On the nose, I’m immediately getting a funkiness, like a malolactic funk. Cooked agave, then vanilla. Oak, then a grassy note. A little bit of alcohol, but not too bad at all. Some cinnamon, and spices. That almost almond like aromatic note from the blanco is there but it’s rounded and fades into the medley of the aromas. On the palate, Sweet cooked agave, baking spices, vanilla. This is sweeter than I anticipated. The cinnamon comes through, and then a grassiness. Slight bitterness on the finish, and an almost cherry like note that creeps up from time to time. Overall, it’s very good, though I prefer the blanco. I recently had Don Nacho blanco and it’s a strong competitor for my absurdly good budget buy, I’ve got the reposado as well and I’m curious to see how it compares. Overall a very good tequila, and at $23-25, this beats out Cimarron, Altos and Cabrito for me, hands down. It loses a few points on taste and finish because of the bitter note I’m detecting, and I’m holding back on a 10/10 value because it’s not as sippable as the blanco imo. Otherwise though, Delicious, additive free, tasty. What more can I say?

I really enjoyed this one. Nice aroma, with some butterscotch notes and hay, as well as some cooked agave. Taste was nice for me. Silky texture and nice notes from the barrel, going into some rich honey notes. Hopefully additive free. I read some comments talking about heat and harsh finish. For me, this is a well balanced tequila, with great character but without any bitterness or astringency. For the price point, this will be on my heavy rotation list.

Aroma : Agave, cinnamon, caramel, and grass notes. Taste : Light agave, and peppery spiciness. Caramel here as well. There is also a bitter/acidic note that goes along with the agave/caramel combo. Finish : Medium length with more peppery spiciness and some alcohol heat.

I don’t like or dislike this tequila, it’s middle of the road for me. Smells just like any other tequila, nothing exciting to report. I definitely prefer the juice pre oak.

Nose: Agave, cinnamon, ripe dark cherries and berries, “Juicy Fruit” gum aroma, and a bit of a lactic barnyard presence - Flavor: Pepper, a caramel/agave taste, with cinnamon, cloves and a grapefruit tang. Some bourbon/whisky oak notes. Sits nicely on the palate. A great economical option.

There's just not enough price difference to get regular Arette instead of the artesenal. This mixes fine, but artesenal are clearly superior.

The biggest detractor for me is the bitter finish, like dandelion leaves. It just overwhelms the very subtle hints of rosemary and mint, which you get at the very end. The rest of it isn't very interesting, so I can't honestly recommend it.

Smells great and tastes great in the very beginning and then the finish is a little rough. Then it smooths out and tastes really great again. Interesting experience.

Strong alcohol scent at first so I let it sit a while and then tried again. Second sniff was better. Sweet vanilla. Strong pepper taste and citrus. Was hoping for more agave in aroma and taste.

The aroma for me is perfect it reminds me of the blanco but with some complexity from the oak a sweet berry like smell possibly cherry the cooked agave is upfront, light vanilla hints with cinnamon. The flavor was complex again not as oily as I might love but I taste the cooked agave some citrus a sweet fruit and some great barrel character. Overall a great buy can’t beat it I may be bias when it comes to Arette I love all the expressions I’ve had so far I’d pay more for it without a complaint great tequila.

Markedly different from the Blanco, and I’m big on the Blanco. Curious to know the actual brand bourbon barrels used for aging as this comes out quite reminiscent of Glenmorangie scotch. Fans of that near non-peated dry scotch will love this. Notes of cherry, charred oak, orange, honey. Agave takes a backseat.

Very very smooth, aftertaste wasn’t my favourite, but the mouth feel during the swish was great.

For me, this is the weak link of Arette’s budget lineup. There are mild oak, agave, alcohol, and vegetal/grassy notes on the nose and palate. It’s pretty easy to drink but there’s not much character or complexity. I can see this being a good mixer, but in this price range I think Cabrito is bolder, cheaper, and overall a better sipping reposado.

Solid aroma, flavor orange blossom, a little vanilla… Tommy likely!

I never give ratings this high. This is by far my favorite reposado. Almost a maple scent on the nose. The taste is incredible. The mouth feel is so buttery, the cooked agave so pronounced and the vanilla/cinnamon so deep that I was convinced that they used additives. No glycerine or artificial flavors here just high quality work.

This Reposado bottled in Tequila Jalisco tends to take on more of the profile of a lowland tequilas being that it seems masculine almost reminiscent of a softer whisky or cognac. The agave is present, as well as pepper, vanilla, and the barrel. This is a decent profile of aromas and tastes for the price. I like to put it on top of a nice blended marg as a topper or even on ice. This is above average. Serviceable.. but no where near the top. A little too alcohol forward at times. Not a huge fan of the twisty lid but this is a bargain price at the right store.

Review #159 - Arette Tequila Reposado

My first try from the Arette line. I've heard good things about it...especially the gran clase, but being a reposado guy, I thought this would be the best first choice.
