Montagave 'Exploración' Volume I Añejo
Orders placed during this release are expected to ship in early December.
Derived from the Spanish word for 'exploration', Exploración reflects our insatiable thirst for innovation, our unwavering commitment to quality, and our profound respect for tradition.
With every batch of Exploración, we push the boundaries of what tequila can be—merging tradition with innovation, craftsmanship with creativity. Every drop of our Exploración series bears testimony to our journey of innovation. Our meticulous selection of blue agave, the careful orchestration of fermentation and distillation, and the thoughtful aging program using only the finest barrels in the world—all converge to create a symphony of flavors, textures, and aromas that are both unique and timeless.
Quality is the compass that guides everything we do. This unwavering commitment ensures that the Exploración Series is not just a tequila, but an experience—an invitation to discerning palates to join us on a journey of discovery to celebrate the fusion of innovation and quality that makes the Montagave Exploración series truly exceptional.
Montagave Exploración Vol. I was matured to achieve the fullest possible flavor. Throughout its 13-month aging process in the barrel, we sampled it on multiple occasions with Chava Rosales and the Cascahuín team. Each tasting reaffirmed its exceptional quality and evolving structure, though it continued to benefit from additional interaction with the Bordeaux casks. We're excited to share that after 13 months, this Vol. I release is truly outstanding.
It gleams golden in the glass and has a nose of oven-roasted agave and dried apricots, underlined by a touch of dark chocolate and dried cherries. On the palate, the symphony of caramelized agave, toasted almonds, and a sprinkle of black pepper resonates. A trace of dark cocoa and orange zest lingers, providing a finish that is round, warm, and invigorating. Complex yet approachable, the Exploración Añejo beckons both the tequila aficionado and the curious newcomer, uniting them in a shared journey of discovery. This release is perfect to be savored with friends and loved ones to elevate any chosen occasion.
