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.

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

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.

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

Sweet aroma, there is a slight burn on the finish. Definitely a good value tequila that can stand on its own.

Not much aroma at all. Flavor is average. I got this on sale for $18 so I thought I would try it. I'll use it for mixing only. Won't buy again.

I was overwhelmed by a strong "chemical smell" I bought this a a sipping tequila, when I was unable to drink it straight, I tried making a cocktail with it but couldn't drink that either. I don't know if I got a bad bottle but this was undrinkable, the only other time I have smell this horrible smell it was from bottle of Captain Morgan white rum. I don't like wasting food or drink, but I had to flush this one down the drain.

Not much to say it's sippable, moderate complexity. Considering the price it's good enough.

To me, this tequila has a lot of little elements of good tequila poking thru in the aroma and flavour. Extra points for value in Canada. Decent and sippable, but not great.

What can I say, our club drinks many brands and mostly Anejos. We were looking for a budget rail and finally tried this Rep. Wow! This is an amazing product for the price ($41/1.75 liter). We love this neat at room temp. Toss it in the freezer and it gets even better The only negative I have is I don't think it adds the same upgrade to a margarita as 1800 rep. But, certainly is as refreshing out of the freezer as Hornitos. Which is to say this is enjoyable neat on a summer evening.

Better than some on the same shelf. Raw and cooked agave, vegetation, butter, clay, caramel and some vanilla. Sweet arrival with some agave, caramel, vanilla and oak on the development. Medium viscosity and a medium to short finish that is drying and oaky.
