Artá Tequila Reposado

Aged for eleven months in American oak barrels, Artá Tequila Reposado delivers traditional reposado smoke with a softened finish of floral and vanilla notes.

Born from time-honored tradition and the passion to create an authentic, hand-crafted spirit, Artá is a truly singular tequila. Artá originates exclusively from a single estate in the birthplace of tequila itself---Arenal, Mexico---and is the unique art of an 11th generation ranching family and a 3rd generation master distiller. Made from 100% organic Weber Blue Agave matured for 8 to 10 years, each variety carries a consistency of flavor and an authenticity of character worthy of the Artá name. A distinctive, triangular bottle created by artisan hands from recycled glass transports the spirit of Artá’s origins to you.

Artá Tequila proudly uses 100% organic agave and recycled materials in its tequilas and packaging.

Artá Tequila – The art of tequila.

The Arta tequila bottle will grab your attention to be sure. Triangle shape, nice label and artsy presentation. It looks good on a bar, but I'm more interested (as always) how it sits on the palate.

Price: $40/bottle

Aroma: Almost no sweetness on the nose at all. Lots of herbal notes, black pepper and oak.

Initial Taste: Herbal agave and a hint of citrus an vanilla. Pepper is definitely present as well.

Body: A lighter body than expected. There's light vanilla and lots of pepper and herbal notes. An interesting combo.

Finish: A nice lingering finish of light vanilla and a lot of pepper and wood. Strange for a repo to still have this much pepper, but it is unique and stays with you.

I found myself surprised on the initial few tastes, but then wanting to go back for more and see what else I could find in this drink. There's some nice complexity and a spicy/peppery flavor that keeps your palate awake. All in all, this is a pretty nice tequila. I've started seeing discounted pricing in places (around $25-30) that makes it a worthy buy. I think that I'd probably stay away at the initial MSRP of $45-50. Regardless, if you like black pepper in your tequila, you'll want to check out Arta.
