About this deal

Third time - something markedly savoury hit me this time. Not sure what, but had a mental flash of meat on a grill, so something more umami-ish? No idea, but probably just making this up anyway! Olmeca Altos Reposado and Añejo are aged in 200-litre bourbon barrels for minimum of 12 months. Using smaller barrels creates a more complex profile, perfectly balanced, keeping its unique tequila taste. A Love Letter to I’m Sorry and a Tribute to Funny Moms in 3 Bits By Annie Berke September 6, 2023 | 11:48am In this case, the tequila Reposado will improve both your Blue Margaritas and your Skinny Margarita. You can also prepare a Margarita Recipe with this tequila. Olmeca Altos Reposado is our most awarded tequila, acheiving several medal at the most distinguished spirit competitions around the world since its creation.

With their experience working in acclaimed bars and winning awards, they sought out master distiller Jesus Hernandez in Altos de Jalisco. Olmeca Altos Plata is the most traditional expression of Altos. Recognized for its natural smoothness when sipped, but also for being the Margarita champion, a top choice tequila for margaritas by bartenders. While Olmeca Altos is undeniably good, it falls short of being classified as a premium Tequila, a designation reserved for only a select few.Olmeca Altos Reposado is our most awarded tequila, achieving several medal at the most distinguished spirit competitions around the world since its creation; including The Tequila Masters, The San Francisco World Spirits competition, Critics Challenge, Concours Mondial Bruxelles, and more. However, it’s important to note that Reposado Tequilas can impart a slightly cloudy appearance to Margaritas, which may be off-putting to some. Olmeca Añejo stands out among other affordable añejos for its lighter, more natural-tasting profile. Olmeca Altos offers a range of quality Tequilas at affordable prices, making them appealing to both beginners and old-school Tequila aficionados.

Altos Tequila is made using a traditional method of crushing the agave plants with a two-ton tahona stone, which helps preserve the agave’s natural sweetness better than the roller mill. It begins with 100% blue Weber agave harvested 7,000 feet above sea level in the volcanic-rich soils of the Jalisco Highlands. Agave, unlike a grape or wheat crop, takes closer to a decade to properly mature. That means the soil and growing conditions have more impact on the final product than fermentation, distillation and aging combined. The growing region of Los Altos is situated 6,900 feet above sea level and has mineral rich volcanic soil—ideal for growing flavorful agave. The finish is warm and peppery with a slight burn, but nothing severe, and a salty aftertaste. My opinion: Olmeca Reposado is fruity, sweet and slightly woody. Aged in ex bourbon casks for at least 5 months, its sweet aroma with a touch of smoke is sure to make your night golden.

Flavour: The word “fresh” comes to mind for the initial taste. A bit sharper (wrong word, but somehow it felt localized to a few areas, so sharp as in ‘concentrated and intense’, but not as in ‘burning’) alcohol feel in the mouth when holding it on the tongue than I though I got with the Don Julio. I liked it. More volume needed in next sip to taste more, I think. Directly from Los Altos highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, Olmeca Blanco it carries a naturally sweet freshness to make any cool moment even cooler. Olmeca Reposado, a Tequila is fruity, sweet, and slightly woody. Perfect for the shot of energy your night is waiting for!
