El Carbonzado refers to the use of Tennessee whiskey barrels to further age and influence the base AsomBroso tequila. A prime component of excellent Tennessee whiskey is the use of charcoal as a filtration medium and flavor enhancing catalyst. The inside of the barrels are actually charred which caramelizes the wood and provides full contact with the charred surface during the aging process. The use of the whiskey barrels to further age the AsomBroso Anejo creates a tequila with a smokey, earthy influence that is smooth with a slightly charred finish. Hence, the El Carbonzado moniker
