Tapatio Tequila Reposado, Jalisco, Mexico (750ml)
38% ABV. Aged 4-6 months in American white oak barrels, previously used in ageing Bourbon.
Appearence ~ Pale straw yellow color; luminous, with golden and slightly greenish tones. Medium bodied due to its lower alcoholic content.
Aroma ~ Fruity, intense cooked Agave, apple, pear, vanilla and caramel, slightly smoky. White pepper comes in a subtle form. Allowed to breath it becomes creamy with hints of butter. Spices such as clove and sandalwood.
Taste ~ The sweetness of the cooked Agave flavors predominate; herbal, pepper, slightly smoked with notes of caramel, cocoa, vanilla and nuts (walnut, peanut, hazelnut). A very soft & smooth, yet spicy finish.
Comments ~ A very well balanced tequila between the spicy and the sweet flavors. Perfect for a Margarita cocktail, but also to enjoy neat or on the rocks.
