La Gritona is light on sweetness and retains the aroma and true essence of the plant from which it was distilled. Though La Gritona reposado has rested for 8 months in oak, the taste is herbaceous, with agave notes that have not been “whiskified” by the barreling process. It is a very vegetal tequila, without the notes of oak, pepper, vanilla or dulce de leche that can be associated with a highland reposado. It retains the crisp qualities reminiscent of an excellent silver tequila while still expressing subtle signs of Melly’s deliberate, careful aging. The finish is extremely round with no burn. We recommend it straight with no ice, lime, salt, or mixer. It’s best when paired it with a nice cold Mexican lager or pilsner.
