2021 El Tigre | I love that the field El Tigre is in Atotonilco and as far away from La Alteña as has ever been harvested with the exception of the recent Cerro Grande. The whole profile is different than what has been released before as the agave have been grown closer to sea level than others at 1875-1900 meters. There have been several harvests from fields around 1600 meters but not for some time, last in 2014. Sugar levels were 33% when harvested and it all shows in aroma, flavor and finish. Aromas of sweet citrus as in Clementine oranges, roast agave, some light barrel notes of oak and caramel translate well on the palate with some pepper, creamy agave and natural agave sweetness.

2021 El Tigre | The first reposado produced from the new Los Alambiques Distillery. Nose: Aroma of a freshly milled oak plank. Light jackfruit, strawberry, green apple and tangerine/grapefruit. A gentle floral waft. Warm spices: sweet powdered ginger, a kiss of cinnamon. Moist earth and minerals. Flavor: First sip brings chewy viscosity, brininess and feisty pepper. Next, subtle salty licorice and caramel undertones. The warm barrel spices noted in the aromas, play nicely into the tasting profile. Bold agave sweetness is the central player on this stage. Just an inkling of bitterness on the finish. I normally prefer the Platas in Ocho expressions. But I think El Tigre benefited from a couple of months in the barrel.

2021 La Ladera | Nose: Fruity (tropical) and fresh. Almonds, mint and thyme. Oranges and grapefruit rind aromas. A subtle marriage of barrel/baking spices. Petrichor. Very cohesive nose. Flavor: Round yet robust flavors. Mouth filling. Balanced pepper presence. Toffee and almond cream. Hints of cocoa and molasses.

2021 El Pastizal | Nose: Greeted with cinnamon spice and a warm agave embrace. Some mineral ‘snap’ to the nose. Dusty earthiness. Nearly ripe pineapple, citrus and orange peel. A hint of candle wax. Flavor: A soft vanilla backdrop to the prominent agave entrance. Baked pineapple. Silky with salt and pepper accents. Honey/butter/caramel opulence. Finish: A touch of molasses and vanilla. Leaves you with a warm and peppery glow.

2021 El Pastizal | Cooked agave, wet earth, brine, and caramel nose with a toasty caramel touch in the finish and slight lactic taste. Reminds me of early Ochos with its agave forward profile.

2020 La Loma Nose: Fruity and lightly spiced. Green peach, pear, pineapple, lemon, and lime pith. Light cinnamon and finely ground pepper. Ripe agave and a passing whiff of minerals, and peanuts. More of a dry aroma than sweet. A somewhat subdued aroma profile. Flavors: The spices bring more zing to the tasting experience: principally cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg. Semi oily vanilla and heat envelope the tongue and back palate. Creamy marzipan with a sprinkle of dark chocolate creep in. Citrus notes, perhaps oranges and grapefruit zest. Finish: Primary departing impressions are creaminess and heat.

2020 Cerro Grande | Bottle 6118. Recent releases have a stamp near Carlos' signature denoting the Ranch and it's altutude above sea level, in this case 2290 meters, making it the highest harvest to date. 7 year old agave grown at this height and stressed for that much time have a lot of character that is brought out by the master distiller and left intact by the 8 week 8 day aging typical of Ocho Reposado. Citrus peel, black pepper, wood spice from the aging and a ton of cooked agave. Long lasting mid tongue finish from ethanol and some lingering sweetness. Find some.

2019 La Laja | Nose: There was a surprising initial hit of bourbon barrel. It receded rather quickly, bringing on pear, pineapple and orange aromas. Followed up with celery seed, caraway seed, nutmeg and cinnamon. Vanilla and toffee for the wrap. Flavors: Pepper and cinnamon heat that fades. Sweet and oily on the palate. Some herbal nuances, and citrus. Buttered caramel corn dusted with cinnamon. Flavors are a tiny bit muddled.

