Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Custard like aromas are soft and sweet, with hints of lime and lime zest. In the mouth it is spicy with sweet vanilla laden creme brulee undertones. It is at once sweet and soft as well as spicy and piquant, tantalizing the palate. (Mar 2015)

|Launched to the world in 2009 by a serial entrepreneur and tequila aficionado - DeLeon defied the conventions of the category to establish a new level of luxury in tequila.
DeLeon Tequila is made from the finest 100% Highland Blue Weber agave sourced from the rich earth of the Los Altos region of Jalisco. Hand-selected at harvest for highest quality and peak ripeness, our plants yield the sweetest pinas, giving the tequila its abundant character and balance. Slow roasting of the agave in traditional brick and clay ovens, combined with slow fermentation, under the precise guidance of our master distiller contribute enriched depth and complexity to the agave’s natural sweetness, creating a remarkably nuanced character. DeLeon achieves this astonishing depth of flavor in just two distillations - allowing the tequila to retain the unique character acquired during the fermentation process.
With relentless attention to detail our master distiller artfully cuts the beginning and end of the distillation, allowing only the absolute best portion, or Corazon, to find its way into every bottle, creating a subtle taste profile with unrivaled smoothness. For the aged expressions, an unconventional process blends the art of tequila with the mastery of French winemaking through a unique combination of bold American oak barrels and fine French wine casks to impart a distinctive, balanced character.
