Ocho Tropical 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 Tropical has been aged in rum casks from Fiji, Trinidad and Panama, acquired through Maison Ferrand (Plantation Rum). On the nose are fresh cherries, peach, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, marzipan, honey, demerara, chocolate, hazelnuts, passion fruit with licorice and lavender. The palate brings bitter chocolate, prunes, coffee, plum, cherry and vanilla, before a finish of aniseed, white pepper and sweet spice. Bottled at 91.6 proof.
