Proof66 Notes

1921 tequilas are made with highland grown agave roasted in brick ovens, then shredded and milled in modern conditions. The tequila is double distilled in copper column stills. It is then blended with purified water and oxygenated to improve the "smoothness" of the taste.

According to a note in the Chicago Examiner, 1921 is meant to be a reference to the Mexican Revolution--it ended roughly in 1920--and each bottle bears a portrait of a Mexican hero.

1921 Reposado tequila is the "rested" expression where the blanco tequila is placed in white oak for a brief aging of less than 12 months. This gives the tequila a pale yellow color and a "smooth flavor" with a "subtle note of hazelnut."

This tequila was awarded a Gold Medal in the 2008 Agave Spirits Challenge.

According to a 1921 Facebook entry on March 9, 2010 they switched distilleries from the NOM 1079 Agabe Tequilana to NOM 1535 Destileria Morales, which we have reflected here.

This is a very good reposado tequila. A very good first taste, not too harsh. Very good agave flavor. I have been told this distillery uses older methods of distillation. No matter what it tastes very good and I would compare to El Tesoro but I prefer 1921 Reposado over the El Tesoro Reposado personally.
