A Special, Limited Edition Gift Set In Honor of Mexican Craftsmanship
Each crystal decanter of Casa Dragones Joven has been engraved by hand using the traditional Mexican technique of pepita. Encircling this special edition bottle is a beautiful hand engraved motif representing a string of lights, for a unique and elegant holiday gift. The second in a series, this 2016 Limited Edition Holiday Gift Set also includes two crystal Riedel Tequila glasses, delicately engraved by hand using the same sophisticated motif. The Casa Dragones Joven gift set is beautifully packaged in the signature blue gift box.
Our Maestro Tequilero and a select group from the Academia Mexicana de Catadores de Tequila (Mexican Academy of Tequila Tasters) participated in writing our tasting notes. Body & Color - Rich silk body, with brilliant platinum hues and long pronounced legs, indicating a full body with a sleek texture on the palate. Aroma - Fresh and inviting, subtle floral and citrus aroma with notes of sweet roasted agave. Taste - Soft and smooth with hints of vanilla and spiced undertones, balanced with delicate notes of pear. Finish - Clean, warm finish with hints of hazelnut and a bright, open aftertaste.
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Although billed as a joven, this Tequila is blended with a touch of anejo. The end result is extraordinarily smooth, with a very sweet, fruity, almost wine-like nose but a bold, pure peppery flavor that finishes cleanly. The packaging is gift-worthy, presenting the bottle in a gold-and-robin’s egg blue box, like a precious jewel..Kara Newman, May/2013
