Tequila Cuestión Reposado

Cuestión Tequila Reposado is a “rested” ultra-premium tequila, aged 6 months in world-famous American Oak whiskey barrels from Lynchburg, Tennessee. Born of the same all-natural Blue Weber Agave plants used in our award-winning Cuestión Tequila Blanco, our Tequila Reposado boasts a smooth, rich finish with hints of caramel, vanilla and spice, complimented by an intoxicating floral aroma. Cuestión Tequila Reposado is best enjoyed neat, on the rocks, with a splash of lime, orange or grapefruit juices, or as a perfect compliment to your top-shelf Margarita.

Founded in 2007 by Jose de Jesus Dominguez Figueroa and his partner Jose de Julio Marquez Ochoa. President / CEO of Cuestion Spirits Company, Inc., Jason Fandrich partnered with Jesus and Julio in 2009 to begin the import process and is the exclusive importer / distributor of Cuestion Tequila.

Reposado is the second offering from Cuestión that I have had the fortune of trying, and I am just as impressed as I was with the Blanco. My first taste was contained in a top-shelf margarita (w/ lime juice and Grand Marnier). I enjoyed it so much, I had to try it neat in a rocks glass. The nose contained everything I enjoy in an aged tequila: some vanilla, fruits, a hint of whiskey (Jack Daniels I found out), and just enough agave to remind you it's tequila. These characteristics carry nicely over to the palate, with a crisp yet smooth flavor up front and on the way down. No overpowering burn, but it definitely has some proof; to be expected with a good spirit like this. In a nutshell, Cuestión Reposado is a lighter color repo, but it's not light on flavor. Sip this one or use it in premium drinks. And that bottle! It is one of the most striking bottles, with good juice to back it up! My search is on for one.

Well, one look at the bottle and anyone would at least want to try this tequila. The bottle is in the shape of an upside down question mark. Now, for you non-Spanish linguists - every sentence in Spanish that is a question - must begin with an upside down question mark and ends with a right side-up one. The same for exclamation marks! So - I love the bottle and the top is a nice wooden knob with a rubber stopper underneath. It's a great bottle to pick up and hold. What about the really important stuff?
The color in a tasting glass is extremely light. You almost suspect that it has been removed with charcoal. The wood used is American oak - from charcoal-charred whiskey barrels. I think the color should be darker. But - onward to the appearance which includes thin legs with exceptional pearling. Aromatics are pleasant with sweet agave, vanilla, citrus and maybe a little whiskey. The initial taste is unusual - hard to describe; citrus, strong vanilla, plenty of agave and low to medium alcohol with almost no barrel influence. Mouth feel is thin with no coating of the tongue, teeth and palate. The flavor builds with subsequent tastings. I have come to prefer it with a sip of grapefruit soda between sips - so it's perfect for a Paloma. Bound to be good with mixed drinks - even better than sipping. Not sweet enough to suit me, but I love very sweet tequilas. Some people may love this. The price is average at about $50.00 a bottle. It has limited distribution thus far - primarily Tennessee and South Carolina. I stumbled on my bottle in a small town near the South/North Carolina border. A good find - if only to try a tequila I had never seen before. It's produced at a Los Altos distillery that also makes two of my absolute favorites: Ley .925 and Ambhar. So, it has a great pedigree and frankly, the longer your tasting - the more you will like it. A tequila that grows on you!
