This Cristalino is created using Partida’s Roble Fino Reposado which is made by using their La Familia Reposado that is then finished in the sherry casks for an additional 2 months. It’s naturally filtered using charcoal to remove the color. It’s bottled at 40% ABV - 80 proof. Their single malt sherry oak casks have been used for decades creating some of Scotland’s finest whiskies but now they are used to create Partida’s ultimate luxury sipping tequilas, Roble Fino. There is some slight color that remains. It’s has a very pale straw hue and it coats the glass nicely. The aromas are vibrant and has essence of red fruits with a sweet tannic quality. I’m being reminded of dry red wine while some cooked buttery agave and minerals appears on the tail end. There’s also some muted lemon zest and perfumed floral notes throughout. This is an additive free Cristalino, one of only a few known additive free Cristalinos. There are dense flavors that immediately appear. The wood notes from the double oak aging appear first. It’s dry and tannic with a slight alcohol presence. Some vegetal pepper and agave sweetness appear on the mid palate. The denseness of the wood notes and the pepper linger into the finish. The color is mostly gone but the flavors and aromas certainly aren’t. If you are looking to try a quality and flavorful Cristalino then this one is for you. Salud!

The Roble Fino (Fine Oak) Reposado is created using the Partida La Familia Reposado which is aged for 6 months in a medium toast barrel that previously held a high corn mashbill bourbon. That tequila is then finished in Sherry Casks for an additional 2 months and bottled at 43% ABV. This double casked Reposado is unique. The nose is very aromatic and the scents jump out of the glass. The nose is sweet, fruity and spicy. The sweetness of the cooked agave and the fruitiness from the sherry casks accompany the barrel notes from both casks to give it the spiciness. Somehow the nose is simultaneously juicy and dry at the same time. There’s juicy dark fruit and dry barrel notes along with a hint of earthiness and alcohol. It’s a flavorful pour. On the front palate I get the sweet agave and earthiness. On the mid-palate I get juicy red fruit and the barrel spices. The 43% ABV / 86 proof provides a spicy and peppery finish. The nose and flavors are very well balanced and layered. There’s depth and complexity without confusion. This is a fine sipping tequila and an excellent Reposado. It should be shared neat with family and loved ones!
