Light gold color. Fruity aromas and flavors of peach cobbler and granola, pistachio gelato, macadamia nut cookie, and floral honey with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-to-long finish with accents of spiced nuts, sandalwood, honey roasted peppers, and incense ash finish. A delicate, fruity reposado that will be versatile.

Reposado ("rested") Tequila is aged in wooden tanks or casks for a legal minimum period of at least two months, with the better-quality brands spending three to nine months in wood. It can be either 100% agave or mixto. Reposado Tequilas are the best-selling Tequilas in Mexico.
