So, this Codigo 1530 Tequila Encore Edition añejo expression out of NOM 1616….
Man!!! Brah, when I tell you…….
So this bottle was $120 when I purchased it, I was also able to find it online at reservebar.com for $120 a bottle before tax and shipping.
This brand features the traditional blanco, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo expressions like most other brands.
However, they have a George Strait Encore edition reposado, añejo, and extra añejo.
They also have a high proof blanco and añejo.
An artisanal and ancestral mezcal.
Along with a whole lineup of limited edition expressions that includes a, just wait for this one…
14 year double barrel aged extra añejo going for, drumroll please…….
$3,900 dollars before tax and shipping!!!
If you don’t, believe me then check it out at reservebar.com right now!
At least it was there at the time I wrote this article, if it’s gone then it’s clearly on some baller’s bar.
I’ll be trying to get my hands on all these bottles to give a full review of the whole line up, within my price range of course.
And no, the $4k bottle isn’t within my price range!
Recommended Ways To Enjoy
Look people, I actually wrote this article in full before this version of it and I had this long drawn out message about how you should only enjoy this neat.
I’m tired now so going to just keep it simple!
Drink neat 100% of the time in my book.
That’s it, I don’t see it being good in any other fashion.
Rating- Top Shelf
Simply put again, top shelf tequila for sure!
This is my favorite añejo to date and a main stay on my bar.
I’m rarely without it, even at the $100 price tag.
I think so highly of this craft that it literally sparked my love for higher end tequilas and led to me create Tequila Lovers Anonymous!
The bottles and post you’re seeing in this article are like my 4th bottle of this expression.
Tasting Category- Well Balanced
This is the top tequila on my well balanced tequila list!
Legit no joke I love this tequila!
I’m not even going to give y’all any flavor notes just because I want y’all to pick up your own bottles and experience the amazingness for yourselves!
Just know that it was aged in former red wine barrels from Napa Valley….
Check out the look of this bottle and the cigar I decided to pair with this amazing expression below!
