Grand Mayan Ultra Aged Single Barrel Tequila
The Grand Mayan Ultra Aged Single Barrel Tequila is as aromatic as it is smooth and delicious. It smells like nuts and is easy on the palate. It takes over three years for the spirits to become full-flavored. That’s what ultra aging does for tequila. Grilled pork, roasted chicken tacos with chipotle sauce, and steak rubbed with various spices are all delicious ways to celebrate the distinct flavors of this tequila.
The hand-painted ceramic bottle is gorgeous, but so is what's in the bottle: a blend of three-four- and five-year old Tequilas. Look for a deep amber hue and complex aromas that unfold jalapeño, brown sugar and cocoa. The palate-coating, slightly viscous palate opens with clove and coriander, warming to cocoa, browned butter, and sarsaparilla, and finishes on black pepper and cinnamon. The overall effect almost reads like a Tequila-based amaro.
