Altos Reposado Tequila

Altos Reposado Tequila is on my Middle Shelf. It is a general-purpose cheap tequila and can be sipped neat or mixed in drinks. In today's blog, I intend to cover the following-

-Brief history behind this tequila
-My tasting notes
-SJ's Rating & review
-SJ's Pro tip
-Occasions best suited 

Altos Tequila does not have any history like a highly authentic artisanal tequila. It is mass-produced by the Pernod Ricard company. The creators are two former bartenders according to its website. They seem to follow high-quality standards in crafting their tequila with high-quality agave. Also, it is cooked in a brick oven and Tanoa stone is used to shred the agave. It gets double distilled in small-batch copper stills and finally ages 6-8 months in former whiskey barrels. 
Now speaking of Altos Reposado expression. According to the website, it is made of 100% Blue Agave grown in Mexico in the lands of Los Altos, Jalisco. Seems like an interesting tasting session :-). 
Enjoy my tasting notes!
