Aroma : Cooked agave, oak, vanilla. Some pepper and cinnamon here as well. Taste : Some agave presence, caramel, cinnamon, not as much oak as I would expect from the aroma. Some black pepper as well as nutmeg and anise. Finish : Medium length with caramel, cinnamon, and orange flavor. More agave and very light pepper here as well. This doesn't have as much of the "green" flavor the Plata has, something I could do without, but I wish the flavors were more pronounced here.

I don't know much about tequila yet, but this is my favorite so far of the small number I've tried. The aroma is very appealing, the flavor is nice -- fairly mild but not so smooth as to be boring. Finish is clean and lingers for a little while. (Neat, in a Glencairn)

This Reposado doesn't come across as anything extra special in all departments: aroma, taste, or finish. Not saying it is bad, but doesn't really stand out as so good either. Aroma comes through with cooked agave, oak, and floral notes. Taste follows the aroma notes but starts to get a little bitter. The finish unfortunately increases in bitterness and leaves the bitterness in your mouth. The finish even tastes a bit nutty. Not terrible, but not one of my favourites. I would recommend this to a friend based on the fact you can buy it abroad (I live in Germany), and it is better than a lot of the other options at this price range abroad. However, I would not recommend the buy if you were in Mexico as there are just too many better Tequilas to buy there! I don't think it is even really sold in Mexico so much. I bought this online in Germany for 30€. NOM 1111

Oak, slight agave, spice, and vanilla on the nose. The taste is oak, caramel, pepper, and vanilla. The finish is spicy, peppery and warm. I paid $20 at Target. It was a great price for a nice reposado.

Strong peppery, agave and medicinal on the nose. Cooked agave, barrel spice and carmel in the mouth. Spicy oak, cinnamon and orange peel on the finish.

light agave and citrus aroma, agave, citrus, and light pepper notes. finish drops off quick and is replaced with alcohol. very little complexity.

Extreme spice and burn at first. Sort of lingers. Barely sweet at the end. Not a sipper at all. Margaritas when on sale.

Really punchy, I would definitely recommend this for making cocktails, it scratches an itch that not many brands do(boozy and agave forward).

there is something slightly green in the aroma for me. I also get pleasant oak/barrel notes along with vanilla and caramel. The flavor mirrors a lot of the aroma and is warm on tr he way down with a strong finish.

This is a bargain at $32. for 1.75ltr. It has a nice caramel, vanilla nose with a hint of brown sugar. There are floral notes along with plenty of cooked agave. This is one I will keep!

A friend bought it, a cheap friend, two bottles for $29. The taste brought memories of my miss spent youth when Cuervo was considered good.

this Reposado sucks. when I opened it I hated it the taste was awful and after it was open for over a month I like it a little better but I'll never buy it again.

A quality Reposado. Sweet vanilla foretaste with a pleasant, warm, peppery afterburn. A decent sipping tequila if you fancy a change from Anejo.

It appears that the taste of pepper is overwhelming and exceedingly strong

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.
