Cooked agave and minerality on the nose….some oak but not overly present black pepper and some hints of floral ….agave on the mouth with minerality …. medium finish

Aroma: Agave, and a sharp note that reminds me of sourdough bread. Palate: Surprisingly sweet agave, and vanilla bean. Butter, minerals, and citrus. White pepper on the finish. Lingering clove or baking spice note. Verdict: Another stunner from 1579, Terralta might just be the best of the bunch for me. For the $42 I paid for this, it’s almost a steal.

This was a Mexico bottle at 38°/76 proof. The lower proof may be why my score was a bit higher than those that rated the American version. It’s delicious at 38°!

I ranked this one pretty high but it hit me just right. Very light tinting on this due to the reuse barrels. The nose is full of cooked agave, baking spice, oak, honey, and a faint earthy floral note that kept my face in my glass over and over. Well water influence I'm sure. On the palate the agave and oak dominate, feeding more baking spice. Black pepper, white pepper, wet earth, citrus, vanilla, and stone fruits are all present. The aging managed to leave plenty of alcohol bite without being a flaw- just enough to know it's not messing around. Medium dry finish. Another banger from EP!

Like this repo from an outstanding NOM. Light, sweet agave and vanilla flavors. Well balanced, true to the spirit

Cooked agave, vanilla, caramel, slight oak on the nose. Some floral notes as it opens up. Cooked agave comes through in the flavor with oak, pepper, a bit of mineral. Finish starts buttery and ends long and spicy. One of my favorite reposados without a doubt!

Tons of agave on the nose, unfortunately the oak exposure has muted the flavour that I love so much. This is still an exceptional tequila and anyone will make anyone smile once they try it!!

TMM Reposado Blind Tasting

Vivacious nose. Ripe full agave notes with floral undertones, sweet spices, ripe peaches, and a touch of pungency. Minerals with a touch of edginess. Flavor: Pepper heat, tons of agave, fruit, vanilla, butterscotch and almond cream. A cider sweetness and light salinity. A big hit of anise. Finish lingers. I could drink this all night. These guys makes outstanding juice!

This was a really well balanced Reposado that has a ton of cooked agave character, a thick and oily mouthfeel and a long finish with a great balance of barrel influence and agave kick. The bottle didn't last long.

I was really excited with the nose but was let down with the body and the finish. Lacks a punch and the finish is surprisingly short and underwhelming.

Wet earth, hint of jalapeño, vanilla nose. Nice mouthfeel and minerality. Naturally sweet -Too easy to drink! This is my regular go-to.

Very spicy and a logical extension of the blanco presentation. Lightly aged with oak elements evident this is an agave explosion in your mouth. Not for everyone, this is a big punchy, in your face repo.

Clean agave on the nose. Light earthy- green notes. Agave, brine, cinnamon, and black pepper notes on the palate. A well balanced repo. Not very complex but is an easy sipper.

Aroma of cooked agave, citrus, some faint oak. Palate follows with a bit of warm spice giving way to a long finish of black pepper.

A was a bit disappointed with this reposado. Very light flavor profile throughout. I was expecting more like the other tequilas from this distillery, ie. Pasote and G4.

Very easy sipper here. Super approachable. This is the bottle to recommend to friends new to tequila. Nice, prominent caramel, vanilla, and oak aromas. Gentle mouth feel with great, sweet agave flavor. Medium-fast finish with no bitterness.

Very nice caramel on the nose, great spice balance on the palate. This loses points because it loses so much of it’s identity compared with the blanco. Very oily thick and chewy though! I respect this NOM so much, this is only the first pour from this bottle so maybe it’ll improve with time. The finish takes its time and almost reappears with a strong lingering pepper. Two or three other repos I’d go to first but still very nice. Update: not two hours in and now I’m getting oak and honey and smoky pineapple on the nose. I am also getting some of the blanco’s signature after all (palate into finish)! Ok so I was a bit hasty. This is a complex juice that deserves time. Let it open up and give it some time!

Nice repo, but lacked complexity that I anticipated from NOM 1579. I'm looking forward to the Blanco.

It has a memorable aroma of cooked agave, butter, caramel, vanilla… overall sweet & elegant. Delish.

Mild, not highly complex - but very interesting nose-it offers subtle agave- not too sweet of a sip- nice to my tongue - and very reasonable price too- this whole “line” has impressed me - only have the anejo to still try

The aroma has a nice blend of agave, vanilla, caramel, and oak. The palate keeps evolving with cooked agave and subtle barrel tannins, as the finish flows into white pepper and minerals. A perfect medium for blanco and whiskey lovers.
