Partida Single Barrel Reposado Tequila
Partida // Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
Partida Single Barrel Reposado was first announced in January 2020. For this limited edition release, thirty barrels were selected by Partida's Maestro Tequilero José Valdez. Each bottling has been aged for a minimum of 6 months in white American oak with a medium char. Additionally, three tasting profiles were selected amongst the barrels so the purchaser of the barrel will be able to choose from ligero (light), medio (medium), and intenso (intense) flavor profiles.
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".

"Partida's 'medio' single barrel is a pleasant and mouth-filling reposado. Clean, custard-y agave notes on the nose are paired with a briny and vegetal background. The spirit is creamy in texture and driven by the barrel in its flavors with toasted nuts and brown sugar setting the tone. A nice spiciness emerges in the finish to add some complexity. "
