Caballito Cerrero

Caballito Cerrero is a Tequila company founded in 1950 by Don Alfonso Jimenez Rosales. It is considered one of the top Tequila distilleries in the world. They’re committed to producing Tequila the traditional way and that sometimes means they butt heads with the Consejo Regulador del Tequila (CRT). For this reason, they label their traditionally produced Tequilas as Destilado de Agave.

We got this bottle at the distillery in December 2019. If you get a chance to visit the distillery you should do so. It is an incredible journey and the distillery is old and beautiful. Don Rosario gave us a tour and a tasting.
The color is light straw, considering it has been in barrels for 9 months, very light. Oily in the glass with long lasting legs/tears.
Aroma is wonderful with strong agave, butter and pepper. Lots of character.
Taste is full of agave with some buttery sweetness, a bit more interesting than tequilana weber (el azul), hints of nuts and citrus.
Finish has pepper, some warm and dark sweetness, and last medium-long–very pleasant. Smooth and refined but still having some bold character.
Overall: this is a mezcal (but not in name due to the rebel nature of this company) made with the tequila process–most notably without smoke, they use steam ovens. As a “tequila” I rate it 4/5. As a “mezcal” its 3/5. Please keep breaking the rules! Great stuff.
