El Tesoro de Don Felipe Extra Añejo – A Must-Have!

The other day our good friend Mark Alberto Holt, creator of the SFT Tequila Bar in Sayulita, Mexico, stopped by with a very special gift. He had managed to obtain a rare and much-coveted bottle of El Tesoro de Don Felipe 70th Anniversario extra añejo. This baby is aged 7 years in American white oak bourbon barrels and only 2007 cases were made. The Camarena family released it in 2007 to celebrate 70 years of tequila making.

After hearing Mark talk about the special properties of this tequila—including the fact that it contains juice from especially sweet agave that survived a freeze—we just had to try it.

This tequila has a pleasant nose of sweet agave, vanilla and cherry with a distinct note of molasses. Once it hits the mouth it is soft and smooth with hints of cherry, and honey. The agave “bite” at the back is extremely subtle, making this a great choice for drinkers who prefer rich, subtle flavors over more traditional tequila qualities.

In short, this is a must have extra añejo, if you can find it. Thanks, Mark!

  1. Yes! Great finish indeed! It rocks, It will rock your world. Too bad Lip didn’t get to see it. ; )
    I’ve never tasted cherries in a tequila and it’s cherry season. I think I’ll pour a nice shot of my Senor Rio and suck on a cherry at the same time. Oh yes! I think I just invented the Cherry Margarita!
    Is it true you have moved to somewhere near Jalisco? I hear bits and pieces on faceneck but…..


  2. how much would you be willing to pay for this tequila do you think its worth 150 because i do know if i should buy one and how does it compare to don julio 1942


  3. This is indeed a great tequila, the best batch came on 2005 I remember my father buying dozens of bottles from that batch which was wOw!!! Superb

    Enrique I wouldn’t compare this to Don Julio, these are 2 different tequilas, both great but different, you should buy them both.
