Casamigos Tequila Reposado
Casamigos Tequila Reposado is 100% Agave produced at Productos Finos de Agave in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. This small batch, ultra premium Tequila is made from the finest, hand-selected Blue Weber Agaves, is slow cooked, ferments slowly with proprietary yeast, and rests for seven months in previously used whiskey barrels.
2013 - Actor George Clooney and restaurateur Rande Gerber (husband to supermodel Cindy Crawford) launch their own Tequila brand, Casamigos.
We worked on the creation of Casamigos with our master distiller in Jalisco, Mexico for years, and held many blind tastings until we knew we got it right. We’ve been drinking our tequila with friends and family for over five years now, say Clooney and Gerber.

The very last thing I expected was to give a glowing review to yet another Hollywood star's foray into the tequila business (I speak of George Clooney's Casamigos). it begins with a very lush and velvety nose of buttery caramel. A terrific mouthfeel, nice and full, with lovely notes of spearmint, cinnamon and spice. A medium-warm finish that definitely hangs around a lot longer than most, giving off notes of light spice, wood and sweet agave in the quite substantial after-finish. This is a unique and very delicious reposado. I recommend tequila aficionados look past the movie star hype and have a serious look at this brand. An excellent tequila!
I had passed up purchasing a bottle of this tequila once only because I was suspect about the celebrity backing and it was priced higher than other good brands. However, the other night I was in a restaurant and had an opportunity to have a try. So, for $10 I took the chance. The moment I put the drink to my nose, the aroma was wonderful, with it's subtle caramel notes. Initial taste was smooth and flavorful. The finish was just as pleasant. So needless to say, I was impressed and feel this was one of the best (if not the best) reposados that I have experienced. I feel it is worth paying extra for a tequila of the quality. I went back to the store and bought the bottle and am enjoying it now. I think the bottle has an old-time nostalgic look. Nothing fancy, but I like it. I would rate this a 94. Enjoy!
super good stuff
I bought this at Costco for $45. A while back. now I'm down to the last shots. Time for the review I'd say. At home... shot glass in hand. The aroma-nose did improve after the second sip.. Very smooth, Buttery, nice body and finish. And when I say nice I mean 94 pts nice. Very enjoyable. No woodyness . Infact it's pretty close to being a good anejo in body and flavor.You would impress anyone showing up with this stuff. To bad about the price. If it was 10 bucks less I would rate it higher but then the really good stuff is always expensive. but I can get stuff this good for less. then the Presentation is Blah so we get a 91
