‘Reposado’ is by definition a hybrid ageing description particular and exclusive to spirits produced in Hispanic countries. It is hybrid since any Reposado spirit in any spirits category is actually “incompletely” aged for only a few months. This is done deliberately, as such short ageing imbues a white spirit with a slight wood aroma. However, the spirit is still dominated by the raw material aroma prevalent in white, unaged spirits (in our case, blue agave). Consequently, ‘Reposado’ is neither a true white spirit nor a truly aged spirit, but a hybrid form of these two.‘The Reposado by Porfidio’ is fundamentally aligned with this approach, but accommodates the taste to a less ethnically-oriented market. This is achieved by ageing ‘The Reposado by Porfidio’ for seven months instead of the customary two months; hence it is labelled as Reposado “Extra”. All other product characteristics are identical to ‘The Anejo by Porfidio’.
