Delicious, almost on par with Terralta Reposado for me. I tend to like the more mineral offerings of El Pandillo and this is a great expression of that. 8-9 months reposado but, as with many offerings from El Pandillo, it just adds a perfect layer of wood, vanilla and a buttery feeling.

Just too much black pepper in the finish. Geezus its Serrano pepper heat

Nose: Sweet, spicy, caramelized agave nose. Butterscotch, almonds and a touch of citrus in the backup choir. Flavors: Extremely light oak treatment. Tons of pepper (white), and spice, with a lingering anise note. I’m picking up some rye notes. Some herbal/vegetative nuances - sweet pickling cucumber? Rich caramel oily mouth feel. And some brininess. Another home run from #1579! Thanks JG for the birthday gift!

Aroma : Cooked agave, black pepper, and some peach. Classic Pasote minerality here as well. Taste : Lots of cooked agave with some minerality, but not quite as much as the Blanco. Some pepper and spice here as well as some light peach. Oak is noticeable but doesn't stay on the palette long. Oily, but not necessarily a "full" mouthfeel. Finish : Medium/long and prolongs some flavors like cooked agave, and plenty of black pepper and cinnamon.

Just a touch of oak, it’s nice to see a restrained reposado. Tons of bubblegum and marshmallow, this is a crowd pleaser.

Lots of orange/tangerine. Starts in the nose with some alcohol, carries into the body and through the finish. A tiny bit muted all the way around.

mildly fruity nose, sliced ripe berries. way more oak than the light color and nose would indicate. sweet too, like honey syrup. balance of sweet bitterness remains through finish.

Glass: Very pale straw color. Lots of large tears form, streaking the glass with thick legs, leaving constellations of pearls hanging. Aroma: An initial bright green “funk” dominates. Then warm baked agave presents, along with the green/vegetal spice/funk and black pepper—a subtle mixture of mints, peppers and citrus. I’m also finding grapefruit, with notes of minerals, brine and vanilla. Entry: Smooth and slightly oily. Coats the palate without sticking to it. Nice spice on entry that grows into the finish. Flavor: Very agave-forward. Baked agave with a touch of sweetness, like a kind of peppered gingerbread cookie, but probably not as sweet. The minerality and brininess are still there with a little tang to it, like olives. Bright spice and mineral notes, with a big pepper kick. The huge flavors from the blanco have been rounded out. Where the blanco felt like something very bold and completely new, this reposado feels like something a bit more familiar. This is aged for 6 months in American oak barrels that are, on average, 40 years old. So all of the tannins and strong oak flavors have been depleted from this wood, adding only hints of vanilla. Finish: Initially buttery, then dry in the center palate with a wet mineral effect on the sited. There is a bit of heat going down, as well as in the retro-nasal, but the heat feeds into the peppery effect on the palate providing a general warming feeling. Moderate to long in length. Conclusion: A proud tequila, a bold repo—hip, funky, spicy, interesting—and an excellent value for this quality at $45. Felipe Camarena is one of the very best distillers in the business. A third generation distiller, he is growing his own agaves near the highest growing altitudes within the denomination of origin. With his dual engineering degrees, he has likely developed the most innovative and sustainable production facility at his El Pandillo distillery in Jesus-Maria.

Powerful and structured (cooked agave, caramel, vanilla), with minerally richness and savory citrus/spice flavors. The distinctive use of deep well water throws a mineral punch with a white pepper finish under layered by a core of subtle baking spices. Anise/clove make an appearance. At some point reminded me of a orange zest buttery scone. Slight briny/mineral finish.

Agave, minerals and light citrus on the nose. Taste profile is delicate but delicious with agave, citrus and a faint taste of the rainwater/minerals. Light mouthfeel but very satisfying!

The nose on this is sweet bourbon, lots of agave and the drying minerals. Tastes of brown sugar, baking spice, almost maple. Leaves a drying sensation from the mineral water. The finish is a bit disappointing, a bit bitter but mellows out eventually.

Nose is interesting, the agave reminds me of the smell of the steam that surrounds a distillery coupled with pineapple and caramel. This is a different repo in its own right, certainly earns a place on the shelf. I like the Blanco better, only because I feel the precious rain water flavors are masked by the barrel. Still though, it’s done right. The finish is all oil and pepper, nice long legs in the glass, it’s quality. Pasote is a brand that earns respect surely, I just feel it can’t quite crack the “90” rating level. However the price is very fair.

The nose is light but very pleasant with aromas of cooked agave, vanilla, and clove. There is also some subtle herbaceous/vegetal aromas like oregano, thyme, and bell pepper. The taste is a bit bolder, with flavours of black licorice, cinnamon, sweet potato, cooked agave, and even a bit of smoke. The finish is long and slightly sweet with a lingering black licorice flavor. Paid $85 Cnd and would highly recommend this reposado.
