Proof66 Notes

1921 tequilas are made with highland grown agave roasted in brick ovens, then shredded and milled in modern conditions. The tequila is double distilled in copper column stills. It is then blended with purified water and oxygenated to improve the "smoothness" of the taste.

According to a note in the Chicago Examiner, 1921 is meant to be a reference to the Mexican Revolution--it ended roughly in 1920--and each bottle bears a portrait of a Mexican hero.

1921 Reserva Especial is aged specifically for 9 months White oak (qualifying it as a reposado tequila). It is recommended to be drunk in a cognac wine glass.

From the always informative website Tequila.net, the especial reserva is aged for a variable period of time--9 months to 14 months depending upon the barrel and whether it's been used before. It is generally considered a reposado but could technically be a anejo depending upon which bottle you're drinking.

According to a 1921 Facebook entry on March 9, 2010 they switched distilleries from the NOM 1079 Agabe Tequilana to NOM 1535 Destileria Morales, which we have reflected here.
