Slivery straw color. Aromas and flavors of banana chips, canned pineapple, green papaya, lime, and peanut in sesame oil, and thai basil with a satiny, lively, dry medium body and a seamless, nuanced, medium-long finish with notes of pad thai with mild peppers, coconut butter with lime and salt, white pepper, and honey comb. With just a hint of oak to soften the Spirit, beautiful tones of rich, complex, agave abound in this reposado.

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.
