Drink Review: Lunazul Reposado Tequila

A 100% agave reposado Tequila from Tierra de Agaves, Lunazul is part-owned by Heaven Hill Distilleries. The brand has a marketing riff based on the ‘spirit of the wolf’.

This is a lovely example of a cashmere-soft Reposado Tequila. The aromatics really open up and present themselves while the spirit is still young, but it fills out and grows on you. It really melts onto the palate; you could almost call it smooth. But it’s not; it still has a little bit of a bite. Don’t be distracted by this; it’s part of the package. The mouthfeel is watery. It’s a really lovely texture.

Lunazul Reposado Tequila Review 1: 

“It’s amazing. It’s a miracle”

Lunazul Reposado Tequila is a badass. It’s an OK. It’s a very nice Tequila but it’s not a killer, it’s not a cheap Tequila. So it’s “pretty good”.

This is a 100% agave Reposado Tequila that was blended by Heaven Hill Distilleries. Cashmere already described it as “soft and spreadable”. That’s spot on. It is definitely spreadable and spreads all over your tongue and palate. 

The aroma is lemony for sure and smoky. There is an obvious presence of cinnamon and there is a hint of vanilla in the background. The spirit has a fairly pronounced ‘tannin’ on the palate (I don’t like that term) and this is the spice that the body of the spirit.The spice just tingles on the palate and finishes with a warm, sweet caramel. The lemon is also quite subtle and the spices lend themselves to a fruitiness that is quite pleasant.

This is a really pleasant reposado Tequila. It’s light and mellow yet has a good amount of body. It finishes with a long, spicy after-burnThe aromatics are very light on the palate and there’s quite a long finish to this. It’s a bit difficult coming off the palate as the flavours have been almost too subtle for me to pick up.A very smooth reposado Tequila with minimal after-taste. It is light in colour and the oily mouth feel is evident. That said, it has a lot of body and there is an obvious ‘swing’ to this.This is a very subtle reposado Tequila.

 Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by other reposado Tequilas from Lunazul, perhaps it’s thicker than others.That said, this is a very pleasant Tequila. On the nose it was a softer reposado; no aromas of oak. This Tequila is much more subtle than anticipated – caramel, citrus and, sweet pepper. That said, the Tequila does taste like a reposado.It is a nice reposado Tequila. The ‘wow’ factor is quite low and the sweetness is unique – a bit plum-like and the sweetness from the agave comes through quite well. The body is really nice and the finish is long and spicy.

Overall I must say I loved this Tequila and I’m keen to try more.

This is a fantastic tequila. I don’t think there is a better tequila for cocktails.

If you like to mix cocktails this is the perfect tequila to have in your bar.

As an unaged spirit it’s very smooth.

It is a beautiful and delicious reposado that will make you want to try other products from the company.

The flavours are lemon and vanilla. As I said before it’s mixed beautifully and is part of our National Cocktail Month.

This is the second tequila we tried from Lunazul. The first was Tequila Siete Leguas. After a really good experience the second time around, I decided to order another. That’s how you know you’re doing something right.

The first tequila we tried, Tequila Siete Leguas, was a habano reposado tequila. The tequila is produced in the state of Jalisco. The tequila is produced from 100% blue agave.

This one is a 100% agave reposado tequila. It’s produced in the state of Guanajuato.
