Aged in American and Eastern European oak barrels for a minimum of 3 years, this clear Cristalino Extra Añejo sparkles with steel and platinum reflections. The quality of the liquid is evident from the long drops that collect forming pronounced legs on the sides of the glass.
On the nose, a compelling marriage of caramel, honey, cooked agave and dried fruit such as fig or quince emerges, with hints of chocolate, tobacco and sweets that make for an enticing, aromatic scent. Some herbal notes add a touch of freshness and lightness with a hint of lingering vanilla and nutmeg on the finish.
The voluminous, rich taste of Dobel 50™ fills the palate with a silky mouth-feel that reflects the quality of the liquid achieved through copper pot distillation. Notes of fig, quince, date, pineapple and pumpkin, together with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and clove, emerge with each sip ultimately giving way to a long and pleasant finish.
The smooth, silky sensation of the liquid is the result of an innovative, proprietary refinement process that prevents the bitter notes of the barrel from impeding on the elegance of the aromas. The final filtration process also eliminates color, resulting in a perfectly clear, rule-defying Cristalino Extra Añejo.
