Product Description

91 Points – Tequila.net

 

Reposado is aged 6-8 months in Tennessee oak barrels and bottled in a rustic finished glass to give more of an antiqued look to match the pale amber-gold appearance. The nose exhibits creamy notes of vanilla and caramel, along with orange zest, cocoa, and spices.

 

The taste begins with a short agave bite, which quickly gives way to long-lasting layered flavors of light citrus, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, cashew nuts, black pepper, and baking spices. The finish is long, warm and delicious. Well-balanced, with a silky body, Peligroso Reposado makes delicious cocktails and is a remarkably easy sipper.

 

Peligroso (Spanish for “Dangerous”) is a 100% WEBER Blue Agave Tequila, grown and harvested at the “El Viejito” distillery in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Originally founded in 1937, “El Viejito” recently completed a new modern and efficient distillery, representing their commitment to social and economic development as well as the environment, as El Viejito is currently in the process of obtaining a “clean industry” certification. 

 

Peligroso’s agave is cultivated in red volcanic soil and harvested at the peak of ripeness. After harvesting, extra time and care is taken to cut away the bitter center cone of the agave plant, further enhancing the quality and flavor of the finished tequila. Peligroso’s agave is then steamed in traditional brick ovens for up to 3 days, and distilled in copper and stainless pots to a unique 84 proof, or 42% abv. The higher concentration of alcohol indicates that less water is used to dilute the tequila to its bottling strength, resulting in a richer, more luxurious, and more flavorful spirit.

 

After distillation, Peligroso is aged to perfection in white oak whiskey barrels from Tennessee. Each and every batch is tasted by Peligroso’s chief taste master to guarantee its outstanding quality before it is bottled, corked, and numbered by hand, to certify its authenticity. Peligroso is also the first brand to offer three separate types of glass to distinguish the unique character of each type of tequila.
