Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2012 is a Cognac cask finished reposado tequila that is aged to perfection in American oak barrels for 11 months and is transferred to French oak casks sourced from the historic Cognac region for an additional three months.
The double-barrel maturation process accentuates the aromas of cooked agave and dried fruit, which is balanced on the palate by earthy and spicy notes. The finish is exceptionally smooth and warm with caramel and vanilla undertones. The Coleccion de la Casa series is the best example in the industry of how each of the sources of flavor – agave, water, fermentation, distillation, and maturation – impacts the character of the final product.
The barrel is a key ingredient in the final aging process of tequila and through cask-finishing our tequila in two different types of woods, we are able to add a new layer of flavor and aroma and create a superb and multi-dimensional tequila.
