Rudo Tequila Reposado

Rudo Tequila Reposado will win you over! Aged up to one year in American white oak, Rudo Reposado Tequila is the perfect blend of 100% Blue Agave and the characteristics of previously used bourbon barrels.

Rudo is 100% Blue Agave Tequila produced by artisanal methods in Jalisco's Highlands. Carefully elaborated at the family-run distillery, Rudo Tequila offers a perfect combination of spectacular presentation and superior taste. To pay homage to Rudo's character, this Tequila boasts bold and unexpected flavors, a real tribute to Blue Agave spirits.

Rudo is one of the main heroes of Lucha Libre - combative art form with elements of melodrama, high-flying athletics, comedy, suspense, and intrigue. Appearing in red mask, Rudo is a wrestler who does not respect the rules of Lucha libre or his fellow wrestler. He is considered the "bad" guy or a "heel" and is willing to win by any means necessary even if it means cheating or brown-nosing the referee. Rudo’s wrestling is not as refined as Tecnico’s. Unlike the spectacular aerial maneuvers and complicated techniques, which técnicos are known for, Rudo makes greater use of brute force - hitting, lifting and dropping an opponent. While Rudo’s moves are rougher and less elaborate, he is not to be taken lightly. It is always fun to watch Rudo using his shear strength and trickery to get the better of his opponent.

saw this in the store for $26.99, caught my eye so figured i'd try it.
as i drank it while on vacation i didnt have the time to really "official" taste it, but i will say you probably wont regret buying it.
it has a very floral nose, one of the best noses I've smelt. Smells like a fresh bouquet.
the initial taste has no bite, mild sweetness
dont remember noting much from the body or the finish, but i thoroughly enjoyed this tequila. For the price, its hard to beat, this would be my go-to if they sold it where i live!

body is cool, maybe a little tacky, but hey i like it.

I've become a big fan of the tequilas that I've tasted from NOM 1467. From the affordable, but upscale expressions of Arrogante to the few that I've had from the Tecnico line as well. This is my first try of any of the Rudo tequilas. From what I was told, this line was supposed to be a bit more on the earthy side with more plant essence rather than the more delicate and desserty flavors in the Tecnico line. All I know is that I'm excited...

Price: $30/bottle

Aroma: A raw agave nose with hints of citrus and vegetal notes.

Initial Taste: The earthy agave notes are present right off the bat. The vegetal sweetness is there as well.

Body: A nice mouthfeel with an oily body. The agave/peppery notes combine with the earth to make for a really potent flavor.

Finish: A long finish with a nice mix of earthy agave and pepper linger. Just the hints of vegetal and sours notes hang around as well to make it interesting.

For the money, this is a great buy. Big and bold flavors with a real vegetal and earthy agave presence. With the Rudo & Tecnico lines, they created a little something for everyone. Rudo for the earth/gritty/peppery tequila fans and Tecnico will satisfy those looking for a sweet after dinner sipper. What it tells me is that the people behind this brand know how to craft a tequila from start to finish. If you see the NOM 1467 on the label, you can expect good things...just make sure that you do your research ahead of time. Salud!
