True to its name, Reserva 44 is aged for 44 months, resulting in a tequila that is beautifully dark and richly complex. The Extra Añejo designation was created in 2006 for tequilas that see at least three years of aging, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that Avión takes the time and expense to age their Reserva 44 longer to take it to the next level.
Like Avión's entire line, Reserva 44 is crafted from agave that's been handpicked and meticulously selected from Avión's own estate in Jalisco, Mexico. The agave is grown at 7,000 feet above sea level, instilling a tension of delicacy and ultra-richness to this blend.
The agave is then slow roasted to lock in the lush natural flavors. The first 43 months of the aging process are spent in large oak barrels, with the final month in petite new oak barrels that are carefully rotated daily for maximum interaction with the wood. This is obsessive perfectionism we're grateful for.
This may be the greatest aged tequila we've ever experienced.
