I definitely like this more than the blanco, and at $21-25, it’s very well priced imo. The cooked agave is there on nose and palate, that grassiness I get from the blanco is rounded out with a little caramel and oak. Decent as a sipper but very good in a margarita or Paloma.

Bought to try and use in barrel aging project. Paid USD27.99 in January 2021. Aroma is somewhat herbal, which is nice, but also has some alcohol, which is not so nice. It reminds me a bit of 1800 from a long time ago. The nose has some nice things going on, but also some undesirable characteristics. First impression is that this is a decent reposado, in that the agave is more present than oak, probably due to use of large casks and/or short aging period. Flavor is inoffensive and subtle, nothing wowing though. This could be sipped, as a result. Oak characteristics are minimal, but round out the harshness (not much) of the blanco. The price is right, but you also get what you pay for.

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.

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

I don't get why some esteemed fellows tequileros are so lenient with this juice. I could taste the artificial-chemical vanilla sweetness even when mixed in a Jamaica Marg. Not for me, I don't care at what price!

Aroma: This one is very briny. It almost reminds me a bit of an olive. There is also a hint of oak. Flavor: The flavor is a definite surprise. I was thinking it was going to be a bit salty but ended up being much more peppery. I also get a little hint of oak Finish: The finish is pretty mellow and not too exciting. It falls off pretty quickly.

This tequila is definitely delivering a bang for the buck. It is priced low enough that it could be used by bars in cocktails, but I can drink this straight with no problem. The aroma isn't bad, but it's not my favorite part of the experience. The flavor is just loaded with sweet delicious caramelized baked agave, and the finish delivers a long and pleasant creamy vanilla treat. I am shocked that they can create this level of tequila at this price.

Nose: A mineral smell and you can smell smoky agave with almost like an orangey hint maybe When drinking it there is an immediate but good smoky, peppery agave flavor. There’s sweet vanilla caramel hints. Very pleasant and complex for the price especially. The finish stays warm for a bit.

This is a nice value reposado. Cooked agave and vanilla on the nose carry over into the palate where I catch some honey as well. Further into the glass and I get fairly prominent salinity/brine. I get cinnamon spice and a slight herbal note on the medium finish. I'll mostly be mixing with this bottle but definitely an adequate sipper in a pinch.

Nose is ok, not much going on. Good agave presence but much prefer the blanco as this one just adds some spice and roundness to the taste but the wood, leather, spice finish is not wonderful. Solid, but will use it only in cocktails.

Something about this I just don’t like. I believe it’s the prominent black pepper I’m picking up. Smells better than it tastes.

A little better than I anticipated. I don’t think I’ll be sipping on it, it’s a little one dimensional but not a bad flavor. Nose is ok Flavor is sweeter than I expected but not overly sweet Finish is not great Overall, it’s decent and the price is a bargain. I’m sure this will end up in a mix drink

Comparable to the blanco, but certainly smoother. Again, I’d only recommend it for people new to tequila or for cocktail parties. Still, you could do much worse as far as introductions go.
