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 !!

Of all of the different expressions from Tequila Ocho I've tried so far, this has been my hands-down favourite! Roasted agave is front and centre in both the aroma and the flavor. No additives, no colourants... just pure tequila. Ocho starts in stone ovens, is mill shredded, and distilled in stainless steel... all in an effort to make sure the process imparts as little influence on the pure agave as possible. This reposado has been aged the bare minimum so that the wood leaves only a slight presence, which I grealy prefer.... colour is extremely pale straw. The finish is lingering and smooth..., mouthfeel is slightly oily without being cloying, leaving me wanting more! Having seen the process of making Ocho Tequila at La Altena and having met both Tomas Estes and Carlos Camarena, I am an unabashed fan of the brand, but this one stands out for me! THIS is what a well made tequila should be!

The cooked agave come through in the aroma with some vanilla and caramel and a bit citrus and fruitiness but I also get a slight (soapiness) aroma of solvent. The finish leaves a slight bitterness and aftertaste but goes away rather quickly. Also has a bit of alcohol. This year and field is not as good as other years, IMHO.

Not like any other repo I've had. In fact you'd think it was a blanco not just with the taste but also the colour. I believe they use barrels that have been used a lot. The aroma is, in fact, quite addictive. Excellent drink and great value. Oh, and Thomas Estes is one of the the nicest blokes you'll ever meet.

Delicious. The best way I can describe this one is that it tastes "yellow". Round, fruity, maybe some banana. Clean mouthfeel. It's got a richness to it.

This is a very over-engineered up front flavor with a nice finish. Rocinante is not offended by it at all. Quixote on the othe hand feels like someone dropped a jelly bean on the drink last week and now I'm left with the consequences.
