Cincoro Añejo gains its remarkable aromas and taste from a unique aging regimen. Cincoro’s barrels were first used to age Tennessee whiskey. By aging Cincoro Blanco in these barrels, Cincoro highlights the smoothness of their blanco, complemented by wood notes from aging 24 to 28 months in an underground cellar, considerably longer than the minimum 1 year required for añejo. Subtle notes of toasted oak and maple on the nose are followed by sweet cooked agave, light butterscotch and baking spices on the palate. It has a remarkably long and elegant finish with lingering notes of dark chocolate.
About the Brand: A special project from basketball legend, billionaire, and owner of the Charlotte Hornets, Michael Jordan, Lakers co-owner Jeanie Buss, Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Wes Edens and Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck and Emilia Fazzalari, Cincoro Tequila is made from a celebrated blend of both valley, and highland agaves. The bottle and packaging are a commissioned piece from Mark Smith, Vice President of Innovation Special Projects at Nike, while the name “Cincoro” comes from a blending of two Spanish words, “cinco” and “oro.” The portmanteau pays homage to the five founding partners and their pursuit to create the gold standard in Tequila.
