“It’s popular with beginners and experienced tequila drinkers alike.”
The soft, notable taste of Fortaleza, enriched with a slight bourbon finish.
Fortaleza reposado is a perfect blend of the taste of roasted agave together with the rich finish of bourbon barrels.
Aromas of citrus, caramel, butter, cooked agave, and sage are the beginning of a pleasingly balanced and very unique tasting experience. Fortaleza Reposado has its own distinct character, and is not like any other tequila. Flavours include cooked agave, citrus, vanilla, apple, earth, and cinnamon. The finish is long and rich, delicately spicy, and it has an oily texture that make this a joy to drink.
Tequila Fortaleza Reposado is produced in the old traditional and artesian way just as Guillermo’s grandfathers used to do. The agave is cooked slowly in brick ovens for 36 hours and crushed with a tahona; a stone wheel mill. The juice is fermented naturally for five days in small wooden vats and then distilled in copper stills. This distilled beauty rests in an American oak barrel for 8 months before its bottled.
