Sweetness on the nose sweet potato mango vanilla and a hint of oak. Agave comes through as well Less sweet on the mouth with a gentle finish - a quick bite that disappears quickly

Muted aromas of sweet agave and vanilla. The taste is slightly sweet, with light notes of vanilla and oak. A dry finish of oak, agave, and vanilla, with some heat.

Reviewing side by side with the blanco, very happy to have the opportunity to check both out at once. Aroma: Sweet, soft agave. Light touch of vanilla that is getting a lot stronger as i let the tequila sit. The citrus note from the blanco is still there but it’s mixed with the vanilla in a very neat way. Little to no ethanol, notably. The faintest bit of butterscotch, and I keep thinking of the skin of a cantaloupe. Barrel spice and agave in the empty glass. Palate: Much more rounded hit of agave, not muted, but softer. Definitely sweeter than the blanco. There’s a tiny bit of vanilla that comes through, and the cinnamon note is much less pronounced for me. Interestingly, the Barrel aging doesn’t seem to be contributing a lot of the typical Barrel notes i expect, it seems to have mellowed everything and melded the flavors together. The citrus blends with the vanilla for me to the point where they’re almost indistinguishable. Very, very interesting.

Nice fresh aroma. Lot of vanilla and wood. Had to come back to it after letting it sit and open. Much nicer the second time. Beautiful agave aroma and nice flavor. Update: This is quickly becoming my favorite repo. A real treat that I look forward to sipping. The more I sip, the more I love it.

Now this is fun! Loads of butterscotch, toffee, and caramel on the nose. Cooked agave lurks behind but is present. A pop of minerality, limestone, on the nose at the very end. Taste: butterscotch, then agave, then wood. Finish: Woody, but warm and long. Bravo, digging this on a snowy winter night!

El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva The nose is light but pleasant. Cooked agave and some light honey. I taste cooked agave, with some slight cinnamon and then white pepper. The finish in nice. It starts sweet and then the pepper comes in and lingers. It’s nice and balanced. It’s light in the palette and has a light body but it’s balanced and there isn’t an offensive note. It’s well made. Salud!

An excellent repo, great value for this perfectly made Reposado. Well balanced, shows cooked agave flavors along with a very smooth vanilla finish. Very impressed

Nose: Nice spicy nose marries nicely with the round ripe fruit aromas. Light oak, barrel spices, a faint yeast note and caramel. A sweet cider nuance. Flavor: This delivers an initial robust pop of pepper, cloves, cinnamon and anise, which is reined in by vanilla and caramel notes. This has an herbal note or two - perhaps cilantro.

Aroma was oak, whiskey, cooked sweet agave, caramel, a little bit herbal, sort of creamy and a pinch of smoke and vanilla. The taste was sweet agave, some pepper, fruity, honey, caramel, herbal and spice, with some heat at the front end. I really had no problem with this Repo as it was nice and somewhat silky, but with a noticeable bit of heat.

Barrels, pipones, AND Oak chips? This has a ton of spice and pepper in the mouth as well as some agave lurking behind all that. Assuming this is rested in barrels and then in the pipone with the oak chips added as it can stay in a vessel larger than 600L for an indefinite period of time and still be a reposado. More than 2 months and less than a year only applies to containers smaller than 600L. This is quite golden in color rather than the pale straw of the regular reposado in a side x side. Quite bold and flavorful. Thanks Old Town. rating 777 ;-)

Still agave forward but the oak has robbed this of my favourite parts, it’s still a great tequila but my consumption will be reserved for the Blanco.

Caramel, slight melon aroma with sweeter taste than the blanco. Still a little thin but I enjoy the spicy finish.

Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Definitely pleasing and the best part of this tequila. Sweet tasting but simple—not at all artificial. Finish too clean and quick for me, though, and that's where it lost some points. However, even though the packaging has changed, this remains a legit tequila brand worthy of respect.

Starts and ends hot. But no burn and it’s a tasty heat. Pepper. Some cinnamon. Vanilla and oak in there too. Smell and taste are consistent. Finish lingers awhile. Leaves a little numbness on the tongue but that fades after a minute or two. Nice to sip on a cold day.

Wasn’t a fan of this reposado. It has a bitter taste after drinking it and I keep getting like a cognac presence. Maybe I’ll have to revisit.

Drinks a little hot for 40% ABV, has a slightly bitter note in the taste. It’s unique and if I were more patient and let it breathe I’ll bet it opens up into something even better. Good value here in VA at $45, but for a few bucks more there is always some excellent Ocho blanco to be found. Will revisit.

Smoke is prominent on the nose, followed by agave, cherry, and apple. Smoke hangs around to the palate a bit with a buttery agave. The barrel in this repo has a honey aspect to it before fading to an OK, but a bit weak, finish.

Tasted Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva. Heavy agave taste, but I didn't like the bitter initial taste and then the heat aftertaste. Not bad, but wouldn't buy it again. I still drank half of bottle..maybe I'm just spoiled after tasting their Repo Rare, which is one of my favorite!

Special repo. Great bargain at $55. Nose: Caramel Cinnamon Vanilla Sage Cherries Oak Over-ripe banana Tasting sweet agave right out of the gate. Getting vanilla and caramel along with some cinnamon. Nice burn.
