TEQUILA FORTALEZA

November 29, 2018
This handcrafted tequila is made in the same way it was over 140 years ago.  Also known as Tequila Los Abuelos in Mexico, to honor Guillermo Sauza’s great-great-grandfather, this is truly old school tequila.  It’s made in a old copper pot still, which while more labor intensive, leads to higher quality tequila.  This might be the best tequila on the market.

Fortaleza Blanco ($49.99): Aromas of citrus, and rich cooked agave fill your nose in this unique and very special blanco tequila. Also present: butter, olive, earth, black pepper, and a deep inviting vegetal complexity. Flavors include citrus, vanilla, basil, olive, and lime. The finish is long and deep, complex yet easy to drink.

Fortaleza Reposado ($58.99): Aromas of citrus, caramel, butter, cooked agave, and sage are the beginning of a pleasingly balanced and very unique tasting experience. Fortaleza Reposado has it’s own distinct character, and is not like any other tequila.  Flavors include cooked agave, citrus, vanilla, apple, earth, and cinnamon. The finish is long and rich, delicately spicy, and it has an oily texture that make this a joy to drink.

Fortaleza Anejo ($84.99): Caramel, vanilla, butterscotch and cooked agave aromas practically jump from the glass in this highly-praised and perfectly-aged añejo.  Once in your mouth, the full cooked agave experience continues with a thick and oily texture that coats your mouth in a very soothing way. Butterscotch, caramel, toffee, citrus, and hazelnuts are common flavors that people identify.
