Don Julios classic Reposado Tequila rested in Islay Single Malt casks, bringing smoky back.

Don Julio Gonzalez started making his own Tequila in 1942 when he was only seventeen years old. Within five years he opened his own distillery, naming it “Primavera” (meaning “Springtime”). He spent the next forty years refining his process and improving the quality of his brands. Seagrams came along and invested in 1990s, and Diageo acquired the entire operation in 2014. Today, they make their namesake Don Julio brand of fine Jalisco Tequilas and several other Spirits brands in the Diageo portfolio.

Don Julio Reposado Double Cask Lagavulin Finish has been called “the return of smoky Tequila.” Lagavulin is a famous Islay Single Malt Whisky known for its rich, smoky palate and aroma. Don Julio master Distiller Enrique de Colsa collaborated with Lagavulin distillery manager Colin Gordon to get some of their used aging casks. Don Julio takes their signature Tequila rested for eight months in ex-Bourbon casks and finishes it in those Lagavulin casks — resulting in a deep, earthy, herbal smokiness.

Smartass corner:
Barrels are a big part of the magic of any aged Spirit. Lagavulin uses ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks. So the finishing casks in this expression are living their third life via four Spirits — touching Bourbon, Sherry, Single Malt, and Tequila.

Corner
If the Tequila bottle label does not state that it’s manufactured from 100% Blue Agave, then, by default, that Tequila is a Mixto (manufactured from 51% Blue Agave).

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Light Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is like damp, sweet herbs roasting on the Bar-B-Q with a bit of honey sweetness and a dash of menthol.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is really interesting because of the peat influence from the Lagavulin casks, plus notes of raisins, toasted oak, cilantro, and hot agave nectar.

Finish
The finish is long and adds a note of cinnamon to the smokiness.

Daniel,
Agave, lime, smoke, and herbs on the nose. Sweet caramel and smooth palate, almost buttery, but lacking something. Finish is mediocre, smokey, and more burn than I like. Not enough time in time Lagavulin casks In my opinion haha. Good, but did not live up to my expectations. I think I’ve been spoiled with the DJ 1942
