San Matias Legado Tequila Reposado
San Matias Legado Tequila Reposado rests for 4 months in white oak and is produced at Casa San Matias de Jalisco.
Casa San Matías produces a diverse range of tequilas that includes its star product San Matías Gran Reserva, a tequila aged for three years and its main brand Pueblo Viejo in three varieties: White, Gold and Aged. However Carmen Villarreal has brought to the market other products that were conceived by her husband, “I took over the company 10 years ago and didn’t want to leave his projects behind so I continued them,” she says. To commemorate the company’s 120th anniversary, Casa San Matías introduced two new brands of 100 percent agave tequila, launched in 2006: Orgullo Pueblo Viejo, a tequila that spends 24 months aging in white oak barrels, and San Matías Legado, a rested tequila aged for four months.
"We are currently doing a renovation in all our social media, Tequila Legado initially only sold in a small area in Mexico and in limited production, that is why we had not advertised on our website, last year Total wine was interested to distribute it in the USA. Soon we will have the tasting notes and more information about this product on our website, thanks for your observation."

Tasted from a Riedel glass on 3/01/13. This was purchased at Total Wine and More for $22.00. This juice is just average overall. It is fine for margaritas. It has a distinct vanilla taste with a hint of caramel and spice. It has an above average taste of alcohol as well. It has a lasting after taste, but isn't totally pleasant. I'm partial to very smooth tequila, but this isn't in that class. I hope to taste very high end Casa Matias brands soon to compare. I know I've enjoyed their Pueblo Viejo Reposado very much. I was once told Pueblo Viejo, and thus Casa Matias, was the only woman-owned distillery in Mexico. Not sure if that's still true, but it IS notable. Salud.
