Review: Cabrito Reposado Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 19, 2020

Cabrito is a Tequila Brand owned by the Phillips Distilling Co.. The agave spirit is produced by Tequila Centinela, S.A. de C.V. (Nom 1140). (This is the same distillery which produces Centinela Tequila). The distillery is located in the Arandas, Jalisco which is the main tequila production center in the Los Altos highlands.

Cabrito Tequila is produced from 100 % agave grown in the Los Altos highlands. Tequila produced from highland agave typically exhibits strong fruity citrus notes and has a little squeal of hot pepper in the finish.  In the case of Cabrito, their harvested agave is cooked in a stone oven. The cooked agave is shredded with a roller mill and the extracted juice is double distilled.

The Reposado Spirit was rested for a period of at least two month (but less than a year) in oak barrels and bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my review:

Review: Cabrito Reposado Tequila

“… The tequila enters the mouth with a light butterscotch sweetness combined with punky agave. This is quickly followed by a squeal of peppery highland agave spice. I taste light impressions of almond and vanilla within the mild butterscotch. The fruity agave gives me impressions of grilled zucchini and plantain. There is also a very light smoky quality which seems to hint at tea leaves and leather …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with my cocktail suggestion, the Picador.

Review: Revel Stoke Deluxe Canadian Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on July 2, 2016

Revel Stoke WhiskyRevelstoke SAM_2621 is a product of the Phillips Distilling Company and is named for the town of Revelstoke, located in the mountains of British Columbia. The whisky itself is however not produced in British Columbia but instead it is distilled on the other side of those mountains at an undisclosed Canadian Distillery.

According to the producer’s website, the whisky is produced by blending a young 3-year-old whisky (the youngest allowed by Canadian Law) with a more mature 8-year-old whisky. The final blend is bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my review of this new Canadian Whisky:

Review: Revel Stoke Deluxe Canadian Whisky

“… The flavour of the whisky leads out with a lightly sweet impression of toffee alongside both bitter and spicy rye grain. The mouthfeel is soft, however the whisky has plenty of wood spice to both heat and pucker the palate between sips.  This is a dusty dry whisky, and as I sip, impressions of ripened grain fields and dry grassy hay lands both find their way into my consciousness …”

Please enjoy this new Canadian Whisky review!

Chimo!
