Tequila Herradura Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2014 – Scotch Cask Finish Reposado
This is not just any tequila or any premium tequila for that matter, it’s Herradura’s Coleccion De La Casa limited edition line of reposado tequilas. This ultra-premium, small batch Reposado rest in two different types of oak casks; American oak and single malt Scotch casks (this is the third in the series). It’s a beautiful marriage – hello Tequila meets Scotch! By initiating this simple act the flavor of the final product is altered, which in essence creates an entirely new flavor profile. So what are some of the new flavors that are created by these double oak casks??? You get honey, vanilla, butter, caramel and balanced soft spices. The finish is the thing that completely won me over; it’s very soft and smooth to the palate with just a hint of sweetness. It is best paired with smoked and rich dishes; a delicious smoked trout works for me in case you were wondering. Additionally, I would suggest having it neat or on the rocks.
