About this sotol
Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol Reposado is made from 100% wild-harvested Dasylirion plants in the Chihuahuan Desert of Northern Mexico. Master distiller José Daumas Gil de Partearroyo oversees the state of the art production process which starts by slowly cooking the plants in steam-heated ovens, natural fermentation with champagne yeast, and then distilling twice in a double-column copper still. After being distilled, this sotol is aged from 6 months up to 1 year in new french oak barrels.

Nose: Floral sweetness. Very light vanilla.
Palate: Initially bitter. Black licorice. Vanilla. Tad bit of a soapy taste. Thin mouth-feel. Floral finish but more from the stems or leaves. Earthy wet soil detected in the aftertaste with lingering vanilla.
The French oak barrels do add value to this brand – versus their platinum sotol. Still, it’s a bit rough.
Another gray sipping Sotol. Much like their Añejo this Sotol is very smooth and lacks the harsh bite of many other drink. The Reposado is a fantastic fairly cheap bottle of Sotol to enjoy with company. So smooth it’s easy to find yourself enjoying good conversation with friends till sunup; or the bottle runs dry. This is my go to for a inexpensive bottle of Sotol.
