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.

Delicious... well balanced Reposado. Just enough oak influence without taking anything away from the roasted agave.

The flavors in this tequila don't stand out as they do in some of the toptier tequilas but still this is very good. You can taste the mineralality, flashes of pepper sometimes grapefruit which makes this very enjoyable.

Nose: Pleasingly subtle. Almost lightly effervescent. Ever so light dash of vanilla. Flavor: Have you ever licked limestone? You’re about to. There are more minerals in this tequila than in my rock collection. My geoscience thesis advisor would be more proud of this tequila than me. What is so fascinating about this resposado is how it explodes on your tongue and provides you with a strong vanilla and slight pepper nose that was so understated with just sniffing. Yet it is somehow so well balanced. Finish: The finish bubbles and lingers like acid rain on a marble gravestone. (p.s. I want my gravestone out of granite) Value: Not crazy expensive, but not cheap either. An appropriate value. Final: This feels very approachable. It stands up alone wonderfully. It could also be mixed in something like ranch water, but I would be hesitant to overwhelm it with another strong flavor such as a margarita. I found this a very cohesive profile.

Received two bottles of this for my 50th Birthday and so so happy. Excellent flavour and finish. I would place this above Fortaleza Reposado. Sorry Casa Fortaleza.

Surprisingly hot for tahona singlenestate. Decent aroma and mineral but lacks complexity. Could be a little smother.

Very sweet on the nose, soft on the tongue with a hint of oak and Vanilla, and a slight pepper finish. Overall pretty good, but nothing to write home about. I feel like it's missing that "wow" factor... No buyers remorse but probably won't buy again.

Interesting aromas, and smooth citrus flavour. The finish is enjoyably peppery.

Lot of earthy flavors, citrus aromas, very smooth overall. They give this tequila a different profile than a regular one, great tequila.
