Tequila Código 1530 “Origen” Extra Añejo

This private-label tequila from the quaint town of Amatitán, once available only to an intimate group of families in Mexico, has just been released in the U.S. Aged six years (surprisingly long for tequila) in French oak that previously held Napa Valley reds (rather than the usual whisky), it’s richly spiced with creamy custard notes. $260 at Hazel’s; 1955 28th St., Boulder; 303-447-1955; hazelsboulder.com.
