Reportedly the first ever “extra anejo tequila” a new designation recently allowed under Mexican law, established in 2006 for tequilas aged three years or longer commercially released Gran Centenario’s Leyenda is as dark a tequila as ever seen.
The oak-brown color is seriously misleading, for this is as smooth a spirit as you’ll find, offering spearmint tones on the nose and very surprising citrus character alongside deep vanilla notes in the body from all that time in wood. Orange and spice linger on the finish, giving way to a minty finale that is crystal clear and silky clean. This is one of the best tequilas on the market today.
Gran Centenario Leyenda's is a unique and extremely whisky barrel dominated anejo that will appeal to fans of Islay Scotch whisky. It’s perfectly suited for an after dinner snifter or the most refined cocktail.
