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".
"Straight from the bottle aromas of agave are the first things that you smell trailed by a slight dusty and earthy brininess. Subtle notes of baked Bartlett pear, warm cinnamon, vanilla and a delicate oak follow with a lingering dull white pepper finish. Upon first sip, pepper and sweet oaky barrel flavors are notable with a nuanced vanilla extract taste. Baking spice, salted caramel, and delicate citrus follow. In the end, the flavor comes back full circle to finish both sweet and spicy with a lingering black pepper note. Great spice and fruit flavors; smooth enough to sip while rich and complex enough for a great stirred after-dinner cocktail."
