  • The Fortaleza 2023 Winter Blend Reposado presents a captivating color, reminiscent of a golden green hue with Sauvignon Blanc-like characteristics. Upon swirling the glass, the tequila reveals its excellent viscosity, coating the glass in a mesmerizing display of heavy beads.
  • On the nose, a delightful medley of aromas greets the senses. The mild sweetness of molasses intertwines harmoniously with the essence of cooked agave. A subtle hint of brine adds a touch of saltiness, while fresh rubbed mint offers a refreshing herbal note. Delicate floral nuances and zesty lemon zest contribute to the aromatic symphony.

A delicate note of white pepper gently tickles the senses, providing a subtle hint of spice. Under ripened pineapple imparts a tangy sweetness, evoking a tropical sensation. Notes of campfire smoke and barrel char add depth and character, lending a touch of smokiness to the overall profile.
  • The French Oak, in which a part of the blend was aged, imparts a unique waxiness that enhances the experience. This velvety texture adds a luxurious mouthfeel, elevating the overall tasting experience to new heights. The combination of flavors creates a harmonious balance, showcasing the incredible craftsmanship that went into creating this exceptional tequila.

Production Process

  • The production process of the Fortaleza 2023 Winter Blend Reposado reflects a deep commitment to craftsmanship and attention to detail. The tequila begins its journey by aging for six months in first-fill Charanda barrels made of American Oak. These barrels, reminiscent of Mexican rum production, infuse the tequila with a subtle richness and depth.
  • After the initial aging, the tequila undergoes a secondary maturation for three months in the same Charanda barrels. Additionally, a portion of the blend is transferred to French and Hungarian Oak barrels, further enhancing the complexity and imparting unique characteristics to the final product.
  • The meticulous blending of the aged tequila with Fortaleza’s standard reposado results in a masterful composition, where each element is carefully calibrated to achieve a sublime balance. The result is a limited edition release with a total production of 5500 liters, making it a true treasure to discover and savor.
