    Distilled 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".

Tasting Notes

"The six months in a barrel is a dramatic change from their Silver expression; rounder notes of caramel and vanilla last much longer before white pepper rounds out the finish. There's also a fair amount of crystallized honey. Overall, not near as spicy as the Silver but evolves nicely overtime."
