Why We Use New French Oak Barrels

Holding true to our mission of creating the absolute highest class and quality tequila, our Gran Reserva Extra Anejo 5 year and Vintage 11 year Extra Anejo are unrivaled testaments. Using only new premium 100% French oak casks, we forged away from the industry standard of using old whisky barrels discarded by distilleries. 
.
Owner of AsomBroso Tequila, Ricardo Gamarra  declared
"I wanted to use barrels that still had love to give. Obviously used up old whisky barrels would never work with creating my Extra Anejos".
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.
Our "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. More notably is the rating received by the top authority for spirits, the prestigious Tasting Panel Magazine, awarding an unheard of 94 and 96 points, ranking the Gran Reserva and Vintage as some of the highest rated tequilas in the world.
