An unbelievably good Reposado tequila, made from Organic agaves which are grown for over 9 years before slow cooking in traditional ovens. The fermentation is done using the company's secret blend of yeasts, and then comes distillation followed by triple filtration. It is aged in very fine oak barrels, and is bottled in these tall, handsome decanters which are hand-painted and numbered by local artisans. Clase Azul's incredible Reposado has been awarded Gold medals by the Beverage Testing Institute and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Nose: Roasted tomato, pomelo, dry earth and a slowly developing note of cedar.
Palate: Vanilla-y and earthy agave notes. A touch of tropical fruit sweetness and honey.
Finish: Subtle mineral notes paired with soft oak warmth. Creamy later on.
