Vuelo del Aviador Gran Reserva Tequila Extra Anejo
Vuelo del Aviador crafts artisanal tequila of the highest quality in Jalisco, Mexico. Their lineup of luxury spirits consists of the Plata, Reposado, Aejo, and Extra Aejo. The finest blue weber agaves used are fully-matured, meaning they have been growing on the estate for 7 to 9 years. They are then cooked slowly in clay ovens for 72 hours before the pulp is fermented and distilled using copper-pot stills. The different juices then get aged for varying amounts of time, from the Plata which takes 4 months, to the Extra Aejo which takes 5 to 7 years. Different casks are used for maturation. These include French and American oak, Napa Valley red wine barrels, as well as whiskey casks. The Plata has won a Double Gold Medal at the 2020 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The Vuelo del Aviador Gran Reserva Extra Aejo is based on the same award-winning spirit as their Plata expression. This one is the crown jewel in their stellar lineup of tequila and their ultra-premium masterpiece. It's a blend of tequila that has spent 5 years in whiskey barrels and tequila that was aged for 7 years in red wine barrels, making for a luxurious drinking experience with a presentation to match. Bottled at 80 proof, the handcrafted spirit has enticing sherry notes on the nose, along with a palate that invokes XO cognac with plenty of dried fruit and oak notes.
