Luna Malvada Tequila Reposado

Luna Malvada Tequila Reposado is 100% Blue Weber Agave from a newly rediscovered ancestral growing region, with a specialized process, from a small family-run distillery. Luna Malvada Reposado rests for 8 months in previously used red wine American oak.

Luna Malvada is the only Ultra-Premium Tequila from the newly-rediscovered ancestral growing region of the Blue Weber Agave, the Tropical Dry Forests of SW Jalisco, Mexico.  The rich, green, biodiverse fields produce a naturally-premium agave and specialized harvesting and processing methods produce a complex, flavorful, and smooth tequila.  Harvested only during the full moon cycle, when the plant is said to be healthiest and full of vitality, Luna Malvada’s ground-breaking terroir approach to tequila making produces a world class tequila that is like no other.

I am a fairly new tequila drinker, and when I read the review on here about this one I have to say I was hesitant to try it. But I really liked the different look of this tequila bottle so I was intrigued and had to find out for myself if what I read was true. So here is MY experience with Luna Malvada Reposado.

Aroma: Strong bold scent of caramel/honey.

Initial Taste: Spices and sweetness combined. Didn't burn my nose just smelling it, like some.

Body: It has a dry, smooth entry with the flavors of vanilla, zesty orange, spice and dried herbs.

Finish: A lasting sweet and smoky finish that lingers.

Overall I truly enjoyed this drink, pleasantly surprised and GLAD I tried it for myself. I will be putting this on my shelf to offer to friends and family. They did their homework and found a flavor that is truly amazing, and after some research... I found that they are the highest rated brand in the category. Glad I didn't go off of the recommendation of the other reviewer. I recommend this for a sophisticated drinker, not a tequila shooter. This one has class. So try it for yourself, it's the only way to know.

Luna Malvada is a new brand for me. In fact NOM 1572 is an entirely new distillery for me. Stainless steel oven, shredder roller and just a few brands being made there. As with many of the reviews, this was done blind.

Price: $40-45/bottle

Aroma: An odd nose on this one. A bit a crème brulee, but also a hint of harshness. Seems out of balance a bit.

Initial Taste: A vanilla sweetness that is overpowered, by a medicinal harshness.

Body: A pretty oily and thick body. The sweetness remains, but is out of balance with a spicy note and the similar medicinal notes.

Finish: A pretty short finish. The vanilla sweetness is still there and the peppery notes linger a bit as well. Still not a great combination of flavors.



Not a great drink overall. I always feel bad writing reviews like this, but I want to be honest about what I'm tasting and how it compares to its peers. With this one the flavors are out of whack and the harshness just isn’t pleasing on the nose or palate. I’d pass on this one if offered for free.
