Alma de Agave Tequila Reposado

Alma De Agave Reposado is a six month aged Tequila matured in naturally treated oak barrels giving it pure and rich agave flavor. A smooth spirit that can be enjoyed neat, accompanied with Sangrita, or mixed to create a delicious Tequila cocktail.

Alma de Agave Tequila is produced with the finest Blue Weber Agave, cultivated from the shores of Lake Chapala, a region of Mexico known for the quality of its maguey plants, rich in minerals with a unique and distinct character.

By following our old family recipe of slow distillation and filtration, the results are beyond the smoothest tasting tequila. We have also taken it a step further of chilling our tequila to remove any oils and grease derived from distillation, allowing us to protect and hold its taste, color and flavor at any weather or environment.

Alma de Agave is bottled in hand-molded and blown glass by true artisans who hand-craft each individual bottle. It is topped with 100% Caoba wood and natural Corteza tree cork treated with parafina to protect the tequila's color and aromas.

This was one of the first bottles I ever bought when I was discovering my love for tequila. It had since been buried behind many others and I finally dug it out and had no recollection of what it tasted like. Maybe I fell in love all over again...

Aroma: Agave, Honey, Light Citrus, Vanilla
Initial Taste: A very sweet entry, but it's all agave and oak. There's not vanilla/caramel sort of tone to it. Just pure agave sweetness and a touch of earthy tones.
Body: A nice think body for a reposado. It coats the glass and the mouth very well. Agave, oak and berry type fruit are the flavors...again with a hint of earth. Very well rounded.
Finish: The nice finish that I expect from a good reposado. Smoothness of the aging is there, but a nice peppery and spicy finish that lingers around allowing to taste and digest all of the complimentary flavors. A very nice ending to a well rounded tequila.

I've seen this around $30 many places and it's a very good buy at that price. The bottle looks good, the juice inside is very good. Just a good all around reposado. I'm glad I found this one after a couple of years of being buried.

I bought a bottle of this with no prior knowledge. I saw it in a local store, thought the bottle looked cool, and purchased the repo for $25. I realize this is coming out to a very high rating, but this repo has a lot of characteristics that I like.

The bottle is very attractive, and the color is fairly dark compared to a lot of repos. I think my girlfriend described this tequila best as 'hearty'. The nose is fairly earthy, but very rich in the smell of sweet cooked agave. There is a slight burn in the nose, but it contributes to the overall strength of this spirit.

The taste is like the nose, very heavy sweet agave, with a bit of earthiness. In a snifter, there are very visible, long, dripping legs that just don't quit. There is no burn in the taste on the front on the tongue, and a very heavy, oily body.

The finish is very smooth, with only minimal burn, and a lingering taste that coats the entire mouth. It is not an offensive taste, but definitely not for wussies. If lumberjacks drank tequila, this would be it, due to the heavy body, flavor, and taste. If you like a strong pure tequila taste, you could sip on this all night. If you have a lighter palate, it would get old after a glass or two.

Again, this has a lot of things that I like, thus the high rating. And for the price, this is pound-for-pound a great purchase. It reminds me why I like tequila.
