Hints of vanilla and Carmel, more of an alcohol taste than I would have expected and not in a good way.

I’ve been a fan of Don J for 20+ years; 1942 is 1 of my favorites; this Reposado has a very light, subtle nose w/hints agave & honeysuckle; slight alcohol burn across the tip of the tongue; across the back, just very light notes of agave, not a ton of character; overall, a solid value for your backbar & a good entry level tequila;

Aroma : Vanilla and butterscotch. Small amount of oak. Taste : Agave, caramel, vanilla and butterscotch. There is some oak here as well. Light black pepper. This is a sweet Reposado profile, but it seems a little thin bodied. Finish : Medium length with more emphasis on oak and black pepper.

Good, though somewhat mild flavour, and a reasonably soft finish.

A very drinkable premium reposado. I enjoy it much. There is nothing fantastic about this and as said below not a tonne of character. But nothing at all wrong either. Just plain yummy. Caramel and oak. Slight vanilla and agave.

Pleasing aroma with agave, vanilla, spice, and some oak. The flavor is complex but not too complex. You can taste agave, oak, caramel, and a faint sweetness. The finish lingers just enough. I will drink this again.

Plenty of butter on the nose followed by vanilla. Finishes smooth and then a bit of pepper comes out. A small amount of citrus is present throughout the entire process.

Tasted blind. This is a solid reposado. It’s almost too refined for me. Super easy sipper with no roughness around the edges. Notes of vanilla, oak and caramel come through. Well balanced, but a tad shallow. It’s an easy drinker and i can see why it appeals to the masses.

Very nice agave aroma with some spice. The taste is really nice with lots going on. The finish is a bit harsh with little flavor.

Caramel and nuts (maybe almonds), vanilla and agave with hints of wood on the nose. Oak, cinnamon, agave, spices, vanilla and caramel and more nuts on the flavor and finish. A good sipper alternative on a warm afternoon with a sweet and light pepper finish

I started out as a repo boy. Now I’m the Repo man. Which means that I’m spending a great deal of time drinking myself to sleep in a fit of orphan-crib-reclaiming-induced depression. But I’m definitely not doing it with Don Julio Repo, because it can’t hold a goddamn disposable Remembrance Day candle to the Don Julio Blanco. Like a retarded younger sibling trying to keep in step with his square-jawed, quarterback, Harvard-bound older brother, Don Julio Repo falls short by every available metric. Still, it has a certain quirky charm. 6/10

Great use of oak, I can still taste the same agave profile of the Blanco. Thin and gentle, I can see why this wins people over.

11 Things We Think We Know About Reposados

Until recently, we hadn’t cared much for reposado — tequila that has been aged in oak barrels from 2 to 12 months. It seems too middle-of-the-road: like blanco (no barrel aging) without the bite, añejo (aged for longer than a year) without the flavor. But

Review #135 - Don Julio Tequila Reposado

I can't believe that it's taken me this long to try this tequila. I like the blanco...and the anejo and 1942 are two of my favorites. It was worth the wait.
