Reposado ("Rested" in Spanish) refers to Tequila which is aged for a minimum of 2 months in oak barrels, but less than 1 year. The spirit takes on a golden hue and the taste becomes a good balance between the Agave and wood flavors. Many different types of wood barrels are used for aging, with the most common being American or French oak. These often offer the finest balance of youthful vigor, and the complexity of age. Some Tequilas are aged in used bourbon / whiskey, cognac, or wine barrels, and will inherit unique flavors from the previous spirit.
