Casa Maestri Reserva de MFM Tequila Reposado

Casa Maestri Reserva de MFM Tequila Reposado is 100% puro de Agave, and rests in oak casks for up to one year. This limited edition Tequila is bottled in a blue ceramic bottle with sandblasted logo.

Casa Maestri Tequila uses a carefully selected mixture of 50% Highland Agave and 50% Lowland Agave. Also, 50 percent of the Agave is cooked in old traditional brick/stone ovens, and the other half is cooked in stainless steel autoclaves.  Fermentation is very slow, with average time required of 72 hours. The final step is distillation which takes place in pot stills, also known as single batch slow distillation at relatively low (55%) alcohol content.

Destiladora Del Valle de Tequila (Casa Maestri) is a Tequila distillery located in the heart of Mexico's most prime agave growing and tequila production region:  Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico.

Casa Maestri combines the best of the old and new when it comes to Tequila production. They utilize traditional slow baking brick ovens and autoclaves to cook the blue agave hearts, and traditional mills (molinos) to extract the juices from the Agave. Casa Maestri ferments with natural occurring yeast, and distillation takes place in old fashioned pot stills. All water is processed through an ultra modern system of reverse osmosis, de-ionization, and ultra violet bacteria eliminating lights, followed by two types of filtration.

Initial Appearance: Ambar colored, average shade for a reposado.
Aroma: Sweet, buttery, citrus agave
Taste: Oak, pepper/spice, cinnamon, vanilla
Finish: Unexpected sweetness lingers on the front of the tongue, mellow, but with a little kick.

Bottle: Blue ceramic with sand blasted detail, excellent display piece.

Overall: A little on the pricy side, but worth it. Definitely top 5 all time Repos. 92/100

NOM 1438 has made a lot of really good budget tequilas. Los Azulejos and Casa Maestri are the premium lines from the distillery...let's see if Casa Maestri is worth the premium price

Aroma: Light aroma of cooked sweet agave, vanilla and a hint of light fruit.
Initial Taste: Cooked agave and vanilla. Almost a bit watery.
Body: Simple combination of agave, oak, vanilla and spices.
Finish: A medium-long finish with oak & chocolate being the most prominent. A decent finish, but nothing too noteworthy.

This is a decent tequila, but not too much to rave about. Thin bodied and a bit watery, but has a nice oaky agave linger at the finish. It’s fine, but I wouldn’t tell people to hurry out and buy it...especially not at the premium price. The bottle looks great, but hopefully you're shopping for good tequila, not a $65 bar piece.
