The 1800 Reposado Tequila: Considered the First Premium Tequila

1800 reposado tequila The 1800 Reposado Tequila: Considered the First Premium TequilaBy Matt Goldstein

Made with 100% Blue Agave, the 1800 Tequila is named after the year in which tequila was aged in wood for the very first time, 1800.  When released in 1975, 1800 Reposado became the first premium tequila.  Reposado tequila’s are medium aged tequila’s, usually in American Oak barrels for 2-4 months which gives it a light brown color and sweet flavor.  Silver tequila’s are usually age about a month while the more premium Anejo Tequila’s are aged between 1-2 years.  While Silver’s seem to be the most popular tequila’s these days from the Patron trend, the Reposado’s and Anejo’s are what makes a unique, complex and full of flavor perfect for sipping neat.  The 1800 Reposado Tequila, while solid, is just that.  It’s not too bad but it’s not great either.  While we wouldn’t turn it down if offered, there are probably better Reposado’s for the price.

The 1800 Reposado Tequila Tasting Notes:

The 1800 has a sweet scent with a sweet syrupy flavor.  It’s smooth but lacks bite and complexity.  There is a good burn with an oak flavor and sweet, slightly dry finish.
