Enrique Fonseca, a trailblazer in the world of tequila, embarked on an experimental journey with extra añejo tequilas in the early 2000s. His approach goes beyond the conventional, varying not only the time the tequila rests but also exploring different types of barrels and altitudes for aging. From traditional American and French oak barrels to used bourbon casks and wine barrels, Enrique has curated a collection of some of the most unique aged tequilas. The Fuenteseca line, starting at a minimum of 7 years and reaching up to an impressive 21 years, showcases the culmination of this visionary experimentation. Considering that blue weber agave takes 8-10 years to mature for tequila production, these expressions can take nearly 30 years to produce. A testament to Enrique Fonseca's mastery, Fuenteseca Reserva Extra Anejo 11 Year, distilled in late 2008, is a blend of 30% distilled volume aged in American white oak barrels previously used for California red wine and 70% distilled volume aged in dark French oak barrels. Laid to rest for 11 years in a subterranean barrel room with a cool and dry environment, this tequila offers warm toffee, roasted agave, dried mangos, oak, and ground coffee on the nose, followed by a slightly sweet palate with baking spices, clove, dried fruit, and a peppery yet delicate finish reminiscent of a well-done scotch or cognac. Verified Additive Free by Tequila Matchmaker and bottled at 83.4 proof (41.7% ABV), each Fuenteseca release is a collector's treasure, reflecting the dedication to craft and innovation. Distilled at NOM 1146 in Tequileña, Tequila, Jalisco, this 750mL bottle encapsulates the artistry and expertise of Enrique Fonseca.
