On the nose, a touch of vanilla, ethanol and a bit of agave. Something vaguely chemical, not good but not overly offensive. On the palate, very bland. A little sweet but to be honest, it mostly doesn’t taste like much at all. It’s “smooth”, and doesn’t taste like tequila, but rather “tequila flavor”, if that makes sense. I can see why people buy this for shots, but it’s definitely not great.

This rating is for vintage 2000 El Jimador Repo Plenty of agave , not too much oak . Solid sipper . ( pre diffuser )

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.

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

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.

It has a mysterious flavor that I can’t describe and don’t like. Maybe floor polish?

Mexican 35% abv. version, lote: 22215M2001, bottled on 03-08-2022, tasted on 10-25-23. Color: yellow. Aroma: light cooked agave, vanilla with bitter note, light wood note, slightly minty, slightly earthy, unnatural sweetness dominates. Palate: confirms aromas perceived, vanilla sweet earthy sensation dominates. Finish is medium, vanilla sweetness with earthy notes persist.

Weak aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Not a sipper - margarita-bound…

Good for shots but not a sipper. There’s notes of vanilla and caramel. Wouldn’t recommend but if you’re out and want shots then this would be a decent choice!

Nose: caramel, heavy burn, vanilla. Taste: a little oak, pepper, but too medicinal. Mouth-feel is okay, the finish is short and bitter. Not enough agave to note on it's taste profile.

Nope. A cheap mixer at best. Gives traditional tequila a bad perception. Diffuser product. Waste of good glass they bottle it in.

Sugar, Alcohol, Oak, and hint of cinnamon after sipping. Decent choice if you're on a budget or want to mix.

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.
