El Jimador Reposado: A Sip of Sunshine in Every Bottle

El Jimador Reposado is a 100% agave tequila, meticulously crafted in the heart of Jalisco, Mexico, and aged for two months in American white oak barrels. This reposado tequila –  reposado meaning "rested" in Spanish – offers a smooth and inviting expression that perfectly bridges the gap between the vibrancy of a silver tequila and the depth of an aged añejo.

Aroma:

Pour yourself a glass of El Jimador Reposado and take a moment to appreciate the inviting aroma. You'll be greeted by a refreshing wave of agave, the tequila's foundation. Hints of vanilla and caramel peek through, courtesy of the time spent in oak barrels. A touch of peppery spice adds a subtle complexity, hinting at the spirit's warmth.

Taste:

The first sip of El Jimador Reposado delivers a burst of flavour that is both familiar and exciting. The crisp agave character takes centre stage, but it's beautifully balanced by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and caramel. The oak ageing introduces a touch of spice, like white pepper, that dances on the palate without overpowering the agave. Hints of citrus and minerality add further depth and intrigue to the flavour profile.

Body & Finish:

El Jimador Reposado boasts a medium body that feels smooth and luxurious on the tongue. The oak ageing contributes a subtle creaminess, while the agave maintains a lively presence. The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly, with a touch of warming spice and a final whisper of sweetness.
