Double Distilled in Jalisco Mexico, Dos Lunas Tequila offers three varieties of tequila: Silver, Reposado and Añejo. We’ve done the unaged and the oldest age, now it’s time to get a taste of the middle brother: Reposado. This Reposado will cost roughly $55, still less than that of a few Silver competitors of less quality.
Initially, you’ll notice its light copper toned coloring as if their silver got a little tan to it. The scents quickly climb through the air and tickle your nose, inviting you to smell its glories. The smells of caramel, vanillas and slight hints of cookie and you’re on the road to the Dos Lunas Reposado Tequila nose.
The taste? Light and smooth with a small spicy long lasting finish. The Reposado has a buttery oaken flavoring which obviously contributes to its smooth impact on the palate. While you’re going to get a bit of numbing alcohol feelings on the tongue, the vanilla and oak takes the edge off any potential heat from the alcohol; this isn’t just a mixing tequila my friends. The Reposado works well as a sipping tequila which translates to a smooth subtle cocktail mixing tequila.
It wouldn’t be fair to compare a Reposado to an Añejo because their a different beast, but comparing this Reposado to its Silver sister, you’ll probably have some of the same realizations I’ve have found: the Reposado’s maturity and barrel age takes a bit off the slightly more sweet/sour Silver while adding even more complexities to the spirit.
The relaxing flavors tend to bring you closer to a warm candy or dessert instead of the harsh bitter bite of a mixto tequila (51% Agave). Dos Lunas Reposado is a 100% Blue Agave tequila with lots of sweet notes to sing. You’re going to have a lot of choices in Tequila, the complexities in Dos Lunas Reposado is telling a story, do you want to listen?
