bottled at 108 proof, this cask-strength Extra Anejo features a full-bodied taste packed with oak, toasted almond, light agave notes and a sweet vanilla finish.
|Launched to the world in 2009 by a serial entrepreneur and tequila aficionado - DeLeon defied the conventions of the category to establish a new level of luxury in tequila.
DeLeon Tequila is made from the finest 100% Highland Blue Weber agave sourced from the rich earth of the Los Altos region of Jalisco. Hand-selected at harvest for highest quality and peak ripeness, our plants yield the sweetest pinas, giving the tequila its abundant character and balance. Slow roasting of the agave in traditional brick and clay ovens, combined with slow fermentation, under the precise guidance of our master distiller contribute enriched depth and complexity to the agave’s natural sweetness, creating a remarkably nuanced character. DeLeon achieves this astonishing depth of flavor in just two distillations - allowing the tequila to retain the unique character acquired during the fermentation process.
With relentless attention to detail our master distiller artfully cuts the beginning and end of the distillation, allowing only the absolute best portion, or Corazon, to find its way into every bottle, creating a subtle taste profile with unrivaled smoothness. For the aged expressions, an unconventional process blends the art of tequila with the mastery of French winemaking through a unique combination of bold American oak barrels and fine French wine casks to impart a distinctive, balanced character.
