Aroma : Agave, alcohol, vanilla, cinnamon and oak . Nothing too complex here. Taste : Alcohol and agave with a fair amount of vanilla and oak. Again nothing too complex here. To me it seemed like the notes got "mixed" together or something of the like. It might have something to do with the oddly sweet nature of the vanilla notes. Finish : Finish is somewhat short with a bit of spice and alcohol, with some vanilla notes here as well. This is a pretty basic tequila. Not bad, but it's not something I would drink straight again. I'm sure it would go well in a margarita though.

Tried an old bottle - same NOM but 38% abv. Love this easy drinking tequila!

This is an easy drinking tequila that is surprisingly inexpensive. If you want a nice tequila for your party that won't break the bank then here you go.

This is a shot tequila for fun parties at a decent price, but falls short of a sipping tequila under my ratings

Nose: Had a sweetness of honeysuckle, caramel, wood, citrus and berries. Muted agave. Tongue: A little hot. Agave was not the star of the show. Butterscotch, oak, light vanilla, sweetener, pressure-cooked agave. Long, but somewhat artificial finish. With that said, it wasn’t offensive. The price point is fantastic, just not an all-night sipper, for me.

Smooth taste as a Reposado, has a slightly sharp alcohol smell. Nice woody taste that coats the tongue that goes down smooth. Nice tequila overall that I found tasty as a mixer but enjoyed in a shot glass as well. Would recommend for others to try and will enjoy myself again. Look forward to trying the Blanco next.

Cooked agave, oak citrus, cinnamon and alcohol on the nose. Cooked agave, pepper, cinnamon and a hint of vanilla in the mouth. Carmel, flowers and artificial sweetener on the finish. This is a great bargain repo. $17.99 for 750ml at Frys in Tucson.

Still quite a bit of bitterness off the hop but the oak treatment seems to have weeded out the sweet agave I love so much! Warm butterscotch finish is nice but I’ll stick with the Blanco.

SHOOTING TEQUILA RATING. as far as tequila shots go this is one of my favourites. I would not give this the same rating as a sipping tequila.

The 10th wonder of the world budget tequila. 20 bucks buys a tequila that has nothing offensive on it. Really inconsistent however. Does not age well in the bottle. At around one year the fruit dies and it takes a whiskey flavor.

Smells kinda sweet and caramely. Pretty smooth and sort of fruity tasting, with just a bit of peppery bite. Lingering alcohol burn but overall pretty good.

Surprised, this is a nice sipping tequila when you can not find a 1921 or a Don Julio. I would buy this again at $25 it’s a good one to have around.

Loads of oak in a bad way, as in not integrated into the tequila, just adding a taste of wood chips.

A very under-rated Tequila, in my opinion, and one of the best values available.

Soft aroma of oak. Vanilla, touch of caramel. Fast finish.

Not a huge nose on this one, just agave, alcohol and spice. Flavor of black pepper, agave, and a little oak. Definitely some heat, pepper, agave and alcohol on the finish.

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.
