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.

Wonderful, sweet nose. Caramel aroma, some roasted nuts. Not as impressed with the taste. Small hints of honey. Finish is bold, like coffee. Rich and long lasting raw agave presence. Full bodied finish and somewhat oily.

Very nice reposado, smooth and tasty sipper. This tastes like a high quality tequila. But this one lacks the full depth, complexity and earthy agave flavors that I prefer in my personal sipping collection.

Very solid sipping Reposado. Smooth buttery, caramel flavor. Tase much better neat than on the rocks. Slight alcohol aroma but still a good finish. I prefer this over Patron Reposado.

Price value of course in Mexico! You get the bite of a tequila but the velvet silkiness of a nice Reposado.

Smooth and oakey, great for regular drinking. Toasting and top tier mixing. notes of caramel and a lingering earthy flavour.

This is considered the “House Wine” at our house.

Nice agave and citrus smell, but nothing overly complicated. Mouth feel is good with some bite and an average finish. Overall a very straightforward reposado, just nothing to wow you.

Comforting nose of butterscotch and almond. Then comes cinnamon, spices and vanilla. Agave still peaks through over light oak. Flavors more subdued than the nose, with some pepper and bitters.

Not the most exciting finish but an easy sipper

Greenish clear. I had to ask to make sure I was being served what I asked for. A: Vanilla ice cream, cooked agave, grass T: Creamy texture, a big-bodied blast of smoothness and spice. Explodes with natural flavor and spice. I think this is the form of love itself! Chased a cheese enchilada with this and it's agave heaven. Tastes like it was made with God's candy. Finish: long. pleasant numbing mouth feel that rounds off the spiciness and makes me feel like I feel like I experienced true perfection. Goes nice with heavy food. There is no reason to fight or hate in a world where love like this is possible.

Nice nose with caramel, nutty flavors and smooth finish. Not too complex but a good sipping tequila. Nice nutty middle. I really like it, not too strong in flavors.

A good repo and one that I will keep on my bar. One thing about Don Julio is that there whole line has similar flavors and I can usually recognize them blindfolded.

From a blind test. Some yeast element like un or under cooked bread. Doesn't taste that way but dominates the aroma. Not as evident in a 2nd blind tasting I gave this the 3rd highest score of 6 reposado tequilas.

Lovely sweet aroma, hints of butterscotch and cinnamon. Full, complex body with layers of agave, caramel, and vanilla. It finishes with a hint of pepper.

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.
