Tequila Esperanto Reposado

Tequila Esperanto Reposado is elaborated with great dedication and under strict quality procedures, in one of the oldest and traditional distilleries of Tequila, Jalisco well-known as "El Llano".

We carefully select the blue agave, "Tequilana Weber", and after cooking we initiate the extraction of the nectar, and then our Tequila is submitted under a process of triple distillation. Afterwards the Tequila rests in oak barrels, until reaching the necessary aging, containing a magnificent body and bouquet.

Esperanto Tequila Reposado is rested in white oak barrels, acquiring a delicate touch of wood flavor that denotes the quality of our fine Tequila, in both body and bouquet.

The design of the case is hand crafted by the reknown mexican artist Genaro Pimientel.

I picked up a bottle of Esperanto Reposado the last time I was in Mexico. The great looking bottle caught my attention and I had never seen it in the states before that either. I hope that the contents are half as good as the bottle itself.

Aroma: A light cooked agave with a lot of vanilla and butterscotch. A really light hint of clove and cinnamon as well.
Initial Taste: A very light initial taste with faint notes of agave and vanilla. Not a whole lot there.
Body: A pretty thin bodied reposado...almost a bit watery. Slight flavors of oak, vanilla and spice compliment an agave presence that is a bit lacking.
Finish: Strangely enough, the finish is pretty decent. A nice linger of pleasant vanilla/butterscotch flavors, oak and hints of spice. Good, but not great.

Overall, this is a pretty average tequila in a spectacular bottle. It's not bad, but it certainly does not merit a $50+ price. I would say that having a bottle of any expression on your bar is not a bad idea because of the beautiful workmanship, but if you are looking for something strictly for the contents, you can really do better than this for $50+.

A very kind customer recently invited us to open his bottle and sample it. I had little intention of opening mine, preferring instead to display the superb bottle. In a Reidel glass it presented as follows:

Colour is a very pale gold. Nose is quite inviting, with mild agave, olive, herbals and wood. A slightly sharp attack with an initial very brief flash of sweetness quickly turns bitter. Bitterness and alcohol dominate a thin body which offers little agave. Finishes moderately with persistent bitterness and alcohol burn.
Clearly, the magnificent bottle is the strong point of this reposado and the only reason I have it in my collection. The $65 bottle price is simply not supported by the contents - it is "eye-candy" plain and simple... a below-average reposado in a stunning package.
