From the tequila experts, Don Julio, comes a brand new product that will surely take the liquor world by storm. Let us welcome the Reposado Double Cask! The Don Julio family hasn’t added any product to their esteemed collection of fabulous drinks for six years now, and thus, Don Julio Reposado Double Cask Tequila breaks that streak. This excellent drink gives a nod to Scotland while the reposado cask it is packaged with gives respect to the company’s forefather, Gonzales, Don Julio – himself. Tequila lovers would surely adore this, whiskey aficionados will be tempted by this, and casual drinkers will be interested in it. That being said, here are a few fun facts regarding the new Don Julio Reposado Double Cask.
How Is It Made? How Does It Taste?
This genuinely superb drink begins maturing inside barrels of American white oak for eight long months and then finished up with Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky for another 30 days. The process may indeed be long, but as they say, perfection takes time. And that is precisely what you’d get out of this rich, complex tequila that has a taste of smokey Scotch whiskey mixed within.
As we may all remember, it was Don Julio Gonzales who sparked the evolution of the tequila industry back in 1942 when he started producing spirits. That is a testament to the company’s drive to deliver the world’s best brand of tequila and to push the industry to its limits. It took nearly three years for the master distiller, Enrique de Colsa, to perfect this latest innovation. He experimented nonstop with several varying cask options that are available in the portfolio Diageo until he landed on the product that exists today. Who would ever think that the missing ingredient was the Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky? When Colsa tried it, he immediately knew it was the right choice. It gave off a superb complexity of new flavors while still allowing the signature taste of the Don Julio to shine through.
The Reposado Double Cask has a genuinely astonishing taste — honeyed sections of agave with a hint of spice and tropical fruit. The finished product is smooth and spicy, mixed in with a touch of chocolate malt. How you indulge in it depends on your preference. Drink it neat or on the rocks; it will taste just the same – excellent.
