Six Years Extra Añejo
The Reserva de Don Adolfo Extra Añejo is aged for 6 years in oak barrels. Our newest product, this is a new classification of tequila.
This sipping tequila is described as a "cognac-like" spirit.
It has a beautiful rich gold color with a thick body. The aromas are dominated by cinnamon, herbs, and spices. Very robust on the palate, it has a bold and vibrant complexity. A long sweet, spicy, exotic fruit finish is best savored slowly.
This is my first exploration into the Alquimia distillery. I had heard good things re the organic and the care, etc.
I ended up with the top end first. My initial experience is that this is a good tequila - easy to drink - VERY clean...
HOWEVER, it greatly suffers by being so watered down. Frankly, from a scotch drink used to cask strength (I will do my own watering down, thank-you very much...:-) ), the negative impact of too much water was really clear.
I would love to see an expression this - or even perhaps a bit younger if they are using new wood - at cask strength.... It would be worth the extra $20 - 30 for sure.
I look forward to updating my review as this opens up.
BTW - this is still a very good tequila - and probably worth 4 stars - BUT I wanted consumers to be aware - and, ultimately, perhaps persuade Alquimia for either Cask Strength - OR at least something in the 48 - 50 ABV level to strengthen the quality of the taste profile.
BTW - it is still $100 - so not cheap...
terrific tequila for sipping. good price, good service
This is always good
Absolutely fantasticly fantastic. This is smooth with just a hint of a burn. But what a nice warm burn it is. I highly recommend this to anyone that loves Tequila
Nothing special about this bottle. Spend your $100 elsewhere.
Fabulous sipping tequila...my favorite
Excellent tequila & good price and service.
Im located in the Washington DC area. I’m ordering from California. It’s the only tequila I prefer. Need I say more.
Exceptional taste and price. I live in DC and order my tequilas from Cali. In particular from Old Town Liquor. That says it all. I give it five stars.
