Tequila Joven (Blend of Blanco and Reposado Tequila)
Visual phase: Bright, straw-colored with silver and gold hues, full-bodied and sumptuous. Olfactory phase: At first impression, notes of caramel, vanilla, and coconut are perceived due to its barrel aging, with soft hints of citrus, lemon, and orange blossom. Delicate shades of preserved fruits, cherry, peach, fresh grass, and intense cooked agave. Tasting phase: Sweet, with magnificent complexity of flavors and mouthfeel. A forward presence of intense cooked agave and a soft aftertaste of ripe grapefruit.
To be paired with strong and intense flavors that enhance the Tequila’s notes against the food. Seafood such as shellfish, chocolate clams, fresh ceviches, fish dishes with strong flavorings, or coconut shrimp. Pairs well with charcuterie such as prosciutto and jabugo or cured cheeses such as goat, bleu, manchego, port salut, or Roquefort. Pairs extraordinarily well with dark chocolate, particularly 70% cocoa and above, quince jelly, chocolate-covered strawberries, and crème brûlée. The pairing with cigars is exceptional.
