With Don Julio 70 Añejo Claro, Don Julio Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa is able to get the rich, complex flavors of a traditional añejo in a liquid that is filtered to become a clear spirit. It spends 18 months in reclaimed American oak before being filtered, giving the tequila its unique clarity. In order to return Tequila Don Julio to a clear silver color, the aged liquid is filtered using a special process where electronically magnetized particles are added to the aged liquid. The free radicals in the particles bond to the coloring. After a certain period of time passes, the particles containing the color molecules are filtered out, producing a clear Añejo tequila.
I was a little skeptical about the filtering process but it did remove the barrel flavors and left a smooth, drinkable Tequila with a flavor much like a Blanco. A pleasant surprise and I'll buy this again.
It has taken me years to get my wife to drink tequila with me, now this is her most favorite tequila. Locally, we'll search high and low when the bottle gets close to empty, what a great tasting filtered Anejo. The best price and the best customer service is right a your finger tips.
