About the Tequila:
In 2006, Don Julio, with his family, planted their final agave field. In honor of his devotion and craftsmanship, this agave harvest was carefully distilled, barreled, and set aside for a special use. To preserve this tequila and the exquisite agave piñas behind it, we have implemented a Solera aging system. The Solera aging method combines and matures tequilas of different characteristics finished in unique casks, allowing the final agave harvest to remain at the heart of this rare Extra Añejo Tequila.

Our Ultima Reserva has been rested in oak, previously used to age bourbon, and finished in Madeira wine-seasoned casks. Salud, to creating only the exceptional.

Maturation: 3 years in oak, finished in Madeira wine-seasoned casks

Only 4,000 bottles produced

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Toasted oak and caramel

Palate: Hints of apricot and orange

Finish: Deliciously smooth honeyed agave


Grade: A - Drinkhacker

"This is an exceptional tequila that deserves immediate attention. The nose doesn’t shy away from agave. This is no syrupy extra anejo that’s all sugar, but rather a brighter exploration of both the earth and the barrel, with notes of caramel, sweet tea, lemon cake, and coconut all making for a dazzlingly complex aromatic mix — all infused with peppery agave. The palate shines, showcasing cinnamon cookies and brown sugar — almost like churros at times — though again the agave keeps everything in balance. A strong vein of vanilla and chocolate both build as the finish, reminding me of chocolate mousse at times, though dusted so gently with notes of white pepper. It’s a heady experience but never a heavy one, and it’s one of the most approachable and balanced extra anejos I’ve ever encountered. In a category where balance is often elusive, Don Julio nails it with this special release."
