Tequila Cazadores has unveiled Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release, a limited-edition expression celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the brand’s original reposado recipe.
First created a century ago in the Highland town of Arandas in Jalisco, Mexico, the secret recipe was passed down for generations, and is still used to create every bottle of Tequila Cazadores, the company says.
The 100 Year Estate Release was produced using agave grown and matured on the Cazadores Distillery property in Los Altos de Jalisco. The resulting tequila aged in a combination of American oak and new French oak barrels.
The aroma has an alcoholic note, with cooked agave, wood, citric notes (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon leaf), fruity (apples), cinnamon, honey, caramel, butter, spicy notes (pepper) and vanilla, the company reports. The palate is sweet and smooth, before an aftertaste of cooked agave, citric notes, honey and light vanilla.
The Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release arrives soon in limited quantities nationwide and on Cazadores.com for a suggested retail price of $39.99 for a 750-ml bottle. It’s 80 proof.