2020 Cerro Grande | Nose: Lemon and lime zest. Orange sherbet. Tart green apple. Gentle mineral and earthy aromas. A hint of black pepper and cinnamon laced vanilla. A suggestion of flowers. Flavors: Quite a divergence from the citrus and fruity nosing experience. Upon tasting, mellow barrel spice heat and robust black pepper build in intensity. Heavier coffee, dark chocolate and caramel appear. Toasted hazelnuts. Round and velvety in the mouth. Finish: Salt and pepper and creamy desert qualities in a medley. A kiss of almonds as it fades out.

2018 El Bajío | Love the Ocho. Citrusy nose, slight sweet undertones, light pepper. Over all a pleasant Reposado to sip

2018 El Bajío | Nose: Initial aroma of green olives that faded as I gave it a chance to open up. It doesn’t have the slight metallic sharpness that I found in the blanco. Green, grassy, herbal, pear?, a minty note and caramel. Some sweet spiciness teasing to come out. Flavors: Brown spices do emerge, fiery pepper, oily caramelized agave. More sweetness than the El Bahío blanco - but that is kept in check by the pepper and cinnamon. There is a touch of bitterness in the pepper. Finish: The green olives make a brief reappearance. This is a tiny bit strident, tummy warming tequila.

2018 Las Presas | Nose: Pineapple, mandarine/lime, light nuttiness, butterscotch and a spring-like floral aroma. Some earthiness. Molasses? Flavor: Almond paste, brine and pepper, filberts, creamy and silky toffee notes. Aromatic barrel spices. Anise emerges midway. Agave unabashedly holding its own in the mix.

2018 El Vergel | Nose: Some subtle spiciness, tart apple, green pineapple, cinnamon and a floral scent. An earthy mineral note. Flavors: Medium weight. Feisty pepper notes: hot white pepper and a jolt of jalapeño or serrano pepper fire. The heat dominates the show. Letting it breathe awhile, brought only minimal secondary notes to my attention. Trace citrus, vanilla, fennel and earth.

2014 La Magueyera | Agave for days! Great nose, agave, pepper, vanilla, cinnamon with a hint of citrus. The flavor has a nice pop of agave and pepper flavor with more cinnamon and caramel. Just a touch of citrus throughout that really makes it pop. Another gem from Carlos Camarena. The agave shines.

2017 Las Aguilas | Real subtle aroma and good taste and real balanced finish. At nose: light smokiness, neutral aroma between agave and oak. At taste: Light oakiness at first, then a light pepper strike. At the end, at last, some agave is spotted. Not so complex taste. Finish: Good body, good creamy/oily body. Real balanced finished between character and smoothness.

2013 Los Fresnos | 2013 Los Fresnos. Aroma: butter, green banana, vanilla. Palate; apple, cherry, caramel, vanilla. Finish short without much flavor.

Aroma : Cooked agave and caramel here. There is also a minor amount of oak, and some cinnamon as well. Taste : Cooked agave predominates here, especially since this is so close to the minimum legal aging time for a Reposado. There is some caramel here too, and a lemon/vegetal creamy character that I haven't seen before. Finish : Medium/long lasting with more oak influence and some spice. The primary thing that stuck out to me here was the dominance of cooked agave. This paired very well with the unique vegetal character of this tequila.

2017 Las Aguilas | Nose: Celery, caramelized agave, lime peel, minerals, a fleeting note of butterscotch and the slightest scent of geraniums. (Which are actually pelargoniums.) Flavor: Spicy green peppercorns, honey cinnamon graham, creamy almond caramel, coffee, and tannin tingle on the sides of my tongue. Semi oily. Finish: Pepper, anise and faint butterscotch. Mouth filling experience. Revised upward on 5/10/2019

2014 La Magueyera | Excellent tequila. Strong agave and vanilla in the nose. The oak is not overwhelming on first taste. Nice round character with a balance of agave, vanilla, hints of oak on the palate. Warm welcoming finish. Bravo to Carlos Camarena & team. This would convert a whiskey drinker without question !!

Tequila Ocho 2016 Puerta Del Aire Reposado- Light & Tasty

This 2016 single estate Reposado is very light all around, but has a complicated and exciting nose. Take the time to find all the aromas. There isn't a strong flavor profile, and it has very little wood presence, which is the point of showcasing the terro
