New Trend: Aged Blanco Tequilas


New trend alert.

Aging Blanco tequilas in barrels. Seeing more and more brands do this, it softens the flavor just a little bit. Now, by law, you can put a blanco in a barrel for up to 60 days.

And these brands are starting to do some of that, and just, it makes it a little, just a little softer, a little rounder, just a little more flavor, just a little kiss. It's a really interesting technique.

Yeah. It adds just a teeny bit of color, as you can kind of see in some of these bottles.

This is Inspiro. They do 30 days in barrels. Tierra de Ensueño does 14 days in barrels. ArteNOM 1123 does 30 days or so. So in brandy casks that previously held mezcal, so it actually gets a little smoky as well, which is kind of cool. So I really like this trend.

Yeah. Have you guys tried a Blanco aged in barrels? Let us know in the comments.
