Nice agave on the nose. Very easy to drink. I may be in the minority on liking this one but I think it's pretty enjoyable and easy to sip
Vegetal, raw agave ..... no barrel or signs of aged flavor .... low key sipper and good for mixing
This is a very interesting tequila. Lots of vanilla cake batter on the nose, some ethanol when you get deep into the glass, some agave and vegetal notes. The flavor is very surprising, I thought it was going to be a vanilla cake bomb but the nose definitely doesn’t fully translate into the tasting. I get raw agave, a touch of vanilla and oak, it’s at a nice sweetness. Lingering is a very interesting spice note, reminiscent of cinnamon or baking spices. All in all, I’m very pleased with this, definitely a highly competent reposado. Something agave lovers can enjoy while also being something interesting to show to a non tequila drinker.
I expected not a lot, and it didn’t disappoint. Unlike others, I’m barely getting anything to identify in the nose. A hint of agave but also a slight funk and maybe an extremely slight touch of sweetness. Not getting any barrel notes. Mouth feel is weird. And the finish... Starts a bit harsh. No sweetness. Then a bit of heat. A blend of black pepper and cinnamon. It ramps up and then calms a bit for a long peppery finish. For cocktails maybe, but sipping, not so much.
Didn’t care for this . Unpleasant plastic/rubber aroma that does dissipate a bit but not totally. Bit of cinnamon as far as flavor but still got a bit of that rubber.... not much of a finish.
Fresh green agave flavours
La Gritona Reposado is distilled by Melly Cardenas at NOM 1533 in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. This repo is aged for 8 months and then bottled in a hand blown bottle made from recycled Mexican Coke bottles. The nose is great. It’s full of green vegetal agave, minerals and some slight white pepper. It’s nose is more blanco than reposado but I’m a blanco guy so I love it. I first taste fresh agave and pepper followed by bright citrus and then a pleasant medium finish. It’s a great tequila but it’s missing some of the usual reposado characteristics such as sweetness and slight oak. I’m okay with that. Overall this is a great tequila. ¡Salud!
Nice aroma with agave and oak upfront along with a bit of floral and mint following. Thin, watery mouthfeel with strong cinnamon flavor. Finish is medium-long. This is a nice, easy sipping reposado. No complexity in the flavor - pretty much one-note. One other thing, this one has a unique bottle. Glass bottle shaped like a canteen with raised glass lettering and a flip-top/swing-top stopper. 03-02-2018
Has some bitter notes on entry that hang around mid tongue during a long lasting finish. This has a strong musty cheese presence as it fades to that bitter finish. Interesting as a counterpoint to all the sweet manipulated crap currently in the market.
Plastic bottle on the nose almost masks the cinnamon. Let it rest and the plastic starts to fade and agave, light floral, and sweetness come through. I happen to like natural sweetness in Tequilas and I enjoy the finish it has some spice in it.
There's a plastic like aroma thing that's throwing me off. Slight cinnamon but the plastic smell spoils that. Pine in the aroma too. After a while, when it opens up, the aroma turns to a very strong sour cheese thing. Flavor is also too sweet for me.
Slight defect- plastic smelling, and a rough finish. Updated rating 2023.
Cooked agave on the nose
Aroma: Strong, alcohol Tastes like a blanco Smooth is ok. Burns less than others when sipping. I would not buy this for sipping, but I would use it to make margaritas
Nice reposado, well balanced , agave is there some baking spice , a nice little sipper
This is great, authentic tequila that really impresses my non tequila drinking friends. Not an agave bomb. I wouldn't even believe it's a repo if it didn't say on the bottle, more like a blanco. super light, but very enjoyable. Nothing like my high rated tequilas but very refreshing.
noise: not strong at all. but you can smell the agave. taste: not to bad, used for shots. salt at the start. lemon at the end, goes down smooth. will definitely add this to my "go to" tequila. Will definitely buy again.
I heard good comments about this one, but it’s not for me. The finish is just unpleasant.
Pretty decent, light Repo. Doesn’t appear to be aged more than 1 year. Young. Enjoyable straight or on rocks. If you enjoy a lighter side Repo, less oak, this is a solid choice
Nice smell good taste. Harsh on the back end.
Tasted in a paper hotel coffee cup. Nose. Salty slight agave hint of wood Taste. Carmel and slight barrel again with cooked agave Finish. Gentle almost untraceable with just slight tingle. First Tequila I have tried from this distillery. Not bad masses would enjoy I think.
the first bottle i picked up ended up breaking because the latch snapped down when closing and broke the neck, had to exchange it and have only closed the bottle once since (placed napkin between latch and bottle), scared it’ll break again, wish it had a normal cork
Vanilla and citrus
Heavy pepper on the back end. Easy sipping over rocks. Highly recommend if you're avoiding celebrity brands and looking for a sipping tequila in Low/Mid price range.

Fair to middle of the road Reposado expression. Not a lot going on here. Some cooked agave, a little artificial sweetness detected. A little flat in the mid palate. Finish your s fair
