Nose: butterscotch (maybe butter beer), caramel, some tropical fruit (maybe kiwi). Possibly some pipe tobacco as well. Very nice. Flavor: medium light mouth feel with a little oily texture, unique flavor combo of tobacco, bit of a burn on the tongue Finish: long with a warm burn

Not my typical tequila has more of a pepper finish than I usually like but it's a great sipper. Smooth finish and complex flavors put this as a weekend tequila!

A very good reposado. Definitely an everyday drinker, light oak and smooth flavor. I will put this one in the rotation.

Tested in Neat glass up. Bottle looks old school, classy with piña cork very nice touch. Aroma is smooth and complex. Baked agave, caramel, butterscotch, vanilla mix with citrus undertones. Flavor baked agave and for me surprisingly earthy with pepper. You can taste the sweetness but it becomes the undertone. Finish is long! Pepper forward with lasting heat and back to the vanilla caramel late. Honestly an outstanding complex offering. This is at a higher price point but well worth it. I'll always have to have a bottle in my collection. Only advice is only serve this to your sipping friends.

from a beautiful blanco comes an extraordinary reposado. sweet nose with under currents of agave and vanilla. the slightly aged version comes with more caramel notes than its blanco brother. of the 3, this is the metrosexual: a little tougher, and a little prettier. the sip comes clean, light and sweet. citrus and caramel appear along with tuned oak that gave them life, then disappear into a vanish.

Great Tequila. Almost too smooth for my taste. Vanilla/Caramel hints. No real kick.

it had a really lite taste, almost like watered down. This would be good I suppose for someone that does not like the taste of tequila.

Interesting. Slightly sweet, has a flavor component I'm not familiar with. Might be anise, not a fan .. Would be a higher score in I found that component more appealing

Agave, roasted, light vanilla and honey, rounded out flavor but nothing pronounced. A little warm, light body. Finish is slightly bitter.

The repo definitely lives up to its name. Almost as good as the Blanco very close.

Tasted at Tico's restaurant in Boston in a white wine glass. Nice light amber color with moderate tears forming on the side of the glass. Nose had fairly strong vanilla with slight alcohol aroma. Very smooth for sure, but fairly linear taste of slight cinnamony oak with a nice tingle. Overall, a lovely rep, but I guess I would prefer a little more complexity. B

The biggest surprise in a blind taste testing. This is a brand I would buy and recommend, but I never realized before these tequilas run sweet. A nice full agave nose but with a candy cane sweet flavor and a bubblegum finish. My gut feeling has been that it doesn't live up to the original Los Abuelos's. I would probably rate this Tequila an 85 in any other circumstance, but I'll let my blind taste testing number stand.
