Alacrán Tequila unveiled the latest varietal joining its lineup of tequilas: Alacrán XA. An ultra-premium, extra añejo tequila, Alacrán XA uses 100 percent weber blue agave that is seven to 10 years old and harvested in the highlands of Los Altos in Jalisco, the company says. The tequila is matured for 40 months in American oak barrels that aged bourbon and offers notes of fruit and oak with a cognac finish that is dry, smooth, full-bodied and warm, it adds. Alacrán XA is available in select markets packaged in 750-ml glass bottles that have a suggested retail price of $59.99.
