Proof66 Notes

Tequila Tapatio is owned by the Camarenas family whose progenitor Don Felipe taking control of the distillery in 1937 (the La Altena Distillery). The family grows their own agave--the tequila could be considered estate tequila for that reason. Their tequila is known as El Tesoro de Don Felipe in the United States and is their only tequila label. Every bottle is bottled by hand.

El Tesoro 70th Aniversario Extra-Anejo tequila is a special release made from agave harvested in 2000 that an especially high sugar content of 37% (they say typical agave is 30%-33%). It is aged for 7 years and issued in the 70th anniversary of the distillery first founded in 1937. They call it a "coincidence of lucky 7s."

The "El Tesoro Extra-Anejo" was listed in the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition results and we have surmised that they meant the 70th Aniversario expression.

Hallelujah, a spirit that I was extremely hyped up about but managed to somehow meet expectations. Bar none the best tequilla I've had... this El Tesoro line is something special. Having spent some quality time with the reposado & the Anejo, I finally managed to track down the paradiso & (luckily) this anniversario for thanksgiving. THe paradiso is wonderful & elegent but this anniversario is something special. The desciption on the bottles (great agave season, higher sugar content, ect, ect is spot on). It has a complex, balanced smooth profile with this tantalizingly light sweetness on the back end that lights up out of no where. I was pouring this and the paradiso all thanksgiving to family that generally dislikes tequilla & they all loved this (made paradiso look very average in comparison which is tough to do). I'm taking my time with this bottle because I know there aren't many of them left... what a shame. It's a 6 out of 5, buy immediately if you can find it...
