Earthy tones with smidge of cut grass and raw agave

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.

Great bargain repo, in my opinion the blanco is slightly better. But would buy and drink this again in a heartbeat. Cooked agave still comes though but you definitely get the barrel notes.

Nose: cooked agave, prominent ethanol, slight minerality and citrus. Taste: cooked agave, pepper. Finish: cooked agave, citrus, oak Not quite drinkable as a sipper as the alcohol presence overwhelms the other notes. Good amount of bite going down, that dissipates quickly. Not very complex. This would go in the mixer category for me. But hey, I picked up a 750ml bottle for $18.99.

Very bland on aroma and flavor. Not horrible, just nothing really remarkable or memorable.

Overall, I think this is pretty similar to the blanco with some additional sweet caramel, oak, and yeast notes on the nose and palate. I’m a huge fan of both and I think they’re an amazing value! You won’t find better production methods for the price.

Full aroma. Prominent oak and sweet on the nose. Some fruit scent of ripe black cherry and smoke, spice. Taste: Rich agave, citrus and cinnamon or allspice. Good on its own and fantastic in a fresh pineapple margarita.

I'm not a big fan of whiskeys or bourbons or any barrel aged alcohol so I was kind of biased with this one. That aside, I still think it was decent especially for the price of just around $25 for the Repo.

Nice nose of citrus and oak. Citrus, agave, oak flavors with a mild hint of vanilla. Fairly simple straight forward product. I could sip it neat, but would most likely use it in a cocktail.

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.
