Same nice nose as the Blanco but takes a drastic dive into a Brazil nut/hazelnut dry finish. I don’t like this very much.

Nose: It has an old fashioned tequila aroma to it - not totally smoothed out for the masses. Caramel, dark cherry, agave and a note of pine resin. Flavor: Sweet agave, a pepper bite, and vanilla. Finishes medium long. Not a tippy top tier tequila, but very solid.

Sazerac Imports bottle from June 2008. Nice mouth feel on entry along with some nice agave and spice notes. Somewhat buzzy finish from the barrel spice, white pepper and alcohol. Nice budget sipper.

Distinct aroma of clay with some oak but with an unpleasant rubbery smell that significantly disrupts any enjoyment of the other aromas. Really nice flavor with a great mix of sweetness and spice. Finish is medium length. 8-19-2016

This is such a great tequila for the money. Drink it straight, or use it in a cocktail - you can't go wrong.

Pueblo Viejo Reposado $22 USD (Saratoga Wine Exchange) NOM 1103 Overall: Solid buy. Traditional flavors. A great mixer and can do double duty as a daily sipper for those watching their wallets. Nose: Not great. Cooked agave, charred oak, carmel, and cooked black pepper. As Remy Newland noted, there is a pine resin like aroma. Taste: Enjoyable. Light oilyness with a slight salinity and a solid peppery warmth. Semi sweet cooked agave, black pepper predominate. Carmel, a touch of cashew, vanilla, and baking spices, and oak. Very simple, but easy to sip. Finish: Medium to long mix of warmth and sweet tones that makes you want to keep sipping.

It really burns. Not really smooth.

Initial feel is smooth and then hits with alcohol burn. Flavors feel artificial and hard to detect. Almost fruity, not earthy, maybe a syrupy flavor akin to vanilla. This works as a mixer but on its own is something you grab cuz you finished the other bottle

Sweet flavors. Traditional citrus, lime and agave. One helluva a value IMO.

I read some of the reviews and agreed somewhat except that to my taste it deserves a little more credit. Soft, very pleasant taste and smooth ending. I drank it straight pair with salt and lemon and I’m sure it’ll taste better with sweet lime and sea salt.

Nothing bad here, but nothing really good. Just fine in a mixed drink. House tequila at Quinta Don Jose in Tlaquepaque.

Cooked agave and caramel on the nose. Taste of vanilla, herbs. Smooth finish.

Taste has caramel, vanilla and even butterscotch. Zero alcohol burn. How is thus a $14 tequila in Mexico?

This it pretty solid for a 20 dollar reposado-bought for margaritas and mixed drinks- but actually not a bad sipping tequila - nicely surprised - highest value I’ve ever given- 9- buy this if you want a decent VERY reasonable reposado!

Weird but a good weird: banana, clay, semi-sweet agave finish is mediocre.

I was hesitant about this one. My dad's old favorite go to. Beyond the low price point this is a very well made Tequila (NOM 1103) with everything I'm looking for.... sweet light oak, light cinnamon, caramel and a buttery feel. This is really good as a sipper. Or mixed if that's your preference

Bottled in March 1998... recent find and really good. Lots of Cinnamon and Pepper, some sweet vanilla finish!

Revisited as budget mixer and will definitely buy again. Actually not bad sipping. Added a few points.

Decent. Need to re-rate this one. Definite cinnamon and oak flavour.... Fairly strong cinnamon. Some sort of nutty flavour. Someone described it as "buzzy" and I agree. Tasty and a good bargain. An interesting tequila. This could be sipped all night warm in a glass till I fall down. Excellent tequila. Cinammon and oak and vanilla. Agree with "not a top tier but very solid comment". Very nice long lasting oily finish. Update January, 2021. Likely my third bottle of this. This is one of my Go To's when I want a solid oakey and cinnamony reposado. The buzzy flavour I think is nutty (Brazilnut or Walnut). Similar to Sangre de Vida Corazon El Blanco but more cinnamon and oak. Some times I am in the mood for this. Yummy stuff.

Sweet heavy pepper and oak, bitter, boozy “old school” flavor. I taste some filler thankfully it's very minor. It's an excellent reposado for the price.

More, we are not tasting this NOM, thanks to a lovely man who is schooling us on what good tequila tastes like. This reminds me of my way back from grade school, past a buffalo pasture, a sod farm, and lots of corn fields. The tequila my dad would have liked, to compare to his Riesling.

The Best Tequilas for Under $30

Why does good tequila have to be so damn expensive? It doesn’t! Even though there are a variety of tequilas at wide-ranging price points, buying a cheap tequila can feel like a risky proposition for many people.

Review #169 - Pueblo Viejo Tequila Reposado

My first experience with Pueblo Viejo. I've heard good things and I'll try pretty much anything for $20 and under.
