Brilliant clear golden straw color. Mild, inviting aromas of olive, cheese, herb custard, and chocolate peanut with a soft, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, engaging, cheery honeyed yams, chalk, and delicate pepper finish. A lovely, refined sipper.

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.
