Storywood Reposado Tequila Review

We love it when new-to-us spirit announcements land in our inbox, which is exactly what happened to us when Big Thirst Marketing sent us a bit of info about a Tequila aged in Speyside Whisky barrels. The name of this Tequila is called Storywood and it comes in Reposado and Anejo expressions. We were lucky enough to discuss this spirit with the founder of Storywood during a recent Zoom session and now you’re lucky enough to find out what we thought of it.

Here’s a bit about Storywood and the Reposado expression that is the subject of today’s review:

Storywood is known for being the first tequila to be aged in whisky barrels from Speyside, Scotland.

Both Storywood Reposado and Añejo tequilas begin with 10-year-old mature 100% blue Weber agave, harvested from the lowland region of Jalisco then married with the natural spring water from Volcan de Tequila that flows down from the mountains. The tequila is produced by master distiller Carlos Hernandez Ramos from La Cofradia then aged in the finest of oak casks from Speyside, Scotland.

Reposado Speyside 7 has notes of caramel, subtly oaky with hints of vanilla and honey on an earthly, lowland agave base, and is aged over 7 months in Scotch Speyside whisky barrels.

One of us enjoys Tequila. One of us does not. But we both love whisky, especially Scotch whisky. Was the Speyside whisky barrel aging enough of a twist to win over the Tequila naysayer? Click play on the following video to find out!
