Weak nose, palate is mostly alcohol with a slight bit of honey. Best for mixing.

hoped for better....even iced....very harsh.... initial flavor was a nice surprise but was soon overtaken by the burn even cooled down. the price was right...but it's a mixer tequila in my book

this is one I bought for mixing drinks frozen margaritas etc. it works for that. I did a blind taste not knowing what it was and thought it was possibly a cheap whiskey. really not very interesting as a sipper a few more bucks will get u something much better for that.

Bottled in MAR 1999 this reposado shows why El Jimador was for a time the best selling tequila in Mexico. Too Herradura had to screw this up. Edited the score as there is no way to remove diffuser as a production method in the phone app so liking this and giving it the rating it deserves means raising the overall score for all diffuser product. That isn't going to happen. 02/07/2018

Not that bad, but there are much better out there. Price is low, but spend a little more and get a nicer reposada.

At least here in Mexico, this is not as bad as everyone thinks. The taste is ok, not much burn. I mean it tastes a lot better than José Cuervo Especial and it's cheaper and really easy to find everywhere. This should be the first option if you wanna mix.

Sad to say, but this once decent quality tequila has been completely ruined by Herradura's adoption of diffuser technology. Unless of course you prefer your tequila with an overpowering aroma and flavor of rubbing alcohol and astringents, with obvious additives to try to make the contents of the bottle more palatable..... What was once a decent tequila is now undrinkable.... Stay away..... you'd be better off drinking gasoline.

For a quick second my nose got hit with some type of dark caramel. The taste was a bit too metallic for my taste. However, there are worse tequilas to get stuck with so I’m not going to completely dismiss this one when in real need. At least as a drink mix haha

Blind taste test I rated 2/4 it’s a good value but has a harsh finish, maybe camphor..

Bright grapefruit/citrus on the nose. Taste is likewise light and bright. Finish is short, with lingering smoke. Not at all unpleasant. The price was reasonable @ 34$ for 1.75 liters. Bought for margaritas and it'll do just fine.

Not a sipping Tequila, maybe good if you kill the taste with a Margarita mix!

Not bad but not great either. I personally taste a hint of a mint flavor which doesn't go well with a margarita.

Not the best aroma and very bad finish. Not a sipping tequila but works good for mixing at a reasonable price ($20).

5 Essential Tequilas for a Well-Stocked Bar

Some people, when talking about essential bottles for a well-stocked bar, leave out tequila (unlike, say, bourbon or scotch). Some people think that the only thing tequila is good for is making margaritas. Some people are wrong.

Review #237 - El Jimador Tequila Reposado

Remember the days that El Jimador was a bottom shelf mixto situated betweem Montezuma and Durango? Those days are over. It's been a 100% agave spirit for a few year and still has the great low price.
