Excellia Anejo Tequila

The Schtick: This is a tequila product that spends 18 months aging in a combination of sauternes and cognac barrels. Really interesting concept.

Review #1346 | Tequila Review #3

Distiller: Excellia

Bottler: Excellia

Brand: Excellia


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: 1 Year

Nose: Sweet, heavy oak nose, pang of ethanol, syrupy sweet agave.

Taste: Thin mouth feel, not a lot going on. No heat. Agave, light smoke, faint oak, pepper.

Finish: Short, a bit hot, loaded with pepper, faint smoke, some sweet cream and berry and then it’s gone.

Overall: This is interesting but not exceptional. I don’t really pick up much on the barrel influence, and there wasn’t a ton going on in the first place.

Thanks for reading!
