Pleasant melon, caramel and vanilla aromas. Cinnamon flavor and finish and medium viscosity.

Glass: Straw color. After coating the glass, small tears take a while to form before quickly rolling down the glass, leaving a few pearls hanging. Aroma: Let this open up for a couple of minutes to let an initial alcohol aroma to dissipate. Green pineapple, green agave, green apple. I presume these “green” notes are from cooking the agaves in an autoclave. Light oak and pepper. Entry: Buttery and slightly sweet, pepper presents quickly. Flavor: Buttery, sweet and peppery, soft agave notes. The sweetness is like that of a white fruit such as apple or pear, but does not really come with its own flavor. The butter notes are from the virgin American oak rather than baked agave. The pepper quickly consumes the experience. Finish: Big pepper with a little sweetness and agave for moderate length. Moist with some dry tannins. Conclusion: The agave flavors are fairly basic and “green” due to baking the agaves in the autoclave. The barrel notes are pleasant and what you might expect from virgin American oak. This is a worthy profile and welcome addition to the Don Pilar lineup. If you want to try a repo that doesn’t have whiskey/bourbon notes, or the chocolate/coffee notes you would get from virgin French oak, check this out. Priced at $37-40, it’s an excellent value.

Don Pilar Reposado – “Worth the Wait”

For many years, Don Pilar offered a blanco, añejo and extra añejo. “Donde estas, donde estas, Reposado?” Fans of the brands (like us) were excited when we heard that one was on the way, and we wondered how long it would be aged. Would it be a light-touch
