Don Julio Reposado 100% Agave Tequila (750ml)
Don Julio Tequila is named after its founder, Don Julio Gonzalez Estrada, one of Mexico's most renowned premium tequila makers. His 100% Agave Tequilas have been produced in the same way since 1942 and continue to be Don Julio's passion and masterwork. Double distilled and aged for eight months in oak, Don Julio Reposado is now available in Australia along with the highly rated 'Blanco'.
Tasting note: The understated bouquet keeps unfolding with time in the glass with evolving dill and caramel scents. The palate entry is mild, moderately vanilla-like and semisweet; the midpalate is long, biscuity sweet and only slightly dill-like. Pickle brine surfaces in the set finish. 38% Alc./Vol.
Rating: 90-95 points - www.wineenthusiast.com
Other reviews... Pale silvery golden amber color. Creamy custard, caramelized roasted pecans, and sweet brown spice aromas. A round, satiny entry leads to a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to full body of dried pineapple, flan, charred nuts, white pepper and spice flavors. Finishes with a powdered sugar, whipped cream, and talc fade. A delicate and sweet style for sipping on the rocks or cocktails.
