This is a quintessential highlands tequila. It has the notes of unripe everything (apple, pear, pineapple, agave and fruit). I think its the nature of the terrior, more than the cooking method or process. But that is only one man’s opinion. I am getting a lot of oakiness from the barrel on the nose, as well as vanilla, honeysuckle and orange blossoms. For the palate, i am tasting cherries, mild cognac, wood, asparagus, pleasant heat, pepper and agave.

Fresh and crisp aromas on this 6 month reposado with a hint of light creamy-ness in the palate but yet a good amount of cooked agave.

berries on the nose belies a charred, woodsy palette and smooth quick finish

Nice nose of baked agave, caramel and raisin. Easy going in, soft flavour profile of agave and light barrel notes. A softly spicy, long and warm finish. A very solid repo but a bit too light for my tastes.

Glass: Straw color. After coating the glass, small tears take a while to form before quickly rolling down the glass, leaving a few pearls hanging. Aroma: Let this open up for a couple of minutes to let an initial alcohol aroma to dissipate. Green pineapple, green agave, green apple. I presume these “green” notes are from cooking the agaves in an autoclave. Light oak and pepper. Entry: Buttery and slightly sweet, pepper presents quickly. Flavor: Buttery, sweet and peppery, soft agave notes. The sweetness is like that of a white fruit such as apple or pear, but does not really come with its own flavor. The butter notes are from the virgin American oak rather than baked agave. The pepper quickly consumes the experience. Finish: Big pepper with a little sweetness and agave for moderate length. Moist with some dry tannins. Conclusion: The agave flavors are fairly basic and “green” due to baking the agaves in the autoclave. The barrel notes are pleasant and what you might expect from virgin American oak. This is a worthy profile and welcome addition to the Don Pilar lineup. If you want to try a repo that doesn’t have whiskey/bourbon notes, or the chocolate/coffee notes you would get from virgin French oak, check this out. Priced at $37-40, it’s an excellent value.

very soft nose. everything from entry to finish is too soft, which is unfortunate because what's there is quite good.

Nose - Agave and oak spice Taste - Sweet agave with barrel spice and light tannins. Little bitterness and some great bourbon notes from the barrel Finish - Fades to creamy custard notes from the caramelized agave with the added oak.

Don Pilar Reposado – “Worth the Wait”

For many years, Don Pilar offered a blanco, añejo and extra añejo. “Donde estas, donde estas, Reposado?” Fans of the brands (like us) were excited when we heard that one was on the way, and we wondered how long it would be aged. Would it be a light-touch
