We acquired the brand new reposado just for evaluate. Hopefully we’ll carry you protection of the opposite relaunched expressions down the highway.
Very similar to the outdated model of the tequila, this reposado spends 364 days in French white oak, placing it on the cusp of anejoness. Just like the earlier expression, this tequila pulls no punches on the subject of expressing its agave core. Sharp and peppery on the nostril, however undercut by peach and orange fruit notes, the tequila develops slowly to supply a milk chocolate character that layers in additional hints of sweetness. The palate is sort of spicy — toasted almonds layered with cinnamon and allspice — with greener, pepper-heavy notes constructing on the tongue.
