El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva The nose is light but pleasant. Cooked agave and some light honey. I taste cooked agave, with some slight cinnamon and then white pepper. The finish in nice. It starts sweet and then the pepper comes in and lingers. It’s nice and balanced. It’s light in the palette and has a light body but it’s balanced and there isn’t an offensive note. It’s well made. Salud!

Nose: Spice and round fruit notes to begin. A warm allspice, cinnamon and clove spice blend. Citrus, dark cherries and ripe peaches. A leather and vanilla aroma. A light pepper that has a sweet nuance. A hint of butterscotch. Flavors: Fruit, dried fruit, spice and nuts: filberts and walnuts. Orange peel and salty toffee. It has building pepper and cinnamon heat that carries a punch, but backs off pretty quickly. Perfect amount of oak presence for my tastes. This has great balance and is my favorite expression of the new Round Bottle releases.

Fruit, dried fruit, vanilla, raisin, oak aromas. Oak, barrel spice, and vanilla flavor. Finish is spicy, with leather, and has a black pepper ending.

Aromas of dried pitted fruit (apricot, plum), whisky, slight clove. Nice, rich mouthfeel, honey taste with a surprising tobacco finish. A mix of 2 yr and 6 yr aged tequilas.

Nose: You need to give this some breathing time to coax out the bouquet. Warm, round agave aromas. Bright spices and peppery earthiness. Both lemon and orange citrus notes. Maybe melon or mango. Subtle herbal scent of dill and thyme. Flavor: Slightly viscous with a sweet and punchy agave/pepper kick off. The spices and citrus follow the nose, with the addition of silky salted caramel. The flavors are much more dynamic than the aromas.

Tequileno Blanco I smell clean agave and sweet minerals. I taste a punch of sweet agave and pepper. There is a nice medium finish. This review is too simple for such a tasty tequila! Go buy one and let me know what you think.

This Reposado is truly rare. It’s aged for 6 years but can’t be called an XA because it was aged in a vessel larger than 600 liters. The age shows in the mellowing and complexity of the spirit. I smell cooked agave and caramel, natural vanilla, dark fruits and hints of floral notes. I taste the sweet cooked agave and butterscotch. Hints of pepper and spice. The finish is nice and long. I love this tequila and I’m appreciative of companies willing to experiment and create unique rare tequilas. It ain’t cheap but it’s worth it! Salud Amigos!
