Tequila Chamucos Reposado Especial
Chamucos // Jalisco , Mexico
Tequila Chamucos began as a side project between friends and is now a fully formed brand. The agave is harvested at between 8 - 10 years and roasted in an autoclave, bound for stainless-steel column-distillation. The reposado is aged 7 months in ex-bourbon barrels and packaged in hand-blown glass. Note: The original box is worth seeking out to play with the cardboard cutouts.
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 not much is going on with the blanco expression, the force is strong with this one. The nose has an aroma of freshly-laid pavement with stewed agave notes. On the palate, golden apple and pear share the stage with sweet floral notes that are reminiscent of Earl Grey Tea. The finish is hot and somewhat pepper-spicey, though it is tempered by the complexity of the other flavors and a touch of charcoal smoke. "
