Tequila Ocho Single Estate Reposado 2014

SKU 898627001315


Tequila Ocho Reposado is rested for 8 weeks and 8 days, just slightly longer than the minimum standard to qualify as a Reposado. Like all aged expressions of Ocho, aging occurs in very neutral and worn barrels. These barrels were originally used for American Whiskey, however they have been used for other Tequilas made by Carlos Camarena 7 or 8 times before Ocho is matured in them. In some cases, these barrels are over 25-30 years old.

Wine EnthusiastThe aroma on this single-estate Tequila is reminiscent of a very lightly peated whiskey, mingling smoke and pepper with a light caramel note. The flavors tend toward custard and agave sweetness, spiked with pepper and mint. Earthy, smoky and peppery notes accelerate on the long finish. Light, silky feel.
