Review: Herradura Ultra Anejo Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 25, 2019

The Herradura Tequila brand is owned by Brown-Froman. It is produced thirty miles from Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, in the town of Amatitan, at Brown – Forman Tequila Distillery Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V. which is also referred to as Hacienda Herradura. The Herradura spirit produced here uses agave cooked in traditional old stone ovens, and distilled on old copper pot stills.

The subject of this review, the Herradura Ultra Anejo is a true 100% Weber Blue agave tequila. According to the Brown-Foreman website:

With the perfect blend of our premium Añejo and Extra Añejo barrels, ULTRA is a crystal-clear tequila. A subtle hint of agave nectar offers a superior taste that will transport tequila connoisseurs beyond smoothness.

Although the spirit is produced from aged tequila, a clear colour is achieved via a filtering process through activated charcoal that softens and crystallizes the blend of Añejo and extra Añejo tequila. Prior to filtering, a dab of pure agave nectar is added giving Ultra a light sweetness with hints of caramel and cooked agave.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Herradura Ultra Anejo Tequila

“… The breezes above the glass seemed muted as the filtering has muted much of the oak and wood spice to the point that all I can decipher (of the woody notes) is the light scent of sandalwood. The typically strong earthy note of agave is severely tempered as well. Within these muted scents of oak and agave are additional mild notes of vanilla and hints of caramel …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with a couple of nice cocktail suggestions.

Chimo!
