Compoveda — the home model of on-line tequila retailer SipTequila — beforehand existed solely as an additional anejo, aged 5 years in Napa crimson wine barrels. Over a yr in the past I had the great fortune to be a part of a spotlight group that examined three expressions of a brand new Compoveda launch, a reposado. These tequilas all spent various quantities of time in crimson wine barrels — Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon to be particular — and for the ultimate composition, the spirit spent 8 months in bourbon barrels and three months within the cabernet barrels. That’s an aggressive reposado, so now that the ultimate model of the tequila is out, let’s give it a whirl.

Actually spicy on the nostril, with notes of cinnamon and brown sugar — like cinnamon toast — with sweeter notes of nutmeg and butterscotch rising because the tequila’s aromatics construct within the glass. Peppery agave notes are current however restrained, with sweeter baking spice doing many of the speaking together with hints of pineapple and peach. Notes of crimson fruit and rhubarb on the end, then lingering allspice.

Aside from these ending parts. there’s not a lot of a way of crimson wine right here, and I bear in mind questioning if the samples we have been tasting throughout growth have been completed not in wine barrels however in rum casks, as a consequence of their important sweetness and tropical fruit notes. The general impression is nearer to anejo than reposado, which isn’t a slight however, maybe, a cautionary be aware for drinkers anticipating a milder expertise.

80 proof. NOM 1068. Reviewed: Batch #1.
