Category: Reposado Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico

Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of roasted nuts and peppers in wax paper, chocolate citrus peels, epazote-pepper relish, and geranium with a supple, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a warming, breezy finish evoking accents of herb-bark tincture, pickled chiles, and vanilla almond milk. A savory, herbal Reposado for cocktails.

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.
