El Diamante del Cielo Reposado Tequila
El Diamante’s reposado is one day shy of añejo status; it is aged for 364 days in oak. This 100% blue agave is triple-distilled in small pot stills after steaming and fermentation. The tall, slender bottle is distinguished by a decorative gold background that amplifies the spirit's pale, golden color.
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 heat found in the Silver tequila from this brand is tamed here by the near-year of oak ageing; instead there's light vanilla, dried grass and brushy herbs. Some smoke develops on the palate, along with toasty agave and sharp pepper--all complemented by more vanilla and a touch of herbal honey. The finish appears hot in contrast to the entry."
