Review: Alamo (Reposado) Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 5, 2018

Alamo is a tequila brand sold by Minhas Distilleries in Western Canada. I reviewed part of the portfolio a few years ago, but recently I noticed that a change had occurred concerning the distillery of origin for the tequila brand.

According to the Minhas Distillery website, Alamo Reposado is a 100 % Agave Tequila aged for 6 months in white American oak barrels. The Minhas website tells us that the Hernandes Estate near Guadalajara is located high in the mountains which implies the spirit is a highland tequila, however my research indicates that the distillery of origin, Agaveros y Tequileros Unidos de Los Altos typically uses both highland and lowland grown agave when producing their tequila. (In the production of tequila, highland agave tends to bring stronger fruity citrus notes and more spicy pepper into both the delivery and in the finish. Lowland tequila tends to bring firmer earthy flavours of the agave fruit into the flavour profile.)

Here is a link to my review of the Alamo Reposado Tequila:

Review: Alamo (Reposado) Tequila

“… When I brought the glass to my nose I discovered a lightly sweet, mildly punky agave aroma lifting from the glass. It has a fruity smell reminiscent of baked squash with white pepper and citrus zest building. There is a lovely earthy quality which brings me impressions of licorice and angelica as well as very light hints of butterscotch and oolong tea.

I hope you enjoy this review which includes a nice recipe suggestion, Maximiliano Tequila.
