From Destiladora Juanacatlán, a small distillery in the lowlands region of Jalisco, Mexico, Soltado Spicy Añejo Tequila is produced at one of only two farmer-owned, co-op distilleries in the country of Mexico.
Twice distilled, and filtered 10 times, their añejo tequila is made from 100% blue Weber agave and aged 28 months in American white oak. After aging, Soltado Spicy Añejo Tequila is infused with fresh, locally grown organic Serrano peppers and cinnamon.
As part of their core values and brand mission, socially responsible Soltado has supported local and national charities through dollar matching programs, event donations, and by leveraging their fan base to drive awareness. From humanitarian causes, animal welfare, health related foundations, and urban farming initiatives, Soltado Tequila remains a purpose driven brand.
Soltado Spicy Añejo Tequila (80 proof)
Visual: Light gold with a slight copper tinge.
Nose: Verdant spiciness with a slight agave sweetness, but ultimately leads back to spice. Fresh tequila aroma with a slight earthiness. Mellow and pleasant.
Taste: Initially soft tequila, but then a massive wave of chili spice overpowers any subtleties. After a minute, the tequila comes through again and finishes with a mildly honeyed finish.
Finish: A slight lingering smoky sweetness.
Overall: A tequila that will appeal to chili-heads. Great in a Bloody Maria, but also adding a splash of this to a chocolate liqueur like Bailey’s will make for a great wintertime/cold weather cocktail.
GSN Rating: B+
