Hornitos Reposado Tequila




Notes: Hornitos Reposado is aged (rested) in American oak barrels (we suspect recycled Jim Beam barrels) for 2 months and is made from 100% agave- which is unusual for this this price- most of the tequila you find at this price (and certainly below) is NOT 100% agave but blended tequila- the stuff that all those college tequila stories are made of. Other versions are the Hornitos Silver and Hornitos Anejo.

Appearance: Light straw yellow, fairly pale, leaves a very thin even coat on swirling wth some legs forming.

First Impression: Not overly aromatic, almost a tired bouquet with sea salt and slightly antiseptic smell. Notes of that bitter waxy coating of agave lurk in the background.

Taste: Cilantro, alkali tang, black pepper, green peppers, slightly thick, waxy mouth feel; dry, somewhat bitter finish.

Drinks: Margaritas of course, and Tequila Sunrises. Cheap enough to use and not worry about. As a shot, it goes down with a burn but what are you expecting?
