This Barrel No. 217 is exclusive to Nick’s, with no other barrel tasting the same. The tequila was rested in Allier French Oak for not quite a year and recently bottled. This is Patron’s first Allier French Oak single barrel released, making it barrel type No.1. Traditionally, Patron Reposado Tequila is a combination of different barrels, aged for under a year, using various types of wood. When an individual barrel stands alone, many different characteristics and complexities can be found in the tequila that set itself apart from all others. This particular barrel is golden amber in color, with buttery notes of caramel and a rich creaminess leading to an incredibly smooth finish.
