Clean and lovely legs and tears. The aroma is a brilliant pepper, cooked agave, and minerals which carry through to the taste with a somewhat oily mouthfeel that is nearly perfect in texture for me. Medium/long finish that ends with some black pepper and and nice heat. I tasted this one blind and was not at all surprised when it was revealed. Currently my #1 out of 1579 and, with the G4 repo being my going favorite regularly available in that expression, that's saying something for me!

Cristal Clear juice. Nose: cooked agave, thyme, smoke, mineral, tropical fruit, citrus, sage. Need to oxygenate before tasting to appreciate all the aromas. Flavor: sweet agave, pepper, olive, tropical fruit. Finish nice and long.

If the G4 Blanco 80 proof is all cooked agave, grass, and black pepper; this is all cooked agave, black pepper, cinnamon, and alcoholic heat. I can see how the heat here may turn some people off since it certainly isn't as subtle as other high proofs. But there's still that classic El Pandillo minerality alongside some light fruits and citrus. Adding a few drops of water helps quell the heat if the alcohol proves to be too much. EDIT - I've let this open up a bit more and I'm getting lots of green olive too. Definitely take the extra time to let this one breathe.

This tequila needs to sit and open up. You also need to take your time with this, there is a lot going on with the nose, so do some exploring. This has the complexity of the G4 coming out of 1579. Nose: cooked agave, alcohol, cinnamon, wet cement after a summer rain, citrus (tangerine) vanilla, jalapeño, sweetness of grilled pineapple and peach Flavor: starts off hot, has a creamy and spicy mouth feel, cooked agave, hot cinnamon like the candy atomic fire balls, and citrus Finish: starts with sweet ripe fruit, gets spicy like green peppers, the cooked agave comes through, and finishes hot and leaves your mouth tingling Yes I would cook with this like flaming of butter sauté shrimp, scallops, or clams.

Aroma carries agave without any heat. Hints of acetone / esters behind vanilla towards the end of the smell. Mid palate taste shines with a warm agave forward flavor, then let’s you know it’s been aged in wood. Overall a great mouthfeel & experience from a lightly aged Repo.

Tasting this G4 108 and a Spring Water 110 side by side. 108 is hot at first, tip of tongue numbing. Several small sips taken over 10 minutes or so have less effect and I think we're ready to taste. Technically the single water G4 55% is not the same as the blended water G4 108. Made at the same distillery these have many similarites but also numerous differences. Mouth effect is really almost 180° with the buzz right up front on the 108 assaulting the tongue whereas the SW 110 is at the end more near the back of the throat as you swallow. Great stuff in both bottles though, no doubt.
