Alcohol, pepper and citrus on the nose. Strong cinnamon, cedar and alcohol in the mouth. Peppery, alcohol burn on the 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

This tequila has subtle agave and not much pepper in what I would call a smooth finish not nearly as sweet as is the trend with repo these days. I get more oak than anything else in the nose taste and finish. Under 30 bucks makes it a good deal. The first repo I’ve preferred out of a snifter as opposed to a rocks glass.

A/B'd this Cazadores rep and much preferred the flavor profile of the Altos, even though it has less intensity of flavor and more lingering burn. Not going to dethrone Espolon as my fave budget reposado but I wouldn't kick this Altos out of bed either. Definitely would put it in a cocktail.

This is a smooth shot, nicely balanced. nothing deep or complex, but none of the harshness or medicine-ness common in bottles with a $20 price tag, either. For this price, it's a superb value.

Excellent value for cost. By 1.75 L. Excellent for mixing drinks

$38 for 1.75L. Big agave nose oversells what's to come on contact with the cake hole. Floral, cognac, musty wooden ship hold, spice. Weak finish. No added complexity that I look for in a reposado over its silver line. Quite fine but not quite nice.

We tasted this in a blind taste test and both chose it as a top or second choice based on flavor and finish tasted neat. Was very smooth with a nice clean finish. Recommended!

Some good characteristics here, but overall unrefined. Good entry point for sipping tequilas as there is little investment, but there is a good amount of cooked agave aromatics to entice the un-initiated.

This is a real bargain Reposado with agave shining through a smooth finish.

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.
