Tequila Ocho Reposado "La Latilla" 2015
Tequila Ocho // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
The "La Latilla" rancho slopes gently to the east which provides full afternoon sun exposure. The agaves were harvested in late 2014 and early 2015 so this bares the 2015 vintage date. Aged 7 years at harvest, the agaves had average sugar content of 32%, higher than usual. The tequila was aged in used, worn ex-American whiskey barrels.
