On the nose there is a bouquet of highland agave that captures both the earthiness and the honey of the agave whilst adding complex layers of green vegetables and a nice dose of minerality. More of the green vegetables,
earthiness and some green pepper enter softly on the palate at the start before you are hit with a robust and earthy agave bomb on the mid-palate that comes with a dash of light citrus on the sides of the palate. It is medium to fullbodied with a velvety mouth feel and finishes with a light bitter citrus, more cooked agave flavors and black
pepper. This Tequila is all about earthy cooked & raw agave flavors.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Strong aromas of roasted earth and moss are integrated on the pungent nose. There is a nice salinity in the mouth followed by charred green vegetables and herbs, finishing with notes of lime rind. Texturally fine grained and suede-like. (Apr 2016)
Tequila Cabeza is made from 100% estate owned agave that is grown in the Los Altos region in Arandas. The agave are grown by the Vivanco family, who have been cultivating agaves on their 800-heactare mountainside land for five generations, and handpicked by the Jimadors at seven to nine years of age when the agave has a sugar content of 23-28%. It is grown without pesticides, on land that has been used for the cultivation of agave for over 100 years.
