Aged eighteen months, Excellia™ Añejo delivers dessert wine aromas (ripe and sweet grapes, dried apricots and pears) with evolving notes of rancio, baked spices and herbs, leather and sandalwood. The palate is intense and round with a strong and tannic woodiness along with fresh spices, tingling pepper and sweet charcoal notes. The long finish is gradual and revelatory with balanced lingering tones of cocoa and orchard.
Excellia™ is a unique añejo tequila that spurns the easy, standard añejo-tequila road of vanilla-and-honey in favour of a great, challenging flavour profile that gives the añejo category what it has until now lacked: credibility as great, aged tequila, without concessions to sweetness.
"Excellia™ Añejo is truly a world class sipping tequila with deep and elegant spicy wood character."
