As such, Herradura Antiguo Reposado displays all the fire and zest of a fine blanco, but takes on some added complexity from its brief time in oak, while the company’s core Reposado is an altogether more toasty affair thanks to its 11 months in barrel. Don Julio Reposado is another good example of this ‘semi-añejo’ style.
A halfway house? Gran Centenario Reposado spends about six months in cask, giving a balance between the still powerful agave character with more evolved flavours. Think of Reposado a bit like golden rum: depending on the style, we may be in cocktail/mixing territory here, but the finest (not necessarily the oldest) reward contemplative sipping, too.
