Made by the famous Camareno Family and Tomas Estes, this tequila has gained world recognition amongst tequila lovers and bartenders alike. To qualify as an añejo, a tequila must be aged for a minimum of one year in oak barrels. What does this do to the tequila? Firstly, it adds colour, with the spirit sporting a lovely golden straw hue, and secondly, it also softens the agave flavour. The ageing process also imparts some flavours of the oak cask to the spirit. Like all of Ocho's other bottlings, the Añejo is made with agave harvested from different parcels of land each year, so there will be variations from batch to bacth and year to year. This particular expression still has a lot of bright fresh agave notes with hints of vanilla undercurrents, and touches of spice from the oak aging. Great to be sipped neat after dinner.
