The mission at Don Fulano has always been to produce exceptional tequila. They employ a truly unique dual distillation process; an old style double column still and also a traditional copper pot still, using heat to eliminate any unwanted alcohols. The two distillates are then blended. Anywhere between 12-16% of the distillate comes from the column still, this process is used exclusively by Don Fulano and allows them to consistently create tequilas of the highest quality.
The Reposado is carefully rested in a combination of new and used French limousine oak barrels for a minimum of eight months and up to two years. This ensures that the resulting spirit is the perfect balance between agave notes and those from the barrel.
Immediately very fruity – red fruits, especially cherries, and jam. The sweetness of cooked agave enhances the fruitiness, with delicate herbal notes providing a balancing counterpoint.
The French oak influence becomes obvious on the palate, with rich caramel, maple syrup and creamy vanilla flavours. With those is fruity dark chocolate, some of the jam from the nose, although deep in the mix, and gentle spiciness.
The cask influence is felt yet again in the finish, where agave pepperiness quickly fades to vanilla.
