El Tesoro
Reposado Tequila

Category: Reposado Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Clear light gold color. Vegetal, herbal, medicinal aromas and flavors of Dry ocean grass, hay, straw, roots and drying vines, pineapple bread, and rhubarb with a glycerous, medium body and a tingling, interesting, brisk finish that exhibits accents of grapefruit and arugala, earl grey tea, jasmine tea, well worn leather, and maduro tobacco. A Reposado with intensity and character; the oak is right at its peak of complexity without losing the agave.

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.
