Milagro Reposado Tequila
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Produced from 100% Highlands-grown blue agave, Milagro's triple-distilled reposado is packaged in an attractive, shaded-copper bottle. The spirit's own color is pale-straw despite the spirit's ageing for six months in American oak whiskey barrels.
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".
"Milagro's Reposado offers less heat and agave on the nose than their Silver but punches up the roasted-agave sweetness. The pickle-barrel funk reappears, too, even more aggressively, but vanilla and butterscotch-y caramel fight back. The spirit finishes with some returning heat and spice and a farewell hint of bitterness. Not really an improvement over the silver, but good at the price."
