Casamigos Reposado Tequila
Casamigos // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Casamigos (loosely translated to "house of friends") is indeed the tequila brand created by George Clooney and Rande Gerber. The agaves are sourced from the Highlands of Jalisco and this reposado is aged for 7 months in reconditioned whiskey barrels and is bottled at 80 proof.
Tequila ReposadoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged from 2 months up to a year in barrels no larger than 20,000 L. Any type of wood is acceptable, although ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Reposado translates to "rested".

"The nose brings a slight smoked char and peanut-shell aroma with some vanilla maple and spiced barrel notes. The aroma is still bright and lively with scents of the agave. On the palate, there's a nice depth to the spice with a touch of a tobacco and leather and has a sweet, rich taste. The finish brings some pleasant peppery and bitter notes to bring the tequila to a close, but does finish on the sweet side. Enjoy neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail as this reposado is versatile."
