Olmeca Altos Reposado Tequila: A Deep Dive into a Mexican Masterpiece

The world of tequila can be a confusing one, filled with unfamiliar terms and varying qualities. But for those seeking a smooth, agave-forward reposado that offers excellent value, Olmeca Altos Reposado stands out as a top choice. Hailing from Los Altos, a region known for its high-quality agave cultivation, this tequila delivers a taste experience that's both inviting and complex.

A Look at Olmeca Altos Reposado's Production

Olmeca Altos takes pride in its commitment to traditional methods. They use only 100% blue weber agave, hand-selected at peak maturity for the most flavourful expression. The agave hearts are then slow-cooked in brick ovens, a process that unlocks the plant's natural sweetness. Following fermentation with a proprietary yeast strain, the tequila is double distilled in small copper pot stills. Finally, Olmeca Altos Reposado is aged for a minimum of six months in ex-American whiskey barrels, allowing it to mellow and develop its signature character.

Tasting Olmeca Altos Reposado: A Sensory Journey

Colour: Olmeca Altos Reposado boasts a beautiful pale gold hue, a testament to its time spent in whiskey barrels. This colour hints at the subtle oaky notes that complement the agave's natural character.

Aroma: On the nose, Olmeca Altos Reposado presents a delightful harmony of aromas. The initial impression is one of fresh agave, with hints of citrus and peppery spice. As the tequila opens up, subtle notes of vanilla, caramel, and a touch of oak emerge, hinting at the influence of the ageing process.

Palate: The first sip of Olmeca Altos Reposado reveals a smooth and inviting texture. The agave flavours come to the forefront, offering a sweetness that is neither cloying nor overpowering. Hints of citrus and peppery spice dance on the tongue, adding a touch of complexity. The influence of the whiskey barrel becomes more apparent on the mid-palate, with subtle notes of vanilla and oak adding depth and warmth. The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly, leaving behind a touch of sweetness and a subtle peppery warmth.

  • Citrus: Hints of lime and grapefruit
