Voodoo Tiki Tequila Reposado, 40%

Tequila Reposado is the kind of tequila that has been in a cask for a short while. This while ranges from 2 months to 1 year, according to wikipedia. After that it becomes tequila añejo, with some more time in wood to its name.

Anyway, I don’t know  much about the stuff but I know there are some gimmicky producers around, since this one has a small statue in the bottle. Probably some voodoo idol, but I care more for the booze than for all the stuff that comes with it.

Sniff:
This one is a little bit less sweet than the previous one, but has a strange scent of burnt vegetables and dish washing liquid. The fruit is gone from the nose and has been replaced by a lot of gentle spices. It also picked up a little bit of bitterness from the oak.

Sip:
Spicy and bitter at first and it made me think of pear cores. There’s a lot of licorice in this one and I even get ‘wybertjes’, which is a Dutch licorice based cough sweet or something. It has a slight fizzy feeling to it.

Swallow:
The palate picked it up from the nose, and the finish picks up from the palate. Delicious! I get mojito, Long Island ice tea, lime, bitter caramel and some aloe vera floralness.

A bit of a strange one since it starts on those hints of dishwashing, a chemical variety on aloe vera I think. Somewhat better than yesterday’s 30-30, but still not something that makes me spend money.

Tequila Reposado, Voodoo Tiki, 40%, 100% Blue Agava, available at DH17 for € 45.50.
