Caballito Cerrero Chato Añejo
Using the rare, but traditional agave varietal "Chato" (Angustifolia) Caballito has crafted a historically significant link to the old ways of producing Tequila.
This squat agave is not uncommon in the valley around Guadalajara and would have been used in distilleries to produce spirit prior to the tequila "normas" being established in the middle of the 20th Century.
Caballito Cerrero has re-established the cultivation of the historical plant with this extremely unique and delicious agave spirit. It does provide a glimpse into the past, connecting us with what the great spirit of Mexico might have tasted like two or three hundred years ago. Chato's distinct character can only be described as more vegetal than the Blue Weber. Expect a complex nose of roast pepper and fresh herbs.
Aged for 13 months in ex bourbon barrels sourced from Barton 1792 Distillery, Kentucky USA.
The palate is smooth and surprisingly vibrant considering the time in the barrels. The agave shines through and mixes harmoniously with wood and vanilla notes coming from the barrel.
