Partida Reposado: Smooth Aged Tequila

Partida Reposado - Smooth Aged TequilaThe sweet smell of Partida Reposado is the best way to start a night of tequila sipping. Not as powerful as a Partida Añejo Tequila (though close) and not as subtle as a Partida Blanco Tequila, this reposado stands in a class of its own. It falls somewhere between a great mixing tequila (don’t confuse this with mixto) and a potent sipping tequila.

I’ve found this 100% agave Reposado works great as a relaxing sipper or in a sweet margarita. The smell is sweet but the taste is potent and awakening and will leave you with a satisfying smile. This Mexican surprise is well-worth a sip to get the full impact of  well balanced tequila, starting off velvet smooth and crisp and ending with a potent bang (40% alcohol by volume).

“Looking for something exceptionally smooth and rich? Experience Partida’s signature touch of sweetness in Partida Reposado. This aged Tequila delivers subtle flavors that Tequila drinkers may have not thought possible. Free of the overbearing smoky flavor common to most Reposados, this Tequila is in a class by itself.

Its enticing light amber color with splashes of golden tones gives this premium Tequila its brilliant appearance. A rich finish topped off with scents of vanilla, hazelnut and almond, F. Paul Pacult called Partida Reposado ‘The Bentley of Reposado’s’.” (partidatequila.com)

If you’re looking for a new tequila to try, Partida should be at the top of your list. I’ve found very few tequila’s that can match their Reposado, Blanco and Añejo. I think, out of each of their selections, the Reposado is the best because it falls middle-of-the line in terms of age and quality. A huge Añejo lover will want to stick with the age they love but those that are unsure or want something that’s smooth with a powerful taste that doesn’t go over the top may want to try the Reposado. Really, that goes for any of the tequila brands–to each his own.

I’ve shared the Partida Añejo with a die-hard tequila fan and his reaction was, “Wow, this is really good. I didn’t expect that.” Although he’s an avid Añejo fan I think the Reposado I’m going to give him will result in the same reaction.
