Ocho Single Estate 2017 Los Nopales Plata Tequila

$46.50
Size
One of the few tequilas still made slowly in the old fashioned way, Tequila Ocho is a spirit which accentuates that which is exclusive to tequila, the agave flavor. Ocho is the first tequila to designate both the year it was produced and the precise field from which the family grown agaves were sourced. Each batch comes from a different field or rancho contributing distinctive characteristics of that place.

The rancho “Los Nopales” at 2070 meters altitude, belonged to Carlos Camarena’s grandfather, Don Felipe Camarena. It is surrounded by other agave fields, however, on its east side there are wild prickle pear cactuses forming a fence, hence the name “Los Nopales”. The average sugar content was 27.5 % and the age of the plants was 6 years and 9 months at harvest. This is the first time in 35 years this land was used to grow agave.

Aromas of pineapple, green banana, orange blossom, sea pool minerality, chamomile blossoms, marzipan, freshly cut grass, and river stone minerality. Flavors of sweet yellow fruit, spearmint, cut grass, earthy, chamomile, and flan caramel.
