Review: Vida Tequila Reposado

We did the Blanco. We did the Anejo. Now it’s time for the final frontier, Vida Tequila’s Reposado bottling.

This tequila, aged a relatively lengthy six months in barrel before bottling, offers a quiet nose that is mostly sweeter notes. At first sip, it evokes gentle notes of caramel flan, melding burnt sugar with a dense creaminess. As it evolves on the palate, peppery agave comes to the fore, but it’s held in check by the sweetness, which turns toward notes of banana and a little milk chocolate.

All told, it’s got spice, it’s got sweetness, it’s got moments of brilliance, but mixes well while also drinking well on its own. A very well made reposado.

80 proof.

Update 2018: Retasted after packaging was updated, with similar tasting notes and rating. See new packaging at right.

    This is another good aged tequila that tastes good in margaritas or straight with sucking a lemon after the shot or mixed with other types of drinks!!!!
