Review #1972 | Tequila Review #28

Distiller: La Altena

Bottler: La Altena

Brand: Tapatio


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: 8 Months

Nose: Rich and sweet on the nose, peach, pepper, some soil and honey are quite prominent. Lightly fruity, a hint of cinnamon, faint oak.

Taste: Rich on the palate. Oak is pretty noticeable at first – sweet brown sugar, vanilla, toffee, honey. This pairs nicely with the agave character, toasty, earthy notes like slate, minerality, some pepper and a bit of ash.

Finish: Medium finish. A bit of spice, char and pepper on the tongue. Faint bitterness on the back palate, pairs nicely with the sweet cream, fruits and barrel notes on the palate.

Overall: Tapatio Reposado is one of my favorite reposados and for good reason. Balancing barrel and agave nicely, this expression is an ideal sipper, or premium cocktail ingredient.

Thanks for reading!
