Reposado Tequila

Category: Reposado Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Pale golden straw color. Savory aromas and flavors of bread and butter pickles, crudite, fire roasted guajillo pepper, and grapefruit zest with a satiny, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, compelling, medium-length finish manifesting accents of sassafras, panna cotta, and tomato leaves finish. A bright, pickle-y reposado with plenty of interest.

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.
