Tequila Jarro Viejo Reposado

Jarro Viejo Tequila Reposado - Jarro Viejo 100% Agave Tequila is produced at La Barranca Distillery, located in the Highland Region of Tepatitlan, Jalisco, known as the "Land Rich in Tradition".  From the field to the distillery our split Agaves are then placed into brick ovens for several hours until they are cooked to perfection.  The distinctive flavor characteristic of our Tequila is attained by our specialized method of steaming, modern extraction method, filtration, fermentation, double distillation and aging in new white oak barrels.

Tequila Jarro Viejo Reposado rests in white oak barrels for 11 months. This light amber Tequila offers maple aromas, a light oak and honey body, and finishes with hints of cinnamon and green apple.

Jarro Viejo Reposado, NOM 1435. This spirit has a clean, golden/yellow color with a moderate agave & slightly alcohol nose. I first detected flavors of spicy cinnamon which later accompanied cherry & hints of vanilla. This light-medium body tequila enabled the cherry essence to continue through to a nice open, moderately long finish. Jarro Viejo is relatively smooth with an enduring warm & glowing sensation. This tequila drinks more like a blanco than a reposado. It lacked any of the aging attributes associated with the rested classification. However on the other hand, it is a very flavorful & enjoyable tequila well worth the $24.95 price tag. B/B+.
