Tequila: Not the Same Old
Don Julio Real
This extra añejo is made from blue agave that is seven to 10 years old; then the liquid is aged for three to five years in American white-oak barrels. The result is a subtle vanilla taste with hints of almond.

Milagro Select Barrel Reserve Añejo
After triple distillation, this tequila is aged for three years in French white-oak barrels. It’s a nuanced blend of sweet and oaky, with hints of vanilla, chocolate, caramel and tobacco.
Patrón Extra Añejo 7 Años
The risk with aging tequila is that, if it’s done too long, it can eliminate the flavor of the agave. That’s why it’s easy to appreciate the remarkable, fruity, caramel flavor Patrón achieved with this smooth sipping tequila aged in oak barrels for seven years.
