Dos Armadillos is the continuation of a family legacy originally founded by Señor Gustavo Jiminez. It is named for the animal that embodies the ancient Mexican symbol of armour and protection, with that design represented on its ornate glass bottle. The reposado is made from 100% agave harvested at a minimum of 8 years and rested 6 months in 200 litre American oak barrels.
The sweetness of the tequila is even richer here than in their plata expression, though it is held in check just up to the point of becoming too cloying. Deep caramel and cinnamon play off vanilla and ripe orchard fruits. Some banana bread with roasted nuts add to the mix, with just a hint of stewed agave rising to the surface.
