PaQui’s top-of-the-line Tequila aged a full fourteen months in American Whiskey casks.
Tequila Holdings was founded by John Chappell in 2006. The company got the trademark on PaQui in 2008 and began working on what would become their signature Tequila offering. Once they had developed their products, they started selling in a grass-roots effort with John and his sales manager selling bottles of finished Tequila literally door-to-door to restaurants and bars in New York City. Met with success and a solid reorder rate, they launched a successful fund-raising campaign on StartEngine to ramp up product and build distribution.
PaQuí Tequila Añejo is the bigger, beefier big-brother to the Reposado. It shares their pedigree and upbringing of its younger sibling. That means well-matured Weber blue agave plant and expert production by the folks at Distillery Autentica Tequilera in the town of Tequila. But this version has aged in American Whiskey casks for three and a half times longer — a full fourteen months. And that aging makes this an entirely new dram, and one that you should taste for yourself.
PaQui is said to be an Aztec word that translates as "to be happy." The logo is a stylized Aztec warrior who is dancing.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The floral and savory herb aromas are still here, but they are expanded with notes of anise, oaky tannins, and creamy butterscotch.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is rich, balanced, and lightly sweet with butterscotch arriving first, followed by signature florals, vanilla bean, and a bit of roasted Hatch chili..
The finish is long, warm, and savory.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in PaQui Tequila Añejo and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
