Hearing a lot about Hermosa Tequila, I purchased a bottle of the Hermosa Ultra Premium Reposado Tequila and decided to add a review. I am a huge fan of reposado so I knew I would find something I liked about it. After the first sip 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 more than two months yet under a year- the exact time it goes into the bottle is more about taste then time. 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 fresh agave taste 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.

I had the opportunity to try this new tequila that will be out later this month. Wow, I have tasted many tequila brands but this tequila was so smooth I ended up drinking most of the bottle. This is an ultra premium silver tequila that is very drinkable and hang-over free, no impurities and made from 100% Agave. They said they will be out with a reposado and añejo soon as both are in barrels right now.
