Aged for eleven months in an American oak barrel, before being finished in a Cognac cask for three months, this offering from Tequila Herradura's Coleccion de la Casa line is offers an interesting, if subtle flavor profile. It is classified as a reposado tequila because of the eleven months of aging in American oak even though this tequila spent 14 months total in two different barrels, enough for an añejo designation.

    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

"A light, floral bouquet, with honeysuckle, orange blossoms, roasted agave, white pepper and dried plum. On the palate, this is light-bodied, with a nice agave flavor accented by orange marmalade, minerality, oak, burnt toast and dark chocolate. The finish bring out more white pepper, poblano chile, oak and raisins to end things before a final, astringent note of raw lumber lifts off the palate."
