Excellia Reposado Tequila Tasting Notes
100% Pura de Agave
40% Alcohol – 80 proof
Taste: Dryness. Bit of perfume. Sort of flat without lingering depth except for the faint hint of perfume. Nice agave, but only holds on for brief length of time. Heat, but not burn. Citrus peel such as orange with bitters. Faint touch of mango. Dryness comparable to taste of raw banana peel – little tart, dry, sharp. Agave grows with each sip.
Possibly meant for straight serve or on the rocks enjoyment. Cocktails might benefit with inclusion of egg white for mellowing effect and vanilla liqueur or bitters assortment such as peach or chocolate. Doesn’t seem like good fruity drink spirit. Nice sipping, yet there are definitely others more satisfying for lush sipping neat or on the rocks.
