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.

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.

Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.

Tequila goes bad with time! Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.

Tequila is made from one type of agave, Blue agave. Each of these plants takes at least 6 years, more likely a year or two longer to mature.
