Very smooth agave and oak with light vanilla and pear flavors and a subtle earth note. Body: Medium body with slow tears on the glass and light, buttery mouth feel. The flavors are not real complex but balance each other nicely. Finish: Medium-length smooth finish of agave, oak, and vanilla notes followed by a mild agave kick, fading into a slight wood or earthy after taste. Solid for sipping and mixing. Hard pressed to find a better Repo for $23.

The finish is a bit “rough” in this reposado.

A decent tequila for the money. Strong pepper and alcohol taste so I will only be using this for mixes.

Bit of a harsh nose. Lot of alcohol hiding the agave, caramel, and ripe banana. Also hot on the tongue but a nice flavor overall. Oak, pepper, agave flavors. Short, slightly bitter finish.

Nose: Bright agave, fruit and floral notes. Palate: Initially, semi viscous, pepper and sweet agave. Secondary spices, mint and trace almond emerge. Mexican 38%.

I like the blanco for making margaritas but do not care for the reposado, even in a margarita. It has a funny, chemical (soapy?) taste

Solid sipper. Good compromise if you want the agave-forward of a blanco with more smoothness.

Very light color. Alcohol or maybe a light tequila agava aroma? Smooth flavor with the first after taste a little strong but smooth sipping after that! In fact very smooth and easy drinking. This could be my everyday tequila? At least one that is in the running.

This tequila became my favorite when I finally recovered from what my idea of tequila was in college. Very drinkable when stirred in ice. Sweet aroma and flavor, but souring finish. Great starter tequila, and great value.

High marks for being one of the rare, affordable non-diffuser tequilas available here in Ontario, Canada. It's clean, agave-forward, dependable and tasty. Is it high-end, premium tequila? Probably not.... But it beats the hell out of Patron at less than half the price, and is priced equivalently to diffuser brands like Cazadores or 1800 or El Jimador. Extra marks for being authentic!

I look for a reposado to offer both great taste and great value, the Espolon didn't taste great to me neat but worked well in margaritas. The taste was a little off from what I like...maybe had a bit too much whisky flavor for me to love neat but it is growing on me a bit..

Immediately after pouring and going to the nose you are hit by creamy big butter and vanilla. After letting it sit in glass for a few more seconds that dissipates. What is left is a green agave a touch of ethanol from the alcohol and maybe a touch of barrel spice hiding in the back. Palate is smooth and tastes of green agave with light sour note.

To me, this is an excellent place to start with sipping tequila. The price is more than fair, and this is pretty good stuff. Much more complexity than you’d expect from a $24 bottle.

Now, I'm not saying this is a 5 star top of the line premium tequila but...it is the MOST underrated tequila out there. I understand this was originally a pricey bottle in the $80 range but then the powers to be wanted to compete in a market with more traffic so a redesigned bottle was incorporated with a more meager price point ($23 or so). Typically not found on the top shelf of your favorite retail joint but don't be misled by its placement. It's worthy of a purchase!! I've had many tequilas and this beats a lot of the pricier bottles. Please don't believe me but do discover for yourself

Ok flavor, a bit harsh. Did not experience anything close to "intense vanilla".......

When this is on sale it's a fantastic deal. At full price less so.

Amazing value at $20! The only tequila that is a better value, in my opinion, is Costco's Kirkland Signature.
