Introducing Reposado from XXX Tequila

XXX TequilasWe hadn't heard of XXX Tequila until recently, but apparently they've been around long enough to create a Reposado. As you know, Reposado Tequila is aged longer than your typical silver or gold, and this one is aged for nine months in oak barrels. The oak tends to mellow out and smoothen the flavor of "The Juice," making for a Tequila that's more of a sipper than a mixer. We've snooped around and heard good things about all three varieties of XXX (Silver, Gold and Reposado); if you want to give them a try you can buy a bottle of the Gold at Internet Wines or check your local liquor store.

Now they seem to be going after more serious drinkers with their 100% Blue Agave Reposado Tequila, The Reposado is more of a sipper than a mixer and i aged for nine months in white oak barrels. XXX Tequila was recently anointed by Time magazine as a "hot brand" and has received awards from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
