Details

With its golden straw color, Excelliaâ„¢ Reposado reveals a complex nose mixing honey, toasted wood, mushroom, dried lavender, jasmine and violet notes. The nine months ageing in grand cru sauternes wine casks and cognac barrels provide a round and extensive mouthfeel with rich honey, cigar-box, and caramelized-agave/pumkin notes mixed with subtle rancio and orchard fruits. The finish is long and satisfying with spicy and earthy notes. Respecting the characteristics of a tequila from "Los Altos", Excelliaâ„¢ reveals stunning and innovative aromas thanks to its unique ageing. "With Excelliaâ„¢ Reposado each sip tells you a different story making it a superbly provocative, unique and a "grande cuvee" Reposado."
Jean-Sebastien Robicquet, Excellia Tequila

"This new tequila brand comes from 100 percent blue agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco — and then comes a twist: All the tequilas are aged in Sauternes and 20-year-old Cognac casks, a big twist vs. the usual old Bourbon barrels in which most tequila is aged.... exemplary"

...Spends nine months in oak. Big wood notes here, but it's tempered by some of the sweeter, citrus notes... Christopher Null, Drinkhacker.com 2011
