The Extra Anejo Ultra is the crown jewel of the Clase Azul portfolio as exceptional tequila and decanter exclusively designed for collectors and aficionados around the world.
Its journey lasts almost 14 years. Five of those years are spent inside a Spanish barrel that previously contained sherry, adding a sublime touch. The decanter is hand-made and dressed in the most intricate yet delicate artistry of artisans, its decoration includes three precious metals: pure platinum, a silver medallion, and a 24-karat gold label.
The tequila is distilled from nine year old blue weber agave that has been coked for 72 hours. The tequila is fermented with Clase Azul's very own yeast strain before being pot distilled. Finally the tequila is aged for five years in ex-sherry casks from Spain.
Deep Amber in color, the aromas are intense on the nose with soft oak and dark spice. The palate is a mix of caramel sweetness and spice with a long and lingering finish. The agave flavor is subdued and the spirit is much more like a whisky than a tequila which makes for fine sipping.
