Aromas of cinnamon spice, oak, vanilla, caramel, and some alcohol. The flavor is mild and lightly sweet, with notes of oak, vanilla, and butterscotch. Vanilla and oak on the finish, with some agave, as well as a lingering heat. A decent reposado overall.

Nose is very pungent of agave,baking spices, dried apricots,pepper Taste is similar. Banking spices from the agave, caramel, fruit, earthiness, black pepper Let this one breathe for a little and it really starts to open up. The caramel/ light vanilla flavor last all the way throughout.

Aroma : Cooked agave, oak, black pepper, and a sweet (but not tart) fruitiness akin to apple or pineapple. Taste : Sweet cooked agave with oak, black pepper, red grapes, vanilla, and butter. Light oils and fair bodied texture. Finish : Medium in length with stronger pepper and vanilla.

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.

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.

Baked agave, oak and caramel. Rich, smooth and well balanced with a finish that lingers.

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.

Similar flavor profile to the blanco. An odd taste on the finish.

Nose is cool. Like a sweet lemon zest with a hint of caramel. I taste like a ripe earthy fruit. Not sure exactly how that sounds, but it’s how it tastes to me. Finish is smooth with some pepper. Good stuff.

Don Pilar's reposado is a excellent value at $42. A fruit forward reposado with plenty of cooked agave and a smooth mouthfeel. Aroma: A punch of fruit (apple, pear, red grape skins, pineapple) up front. Cooked agave, vanilla, oak, and black pepper. Inviting, yet mellow. I love the nose. Taste: Light sweetness, mild oilyness, and a black peppery warmth. A defined oakeyiness, cooked agave, and balck pepper up front. On the back end i get some faint fruits (black cherries and orange citrus), vanilla, and cinnamon. Finish: Medium to long. Mildly sweet and warm with a bit of nutmeg spice.

Coconut fresh agave taste. Combined with the reposado aging, carmel, butter, and some spice make for a well rounded tasty sipper.

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
