ArteNOM Seleccion 1146 Añejo Tequila 750ml
The results of the only tequila project of its kind, this añejo tequila from a selección project is a reflection of Mexico's unique history and geography brought to you from the highest altitude tequila distillery. The ArteNOM line of products, the brainchild of Jake Lustig, is totally worthy of respect and praise. His mission is to expose tequila lovers to some of the best distilleries in the industry, and this killer Tequila easily makes the cut.
A unique approach utilising former cabernet franc wine casks sourced from the Loire Valley in France is used for the maturation of this tequila. Enrique Fonseca, master mezcalero (distiller) uses these wine casks to age 60% of this tequila for two years and the remaining 40% for three years. He then ages them together for an additional year in American white oak barrels. Bold and herbaceous on the nose with distinct sweet and creamy flavours of toffee, walnut candy, custard along with zesty orange and dark chocolate.750ml
