Very nice Reposado. Fairly priced for a premium Tequila. Love the Agave stopper. Overall I would happily recommend to anyone looking for an upscale Tequila.

Finally found a bottle to try in Belgium of all places! Lovely Aroma of everything you would expect: agave, oak, vanilla, and lime! There are herbs in there but I can't pick it out. Taste is lovely as well, with honey and lime really standing strong. Smooth and a bit sweet. The oak flavour is faintly there and comes through more with the finish. A fresh delicious Reposado! Tasted in a bar in Belgium, 9 EUR for 20ml!

Strong but subdued agave taste, velvety and vegetal, oily with almost no burn...it’s literally the best I’ve had, better than the blanco, or on par with still strength

Agave, oak, and vanilla are present on the nose. The taste is oak ip front and agave with caramel. The finish is not as smooth as I had hoped. It was pepper and alcohol.

Well rounded flavor that lets the agave shine through the oak. Aged a bit longer than I generally like for a repo, so I was pleasantly surprised that it is still agave forward. Seems like Guierllmo has found a sweet spot with his aging. Well done

Soft on the nose, with a vanilla and floral hints. Agave, butter and light citrus on the tongue, with a soft oily agave and light pepper finish. Not too sweet, no additives, subtle and easy: Just amazing. Lot 62.

A lot of alcohol on the nose. Flavor-wise, it is very tasty with an undetectable (for me, at least) taste on the finish.

Fruit and caramel on the nose, taste is baked agave with a touch of wood and brine, nice medium to long finish. A smooth, tasty, pleasantly spicy sipper.

vanilla and caramel notes. Sweet but not as desert-like as the riazul. Very smooth finish

Tasted in a Riedel glass at La Fortaleza following a tour of the distillery and grounds. Takes the absolutely stunning Blanco and rests it enough to add some mellow oak, vanilla and spice. Definitely one of the top two or three reposados I've ever had!

Fortaleza Reposado – “Too Legit to Quit”

Just like a hipster needs a fixie bike, any serious tequila connoisseur needs to have “Forty Repo” on their bar. That’s because this tequila is completely legitimate, made the super old-school way, and delicious to boot. Let’s be honest, this tequila is “

5 Essential Tequilas for a Well-Stocked Bar

Some people, when talking about essential bottles for a well-stocked bar, leave out tequila (unlike, say, bourbon or scotch). Some people think that the only thing tequila is good for is making margaritas. Some people are wrong.

La Fortaleza Distillery Visit

Yesterday I visited the La Fortaleza distillery. This tiny distillery makes 100% tahona tequila, in the heart of the city of Tequila in the Lowlands.
