Rested a few weeks in grand cru sauternes wine casks and cognac barrels, Excellia™ Blanco is clear with a faint of gold shade. The nose reveals cloves, tobacco and toast/brioche notes. On the palate, Excellia™ Blanco is complex with a mix of spices, vanilla, fruits and leather aromas. The finish is long on the mid-palate and presents dried spices and faint jasmine notes.
Excellia™ Blanco is the best example yet of a well-made blanco Highland tequila that dares to use, expertly, the sort of delicate flavours usually only seen in an añejo or extra-añejo, without losing the classic focus and strength which makes blanco the favourite tequila category among many connoisseurs.
"Excellia™ Blanco is floral and vibrant with a superbly smooth texture and a very complex Agave character."
