I was sent a bottle of the Hermosa Ultra Premium Reposado Tequila to review. I am a huge fan of reposado so I knew I would like it I just did not know how much. It could be my new favorite, and I am saying that as I have not had all the reposado tequila’s available. I do know that they aged it just enough, on the bottle it says over 2 months but does not say exactly how many months. The law is reposado tequila must be aged at least 2 months/60 days yet may not be aged over a year (as it would then fall into the añejo category). My own personal preference is a reposado that is aged long enough to enjoy with a full meal or an appetizer like chips and salsa, yet something that is drinkable on it’s own. Many times I want a shot of repo just on it’s own, and the Hermosa reposado brand is perfect, very well balanced lots of spice and fresh agave taste yet has all the qualities pulled from the barrel aging that make reposados so popular. This reposado is light in taste, yet once it is in your mouth there are many different flavors that come through, vanilla, oak, orange and citrus while the agave is still present. This is at the top of my favorites in the reposado category and for under $50 retail it is well worth every drop, extremely smooth, 10/10.
