Aroma : Tropical fruits and cooked agave predominate here. There are some undertones of vanilla. Taste : Black pepper and spiciness with tropical fruits here as well. There is a minimal amount of agave and butterscotch. Finish : Medium length that prolong the taste notes but with more sweetness and less spice. This is a fairly unique Reposado. Here you trade off more traditional oaky notes with fruity ones.

A favorite Reposado of mine where the agave really shines through with oak and roasted agave notes.

Light in color with strong agave, earth and anise aroma followed by fruit, alcohol, smoke, butterscotch and honey. Flavor is very peppery, spicy, and citrus with hints of earth, wood , smoke and caramel. I think this is a complex tequila that deserves a careful look. Finish is peppery with anise, spices and earth with hint of vanilla. Oily taste lingers after finish.

Amazing earthy nose, makes you wanna jump in and take a swim. The only critique I have is that it fades off my palette too fast, I wish it was a tad punchier. This would be epic as an over proof!

Nose: Vanilla, pineapple, bright agave, a trace of ripe cheese and a hint of earthiness. Flavor: Peppery with baking spices and fruitiness. Some butterscotch notes and anise. Lote 004, new bottle revision. Just not quite up to snuff. An almost stale almond taste. Missing the old bright notes in nosing and on the palate.

Tasted blind Nose - Tropical fruit Taste - Sweet spicy fruit with some hints of agave. Not a normal reposado profile of wood and agave Finish - Medium lingering sweet finish

Oyamel Washington Street $13 half full bottle light up front with a strong finish. great aroma, with light honey on the nose. no burn or spice. much more pepper, and earthy herb on the tongue with a perfect touch of fruit sweet. great strong finish to end that reminds you why you drink tequila.

Aroma: Strong note of raw agave and cut grass. There is also a hint of caramel that gives it a nice complex aroma. Flavor: The flavor is very oaky with not much agave. There is also a hint of caramel on the finish. Finish: Nice long lingering finish. Pretty much exactly what I look for in a tequila.

Trying "Olive Oil' edition for the first time, the comparison with ETWLR is quite disappointing.

Subtle aroma of citrus and agave. Flavor begins with a nice peppery spice on the tongue and evolves to a more fruity flavor. The agave is still very present and not hidden by wood. A good reposado to sip and enjoy.

Hand selected estate-grown highlands agaves, cogoyo removed. Steamed in stone and brick ovens for 48 hours. Traditional tahona extraction. Fermented with only naturally occurring yeasts, no added yeasts or enzymes. Distilled in copper pot stills to 80 proof, no water added. Rested 11 months in used Kentucky oak bourbon barrels. Tasted after aeration. Thin legs. Pale straw color. Nose of green agave and a little caramel. Viscous and juicy feel. The pepper/spice sensation is mellow and distributed evenly throughout the mouth. Light agave and butter flavor with a little cinnamon kick. Smooth, wet moderate finish of pepper across the palate with some drier tannins toward the back.

Really nice cooked agave presence on the nose along with citrus, honey, vanilla, and a bit of pepper. Agave forward palate followed by sweet caramel, oak, and a really nice touch of dried fruit. Virtually no heat on the tongue and just a little going down, which leads to a nice, long finish. Overall a delicious reposado. Definitely a sipper - I tried it in a Tommy’s margarita, and although it was great I don’t think I could tell the difference between it and a cheaper repo (e.g. Cimarron). Highly recommend this tequila!

Aroma: Vegetal, with notes of sweet cooked agave. Slight citrus and vanilla. Taste: Smooth and slightly sweet and peppery across the palate, with light flavors of cooked agave and vanilla. Finish: Clean finish, with spice, sweet cooked agave and black pepper. Overall: An excellent, clean tasting reposado that leans more towards being a blanco.

Smoky on the nose, with an agave sweetness hanging in there too. Very naturally sweet on the tongue. Peppery, with a little strength behind the alcohol but not in a harsh way. Robust and lingering flavor.

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
