DeLeón Reposado was launched in November 2014 and is part of the brand's ultra-premium line of tequilas. The brand is co-owned by Diageo and rapper/entrepreneur, Sean "Diddy" Combs. Distilled from 100% blue weber agave from the Los Altos region of Jalisco, this reposado benefits from resting in both American oak and French oak casks.

Cask TypeAmerican Oak and French Oak
"The nose reveals some classic tequila notes with vegetal agave qualities; while still distinct, they are muddled a little bit with the oak. After a few minutes, buttery turnips becomes the dominant aroma. The palate shows a medium-bodied tequila with some sweet wood notes mingling with the agave. On the back palate, the tequila shows vanilla and magnolia flavors. The finish is long and sweet."
