Distinguished from the rest of the Partida range by its lime-green neck label and ‘spirit bird’ logo, this reposado is aged for 6 months in ex-bourbon barrels. The empty casks are hot-washed twice with distilled water so only a little of the ‘toast’ whiskey character is left to influence the tequila

Spicy caramel, fudge and vanilla.
Initially incredibly smooth, almost creamy. The flavour and character quickly builds with the fudgy vanilla notes from the nose joined by warm, spicy, piny, drier elements.
Hints of bitter dark chocolate and dry hazelnut and walnut lead into a bone dry finish that is strangely rewarding with hints of cigarette ash, nuts and smoke.
