It’s An Aphrodisiac

Finally getting a chance to celebrate our nineteenth Valentine's Day! Staying home chill in' with the Grand Love Extra Añejo Tequila. The Grand Love comes in beautiful red heart glass, standing on a gorgeous pewter base. Its's made from 100% blue agave, and aged four years in double roasted white oak barrels. This XA Tequila drinks more like an aged whisky, so we are enjoying it in the single malt whisky glass. It tastes less of agave and much more of caramel and vanilla. This tequila would pair really well with flan, or a nice tres leches cake. #ValentineCheers everyone! @jeff_nlv #bartender #bartenders #love #bartenderlove #vegaslife #vegasbartender #tequila #cheers #tequilacheers #grandlovetequila #tequilalover #blueagave #añejo #extraañejo #jalisco #mexico #riedel #vinum #singlemalt #vinumsinglemalt #collector #riedelcollector #tequilacollector #martinmixology #lv_barman #blessed #grateful #sparkle
