Rich light gold color. Creamy aromas and flavors of spicy caramelized nuts, pistachio sundae, toasted meringue, and beeswax with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a peppery, medium-length finish revealing overtones of pepper roasted nuts, chili powder, and wet limestone. A lovely peppery, nutty Reposado for cocktails or with cigars.

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.
