Straw yellow color. Aromas and flavors of lemon creme brulee with hints of freshly ground black pepper, caramel and nilla wafers, cinnamon roasted almonds, and toasted pine nut with a silky, dry medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish with suggestions of key lime pie, vanilla, cinnamon, and aloe, chocolate churro and salt, and grilled pineapple. Made for sipping, with rich smoky flavors and hints of caramel on the nose and palate.

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.
