El Alto Reposado Tequila

Category: Reposado Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Golden straw color. Aromas of clover honey, orange cream, caramel, and elote with a full body and a long grilled plantain, roasted poblano, mint, and grilled apricot finish. The barrel is more prevalent on the nose but the agave is there and the rich succulent flavors become more pronounced and delicately complimented by the maturation.

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.
