A regal take on what many consider to be an essentially rustic distillate, Don Amado Añejo shows amazing complexity beyond simple smoke, and is a great example how barrel flavors can complement rather than mask agave’s wild charms.
Savory, mesquite aromas hint at barbecue and toasted cayenne pepper, while flavors flow between layers of baked stonefruit from the brandy barrel aging. Palate continues in similar form with notes of grilled pineapple, and the finish shows a long, bright and refreshing saline minerality.
