Ocho Continental Barrel Select Anejo Tequila
Ocho's Barrel Select Tequilas come from fully ripened blue weber agave grown in Los Altos — the highlands — of Jalisco, Mexico that have been owned and operated by the Camarena family for five generations.
The Barrel Select Continental aged in cognac casks from Maison Ferrand. Aromas include aniseed, chocolate, custard marzipan, marshmallow, jasmine, apricot and cooked agave. The palate is dark chocolate, toffee, nutmeg and mace on the initial taste. The midpalate develops into mango, vanilla and cinnamon sweetness, light white pepper and clove notes, evocative of mango custard. Bottled at 86.2 proof.
