Reposado Tequila

Category: Reposado Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Straw yellow color. Grassy, green, hoppy, herbal, candied aromas and flavors of dark cocoa mole sauce, lime, citrus, vanilla, roasted pineapple, and cotton candy with a round, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, nuanced, medium-length finish that exhibits overtones of sweetened italian peppers on an italian beef sandwich, grassy tones, and cucumber skins. A sweet, savory, and peppery stunner of a Reposado Tequila that hits all the right notes.

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.
