We fell in love with Casa Noble years ago, after tasting the tequila and meeting owner and distiller Pepe Hermosillo. This exceptional producer uses organic 100% blue agave, distills thoughtfully and ages in heavily toasted French oak. The careful combination of agave balanced by high quality oak is breathtaking – the same quality shared with world class whisky or Cognac.
The Whiskey Hotline traveled to Casa Noble in the town of Tequila to find the best. After exhaustive tasting, we returned with two barrels each of three expressions, picking pairs of barrels to ensure supply. Of course, there are always subtle differences across single barrels, but we chose duets that downplay differences, seeking similar barrels that overdeliver within their style.
Bristling with vanilla laced red orchard fruit notes, caramel hints and baking spice following on the quick at the back stretch and far turn, today’s triple crown of Kentucky straight bourbon embodies everything you’d expect from a champion thoroughbred. Resting upon a vast bed of limestone whose mineral content ensures not only strong-boned champion stallions but also forceful whiskies whose breadth of flavors can compete with anything from Scotland or Ireland – Bourbon County enjoys advantages that are the envy of the world.
