The new French oak naturally lends the tequila a subtle and silky sweet flavor that can be describe as light caramel, toffee, and rich butterscotch. To not overpower the tequila with too much oak flavor, we use a mild toast as to compliment the sweetness of the tequila. Additionally, French oak barrels have a looser grain, leaving behind a silky, rather then course creamy finish. This allows the tequila to rest gently on the tongue, achieving an overall more enjoyable experience.
"El Platino" blanco tequila, which is our
clear none-aged tequila that we rest in our
new French oak casks to create the Gran Reserva
and Vintage 11 year
, is complimented perfectly due to its natural sweet and citric agave notes. The outcome is an unparalleled smooth and rich experience that is often compared to Remy Martin Loui XIII and other fine armagnac/cognacs.
Both of these extra anejos have received the highest awards possible, winning double golds for back to back years in the World Spirits Competition in San Francisco Calfornia.
