Don Cosme Tequila Reposado

Don Cosme Tequila Reposado is 100% Blue Agave from Amatitán, Jalisco. Don Cosme Agaves are slow cooked in brick ovens for 48 hours, the juices are then extracted using a traditional tahona. Don Cosme Reposado rests for 3-11 months in white oak barrels.

Since 1907, Tequila Don Cosme's exquisite 100% Agave Tequila recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. Don Cosme maintains a traditional process delivering quality and prestige, and is a 100% Mexican company that focuses on satisfying the most demanding of palates.

Final review of the Don Cosme line. The entire line has been kind of a ho hum experience. I'd love to tell you that it's a gem for under $20, but the anejo and blanco haven't qualified for that designation. Hopefully the reposado can surprise me.

Aroma: Earthy/musty agave with a hint of vanilla.
Initial Taste: A very interesting mix of agave, anise and caramel.
Body: A great mix of agave, oak, vanilla and anise. Medium body with nice mouth feel.
Finish: A fairly mild, but very smooth finish. Fruity oak and anise are the lingering flavors with just a bit of sizzle from the pepper.

Don Cosme reposado is my favorite of the line. Nice complexity....not too sweet, but not too bitter either. The entire line is made with the traditional tahona wheel, which is surprising given the price point. After tasting this, I want to revisit the reposado's older and younger siblings. This one is a very nice buy for $20.
