Fortaleza Tequila Reposado
About Fortaleza Tequila Reposado
750ml & 80 Proof
This Reposado has a beautiful vegetal, savory quality. It delivers a well-rounded flavor that lets the agave shine through the oak. The degree to which this is agave-forward will come as a welcome surprise given its aging. It's added character that you can taste.
"Tequila Fortaleza from Tequila, Mexico. This brand is everything that is right about craft spirits. Family brand, years of experience, the best ingredients, and prepared the right way." - Wink Report
Earthy cinnamon, caramel, butterscotch, cooked agave, anise, and citrus, including notes of olive and butter.
- You don't like to suggest something other than sipping, but this does make a too-good-to-be-true margarita
- Grapefruit and lime juice with Americano Cocchi Rosa, & Reposado. Top with a sprig of rosemary for an excellent Grapefruit & Rosemary
This Reposado starts with the exceptional Tequila Blanco, which is rested in American oak for 6-8 months. (Longer than you find for the typical Reposado, which tends to be only 3-5 months aged.)
Production methods are strictly old-world, as befits a distillery with this family history. Brick horno oven cooked, tahona stone crushed. Small wood vat for fermenting and distillation in copper stills. Finally aged in American oak for 6-8 months for a rewarding, silky, and totally balanced spirit.
Please drink responsibly. CA Residents: Proposition 65 Warning.
