10 Things Every Guy Should Know About Tequila

How does aging affect tequila?

"The process of aging tequila allows it to mellow into a smoother and different taste while capturing the subtle undertones from the wooden barrels each batch is aged in. Depending on the barrels used, and the maturation length, aging can affect the taste of each batch differently."

"For example, a Reposado needs to be aged at least two months according to Mexican law, but Don Julio matures its Reposado for at least eight months, which allows the delicious oak, chocolate, and cinnamon notes to come through and provide a fuller flavor."
