Directo de Alambique is the fourth tequila from Tequila Herradura’s small-batch series called Colección de la Casa Reserva. For the fourth consecutive year Tequila Herradura a brand of Brown-Forman Corp., releases the supremely unique and intriguing tequila. By altering one of the five sources of taste, a new flavor is revealed. Last year, the outcome is a bold tequila expression for true tequila lovers.
At 110 proof without barrel aging, “Directo” is a crystal-clear tequila with robust notes of sweet agave, green pepper, citrus, and a hint of herbs and spice. Taken together, these notes provide a smooth, complex, and prolonged presence.
If ask Ruben Aceves, the brand’s master taster about Directo, he will warn you: “This is not a tequila for everyone.”
Priced at $90, Tequila Herradura Colección de la Casa Reserva 2015 – Directo de Alambique is available nationwide.
