From Ricardo Gamarra’s personal collection, we proudly debut the Vintage 11 Year Extra Añejo. The Vintage has a 20 year gestation — after taking about 9 years to mature, the blue agave is processed and aged in special French oak casks for 11 years. AsomBroso Vintage has been described as “Nectar of the Gods,” and compares well to the finest cognacs. This vintage is housed in a decanter designed after the chandelier in the Bellagio Las Vegas Resort & Casino lobby. Called “Fiori de Como” by world-renowned glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, and displayed in a finely-polished humidor and elegantly rests on a laser-engraved custom petal. This product was originally an exclusive tequila for the Bellagio Hotel VIP guests.
The nose is sweet with hints of butterscotch and caramel; aeration expands to include honey oak, and a touch of cinnamon; the opening palate is warming agave without the bitterness. Mid-palate reveals notes of vanilla and oak moving towards a smooth finish.
