Review: Apocalypto Reposado Tequila

Share

apocalypto tequilaStunt bottlings are increasingly common, but a ceramic half-man/half-jaguar (with tongue sticking out) that contains reposado tequila, well, that’s a new one even for me.

Apocalypto is 100% agave tequila, sourced from the Jalisco lowlands and aged for more than six months in ex-Bourbon barrels before getting the half-jaguar treatment.

Never mind the decanter. Here’s how the stuff inside measures up.

Very, very sweet, particularly for a reposado. There’s tons of caramel, marshmallow, and butterscotch on the nose. This carries over in spades to the body, which is slightly chocolate-driven, too. The finish is curious: Clear red pepper notes that pop as the tequila fades. Terrible in a margarita — unless you like overpowering caramel — but more fun on its own.

80 proof.

    I would like to know where this tequila is manufactured and distributed from.
    I also would like to know the name of the owner of the tequila company.
