Suerte Reposado Tequila
Suerte // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Founded in 2012 by Colorado-based Laurence Spiewak and Lance Sokol, the double-distilled Suerte Tequilas are produced at a family-run distillery in the highlands of Jalisco. Following the distillery’s laborious traditional methods, the Suerte Reposado is aged for seven months in single-use Jack Daniels 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".
"The Jack Daniels barrels have imparted a nose of caramel, vanilla and subtle oak. On the palate, there’s butterscotch, honey and oak along with hints of Suerte’s signature vegetal notes of baked agave. The lingering finish offers more caramel, butterscotch and agave."
