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.

Caramel aroma, light. Oaky agave flavour. Short peppery finish

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.

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

I like the blanco for making margaritas but do not care for the reposado, even in a margarita. It has a funny, chemical (soapy?) taste

Solid sipper. Good compromise if you want the agave-forward of a blanco with more smoothness.

Very light color. Alcohol or maybe a light tequila agava aroma? Smooth flavor with the first after taste a little strong but smooth sipping after that! In fact very smooth and easy drinking. This could be my everyday tequila? At least one that is in the running.
