This single barrel is aged 10 months in ex-bourbon barrels. It is very typical of El Tesoro, meaning its crisp and herby with citrus and peppery notes. The aroma is of agave and the high mineral content in La Alteña’s spring water. The palate is by no means dominated by wood/oak, in fact it is very agave forward with a nice, viscous mouth feel. Very well-rounded tequila by Carlos.

I have tasted 5 of these single barrels including all 3 from KL Wines which are now OOS. Carlos and his daughter categorized around 40 barrels into 3 groups and KL picked a barrel from each category. Barrel 110 is soft with citrus and pepper, barrel 117 was more herbal while the last, barrel 158 had more minerals and a big agave punch to it. The differences are very much in evidence when tasted side x side x side. Other than the 3 KL barrels the rest were sent to various retailers around the country. The remaing barrels were blended together and bottled as the regular reposado and designated lot 001 with the new retail package.
