Herradura Seleccion Suprema Extra Anejo Tequila is aged for 49 months in American oak barrels


Since 1870, the Lowlands distillery of Herradura has made world-renowned tequila. The Selección Suprema Extra Añejo is the jewel in its crown and is credited with starting the Extra Añejo category. The double-distilled, 100-percent Weber blue agave, Extra Añejo Tequila is aged for a full 49 months in American oak barrels. Prepare your senses for a treat, as the color is a rich amber-gold with flecks of chocolate brown leading to a nose equally compelling. The scent of apple spice cake with a dark chocolate sauce, accompanied by fresh cherries and vanilla, makes one wish they could eat the spirit, too. The palate is substantially more complex than the formidable nose, adding cigar box, agave, espresso-caramel, toffee and both dried fruits and toasted nuts. The finish caresses your whole body. Its silky and viscous mouthfeel gives way to a finish that is both long and unforgettable.

Price: $350
