Tequila Cayéya Single Barrel Añejo presents itself with unwavering authenticity in its cask strength bottling. The distillate embarks on a transformation, maturing initially within a singular American White Oak cask for a span of 15.5 months. This journey concludes with a refined touch as it rests within a sole French Oak cask for an additional 2.5 months, embodying the essence of a true single barrel, single finish Tequila – an unblended masterpiece.
Each bottle bears the distinction of a designated barrel and batch number, showcasing the ABV, and the signature of our esteemed Female Master Destiladora, Zandra Gomez. The culmination of these efforts spans a total aging period of 18 months, each moment a testament to the meticulous dedication invested in crafting this prized spirit.
It's important to note that we release this extraordinary tequila periodically, a testament to the intricate production process required to bestow this coveted spirit upon you.
As you approach the glass, an inviting aroma fills the air. The nose opens with bold notes of toasted oak and caramel, a testament to the extended aging period. The fragrance is intense, with layers of vanilla, maple syrup, and toffee, creating a luscious and enticing bouquet. Hints of dark chocolate and espresso emerge, lending a touch of decadence. The high cask strength amplifies the aromas, adding an additional depth and complexity.
With the first sip, the full impact of the distillate's prolonged interaction with the re-charred American oak becomes apparent. Rich flavors of butterscotch and dark caramel coat the palate, alongside an intense wave of toasted vanilla and charred oak. The higher alcohol content at cask strength intensifies the flavor profile, adding depth and complexity. Robust notes of dark chocolate, black cherries, and black pepper emerge, contributing to a complex and satisfying taste experience.
During the mid-palate, the flavors continue to develop and evolve. The influence of the re-charred American oak persists, offering layers of spice, including cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. The additional 2.5 months of finishing at cask strength infuses the distillate with an even greater intensity, enhancing the richness and depth of flavors. The oak imparts a subtle smokiness, intermingling with notes of dried fruits and hints of leather, creating a truly captivating and multidimensional tasting journey.
The finish is exceptionally long and robust, with the flavors lingering on the palate. The charred oak and dark caramel continue to dominate, leaving a lasting impression. A delightful warmth persists, courtesy of the cask strength, providing a powerful and satisfying conclusion to the tasting experience.
The mouthfeel is full-bodied and velvety, with an oily and luxurious texture that envelops the palate. The higher alcohol content at cask strength adds weight and intensity, creating a rich and indulgent sensation.
