Despite its long ageing, this minimum 30-month blend is not overtly sweet or oaky; it has a drier style, which is full of spice and character from its highland terroir. Cooked agave is present with a fine mixture of dried fruits, almonds and roasted coffee. There is a subtle and masked fudginess reminiscent of dark cocoa that emerges in its long and slightly dry finish.
Varietal / Blend: Tequila
Farming Practices: Conventional
Don Fulano tequila was created in 2000 by master distiller/blender Enrique Fonseca and Sergio Mendoza. After farming agave for five generations, the Fonseca family acquired La Tequileña (NOM1146), a distillery that had been producing tequila for more than 85 years in the town of Tequila.
Don Fulano uses only estate-grown, mature agave from fields where crops are rotated. Fermentation takes place in open tanks using wild and cultivated yeast without accelerants. Don Fulano is aged exclusively in 200 litre casks of new and used dark oak (French Limousin, Nevers & Slovak) and it is non-charcoal filtered.
No additives are used (colour, sugar, glycerine).
