Legend has it that before the Hispanic era, in what is now known as Jalisco, a group of Indians were looking for shelter from a storm and hid in an area full of Blue Agave.  By the hand of the Mayan God Mayahuel, a flash hit the maguey bush and it began burning for hours.  When Tlaloc the Rain God finally put out the fire, the aroma coming from the maguey bush was very enticing.  When one Indian tasted the plant, he passed it around to the others and the Agave plant and tequila became one of the most important treasures to the tribes of pre-Hispanic Mexico.   —The Tequila Correlejo web site.

Aged for 4 months in three different types of cask barrel; French Oak, American Oak and White Oak, this unique three cask reposado tequila has won double gold medals twice and three separate gold medals in international spirit competitions.  The Correlejo Reposado has a scent of sweet caramel with a thick mellow sweet flavor.  This tequila has a great mouth feel, and dry complexity and aftertaste.   Correlejo is a solid reposado tequila.

Hornitos Reposado Tequila

The Hornitos Reposado is unique in that it is aged in large barrels and rarely touches the wood for a reposado tequila leaving it light in color.  Mostly, the flavor of the oak and wood that liquors are aged in provide much of the character.  Surprisingly, the Hornitos Reposado has a good oak flavor.  With sweet notes and hints of oak the Hornitos has good mouth feel with a salty finish.

The Casa Noble Reposado is aged for 364 days in new but lightly charred French White Oak Barrels.  364 days is the maximum time a tequila can be aged to be labeled a reposado.  It’s also much more expensive to age as there are investment and storing costs, along with the angels’ share, the amount of liquor that evaporates from the barrel overtime.  The longer it ages, the less you have.   The Casa Noble Reposado Tequila is smooth, sweet with a thick mouth feel and great vanilla flavor.  This is an excellent reposado with a great smooth finish.
