Herradura Reposado Tequila
Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
With the agave hearts roasted in traditional clay ovens, and fermented using only the local wild yeasts native to the casa, Herradura Reposado is aged after distillation in American oak barrels for 11 months to allow the flavors of this tequila to mature.
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".
"This light golden tequila offers up classic aromas of agave, vanilla, and caramel along with a mild hit of alcohol burn and light notes of orange peel and cedar. On the palate, this is a pleasantly medium bodied tequila, lightly coating the tongue and showcasing a mélange of spice notes, light oak and agave along with vanilla and a slight earthy flavor. The finish is light, with more baking spice flavors and vanilla before ending with a very pleasant agave note."
