Hey, some mornings we have to take a break from our whiskey studies, menu plans and bottle procurement for some hands on, spiritual research!
Got a visit today from our dear friend, Gail Conde, who jumped ship from Southern Glazer Distributors two years ago to take a chance and rep a new brand of tequila I’d never heard of: Codigo.
She was packing the recently released Codigo 1530 Extra Anejo! Only 3 of this 150 bottle, small batch release made it to Florida! And we just nabbed one of them! The kicker? This special edition was aged for 12 YEARS in ex-Napa Valley Cabernet Casks. Oh, hell yes!!
Wait, what?? 12 Years? Seriously? True story!
Holy fuck is this spirit delicious! Soft, sweet nose and the light heat, deep caramel, butterscotch and orange zest palate is viscous and to die for. The finish doesn’t disappoint either! Long and lingering with just a hint of the currant from the Napa Valley wine barrels where it sat for over a decade!
NOT FAKE NEWS: Gail just informed us that our own Warren Codigo traditional Anejo Select Barrel Pick has also arrived in Florida!
We’ll have those very special bottles available to everyone soon!
This delicious dram will be also be featured on our spirit roster as a one or two ounce pour in-house with 750ml bottles to take home!
