El Tesoro to Release Limited Edition Tequila Finished in Laphroaig Casks
El Tesoro de Don Felipe® Tequila announced the “Mundial” Limited Edition Series, a new single-barrel tequilas finished in unique casks that have previously held premium spirits from across the globe.
The inaugural release in this series taps one of the greats in Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Laphroaig 10 Year Old. El Tesoro Mundial Collection: The Laphroaig® Edition is a limited-edition bottling bringing together two worlds of craft spirits, marrying tequila with the barrel-aging expertise of Scotch.
El Tesoro Mundial Collection: The Laphroaig Edition integrates the peaty profile of an Islay whisky with El Tesoro’s agave Añejo. Distiller Carlos Camarena worked closely with the Laphroaig distillery team to create this singular expression, aged first for nine months in ex-bourbon barrels and then finished for four months in Laphroaig 10-Year-Old casks.
The 40% ABV tequila will be available in select markets starting in mid-November. SRP is $125.
