FLIGHT NIGHT!!! For all those who don’t know…. This is called a flight. A flight consist of three .75 oz glasses of speciality tequila for sampling. This is a Herradura flight that has the blanco, reposado, and añejo tequilas In the Herradura’s line. Blanco, or white, means there was no aging to the tequila. Reposado, or rested, means the tequila rests in oak barrels for 2-11 months, giving the tequila that light brown color. Anejo, meaning aged, means that the tequila had been aged in old bourbon or whiskey oak barrels for 1-3 years giving the tequila a dark brown color and a smoothness that only comes with the aging process. There is a new age group, extra añejo and these tequilas can be aged for 5-11 years… sometimes LONGER!! The most popular in Mexico is the reposado tequila, and blanco is the most popular in the US… Just thought I’d drop some tequila knowledge on this Tuesday!!#cocktailbandit #tequilatuesday #tequilagirls #tequilatequila#tequilaspecialist #flights #flightnight #mex1 #herradura #charleston
