Exotico Tequila Reposado is made from 100% Blue Weber agave grown in the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico. The agaves are steamed for 16 hours in an autoclave oven and then placed in a mill (a "molino") to be crushed. After being distilled twice in a copper pot-still, this expression is then aged six months in white oak barrels previously used to age bourbon. It is bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"With coaxing, the somewhat shy nose betrays a whiff of oak, a suggestions of cooked agave and a hint of pepper. Gaining confidence, the agave asserts itself on the palate but in a sweeter, cooked form; the pepper, meanwhile, retreats behind a veil that masks it more and more into a reasonably lingering finish. Not especially distinctive, but good as a mixer. "
