Tequila ArteNOM Seleccion de 1146 Añejo

Atotonilco El Alto, Jalisco (Mountain Agave - Altitude = 4,620')
Tequila ArteNOM Seleccion de 1146 Añejo is 100% Blue Weber Agave and contains no additives whatsoever. 60% of this añejo comes from French oak aged for 2 years, and 40% from French oak aged for 3 years. This blend is then aged together for an additional year in American white oak, which creates an unparalleled underlying complexity.

Casa Tequileña is owned and operated by Arq. Enrique Fonseca, from Atotonilco de Alto, Jalisco (elev. 4,620'). El Arquitecto is a fifth-generation agave cultivator and master distiller, celebrated for owning one of the largest agave holdings in the Los Altos region while simultaneously operating a prized tequila distillery in the eponymous valley town of Tequila.

Tequila ArteNOM presents aficionados with the personal selections of artisan Tequila distillers. These distinctive, limited release Selecciones are carefully chosen to reflect the best of Tequila craftsmanship by highlighting Agave altitude, soil, harvest and unique distillation technique. We invite you to savor these personal distillers' selections and celebrate their art of distinction, the Art of their NOM. No two ArteNOM Selecciones will ever be the same.

Every single thing about this tequila is beautiful. Dark, rich and very thick. Fantastic nose - big agave, caramel, some roasted nuts - which leans toward a sharp bitter spicy earthy sweetness. Many things going on in the taste: agave, vanilla, fruit (soaked raisins?). Very complicated; hard to make it all out it's such a complete well-formed package. A spicy warm finish, more horizontal than vertical, that keeps going. Sweet oaky notes remain once the spice starts to fade. This is a full-bodied beautiful tequila from pour to finish. A class act. And a great old-style presentation, complete with straw-lined wood box, like something salvaged from a sunken armada. Makes for a great gift. For yourself ;-)

I finally got around to opening this bottle this past weekend. What a treat! Just a really nicely crafted anejo. Aromas of agave and spice, taste of agave, caramel, spice and wood. Just excellent.

A cool idea for a brand and tequila from a great distillery. I had to give it a try.

Aroma: The nose is one of the best I've ever smelled. It almost fills the room with a rich agave, spice and butterscotch smell. (Think Don Julio 1942)
Initial Taste: Vanilla and baking spices. A very nice entry.
Body: Really dark and thick body. Coats the glass and your mouth well. Flavors of Agave, spice and butterscotch are the most present with hints of flowers and fruit. Really complex and wonderful.
Finish: Very smooth. No burn at all on the finish and the flavors stay with you nicely. The fruit comes out a little more on the finish along with a bit more oak.

Really a wonderful tequila. Well crafted, great nose, complex flavors, very drinkable. I can't think of a valid critique of this tequila. It's certainly worth the price because it's overall taste is as good or better than most out there in the ultra-premium price range. If you can find it, go out and get this one.
