Named in honor of the master tequila harvesters, the Jimadores, who cut each agave heart (the piña) by hand with a razor sharp coa, El Jimador Reposado is a value brand from Casa Herradura.

The tequila starts by roasting the piñas in a clay oven, double-distilling the spirit and then placing the new-make spirit in American oak bourbon barrels for two months to rest.

Tasting Notes

"Notes of cooked agave, light oak and vanilla are joined by a slight hint of baked cherry pie on the nose. On the palate, this medium-bodied tequila coats the tongue with pleasant vanilla and caramel flavors complemented by more fruit notes, especially cherry and strawberry. Light oak and cinnamon notes and a touch of earthiness add to the complex flavor profile. It presents a medium length finish, with alcohol, white pepper and agave appearing initially before a quick hint of agave nectar and cherry finish things off."
