When it comes to tequila, quality and magnificent taste cannot be rushed. The handful of brands that constitute the upper echelons of the category are produced without shortcuts or compromise. Certainly such is the case with Milagro Select Barrel Reserve 100% Pure Blue Agave Añejo Tequila.
Ultra-premium Milagro is crafted in Jalisco at Tequilera Cielito Lindo. It’s made with estate grown agaves that are slow roasted in brick ovens for 36-hours before being triple-distilled in small batches. The limited edition Milagro Select Barrel Reserve Añejo is then distilled in small French oak casks for a minimum of three years.

Those who genuinely appreciate great tequila refer to the brand’s flagship marque with reverence. The amber-hued añejo has a silky, lightweight body and a wafting bouquet of citrus and spice. The entry is warm and slightly sweet. It’s followed closely by waves of dry herbal and peppery flavors that persist on the palate for an impressively long time. The delectable finish is a fitting end to a remarkable sipping experience.

Prior to bottling, ultra-premium Milagro Select Barrel Reserve Silver spends a stint in new French oak barrels for smoothness and to elicit its exceptional character. The crystal clear masterpiece has a sleek, slightly oily body and a generous bouquet of herbs, citrus and a touch of vanilla. It glides over the palate without undue heat then slowly ebbs into a spicy, lip-smacking finish.

The highly acclaimed Milagro Select Barrel Reserve Reposado is barrel-aged 10-months in new oak. It’s a vivacious, limited release spirit loaded with aromatics and long-lasting flavors. Top-notch.
