Siembra Azul 10th Anniversary Reposado Tequila
Siembra Azul // Jalisco, Mexico
To celebrate 10 years of business, Siembra Azul founder David Suro decided to tap his playful side and combined a reposado (aged between 2 - 12 months) with a touch of extra añejo (aged 3 - 5 years). All the agave used was between 5 - 8 years old at harvest, distilled in a combination of copper and stainless steel pots as well as column stills. All of the distillate was aged in new Missouri white oak. Pushing the boundaries of tequila, this rare limited edition was created at the family distillery of Feliciano Vivanco y Asociados.
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".

"While it's quite rich for a reposado, the oak influence does not completely detract from the natural agave flavors. Exotic spices are at the forefront with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, cocoa powder and allspice. Vanilla, caramel and fruity flavors of apricot, grapefruit peel, and lime give over to mineral richness and fresh agave notes. All-in-all a chewy, yet nuanced tequila that's a real treat to sip."
