This was the only tequila available on my plane, so we gave it a shot. Smells like petrol and additives with similar unpleasant taste. Undrinkable, for me. Sad since it was solid back in the day (late 90s, early 2000s).

Pepper and chemical nose. Hot in the mouth. Odd sweetness. No agave presence.

This is the 1999 pre-diffuser

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

vanilla, spices and small oak hit your nose. no burn and a little smoky. I'm a fan of the taste. it rests easy on the tongue. citrus, pepper, and sweet oak combine into a subtle and gentle taste. the finish is quick and clean.

Hints of wood, vanilla and agave with stronger flavors of alcohol and spice. There is nothing wrong with this tequila. The problem is, there is nothing to bring me back.

Nose: Smoke. But not like s’mores at the campfire smoke, more like couch from a house fire smoke. Mix that with some wet grass. Taste: Like licking the couch. However, it does have an interesting sweet note to it that balances out the smoke. Alcoholic bite. Finish: The smoke lasts a while.

My “go to” tequila. It’s not great, but it’s good. And it’s cheap. And you can sometimes even find it in pubs. Better than the Sierra and Jose you’ll find in most bars, and more palatable than half the Patron range that cocktail bars seem to love. Good enough to sip, robust enough for cocktails.

Strong alcohol from start to finish. A little better than blanco but not a sipper for me

Really, the only thing saving this tequila, is the peculiar finish. With a strong peppery start and middle, the finish throws a real curve ball. After the pepper dissipates you’re left with a pleasant feeling of vanilla and burnt agave. However, the finish is not quite good enough to make you forget the horrible beginning of your journey into the el jimador reposado line.

Still the best inexpensive 100% blue agave tequila

Definitely better crafted than the blanco but it feels more like added sugar as opposed to actual barreling.

Strong alcohol aroma and flavor throughout. Little bit of oak and agave on the palate, but overpowered by the alcohol. Finish tastes like a hospital smells. Didn’t enjoy this at all.

Now for a bottle under $20, average, you get a tequila that does require some dilution. Very harsh, but for the money you can expect that. If you’re a fan of a very agave tasting tequila, some lemon and grassy flavors, then this is a good tequila to bring for a pregame for a night out, or for having at a get together. It’s a very simple tequila, but it is my go to when getting a tequila for those atmospheres. I’d recommend it for those, easily a mixer, or enjoyed with ice cubes unless you can enjoy the pure agave bite that it comes with. Good tequila, but you have to look for the good in it as initially it is very harsh which can be hard to overcome.

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

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.
