Gran Centenario
Reposado Tequila

Category: Reposado Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Gold color. Aromas and flavors of vanilla yogurt nuts, lit honeycomb candle, smoked beef molé, and whiff of cigar smoke with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, amusing, medium-long finish that exhibits suggestions of milk chocolate bar, toasted meringue, honey roasted pineapple, pepper, and suede. A sophisticated sipping Tequila with great flavor and balance.

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.
