Excellent "Reposado". By all intents and purposes, this being aged for 6 years as an XA in giant barrels aka pipones. it retains lots of agave then takes off from there. Citrus, figs, candy apple, cinnamon, pear, minerals, maybe even some lavender? Very floral. Interesting... A bit pricey. but I grabbed it for 89 with a quickie subscription to a service when it was 1st released as several of us did. Great score !

This Reposado is truly rare. It’s aged for 6 years but can’t be called an XA because it was aged in a vessel larger than 600 liters. The age shows in the mellowing and complexity of the spirit. I smell cooked agave and caramel, natural vanilla, dark fruits and hints of floral notes. I taste the sweet cooked agave and butterscotch. Hints of pepper and spice. The finish is nice and long. I love this tequila and I’m appreciative of companies willing to experiment and create unique rare tequilas. It ain’t cheap but it’s worth it! Salud Amigos!

Nose: Soft spicing wrapped around silky agave aromas. Cocoa, vanilla, and leather. A hint of spearmint. Some dough like notes. Trace cedar scent and a touch of sweet cider on the nose. Multifaceted nose. Flavors: A slight perfume/floral note accompanies the subtle fruitiness. Subdued spice and pepper heat. The vanilla and leather carry through from the aroma. Tasting this is more like a series of sensations, rather than the normal attempt at identifying individual elements. You ride pillowy clouds from one layer of impressions, that transitions to another layer of sensations, that seamlessly blends into the next... Finishes with all the finesses of a finely tuned symphony of strings and woodwinds. But sometimes I enjoy the crash of cymbals and some drama.

This was presented by Clayton Sczcech of Experience Agave and Tony Salles of El Tequileño at a venue in Seattle. Aroma was amazing but the flavor and mouthfeel are what set this apart from most other reposados today. Aged for 6 years in a 25,000 L pipon this has such a rich taste I wonder why more don't commit to producing in this manner. Agave, oak but not excessive due to the minimal contact with wood in such a large vessel even after 6 years. Finish is spice and agave with minimal alcohol. Nice to have this in the USA.

Tons of agave off the nose, hard to believe this spent 6 years in oak! So light and smooth considering aging time and pedigree, it retains agave foundation but has some unexpected fresh fruit notes on the back end. The ending is fucking delightful, takes a long time to drift away and the agave comes back around to say goodbye. An excellent extra Añejo(Reposado)!

This is just like the great Tequileño Reposado, but with more depth and complexity in both aroma and flavor because of the time it spent on wood. It spent 6 years in a large pipon. Pretty cool idea!

Muy delicioso!!! A finely crafted golden butterscotch-colored reposado. Aged just over 6 years in American oak pipon barrels (25,000 liters)… which is why this can't be legally called an extra-añejo (extra-añejos are limited to 600 liter barrels, for 3+ years). My guess is the larger “pipon" barrel imparts the oak influences in a more subtle manor than a smaller barrel would accomplish over the same 6+ year timeframe? Very complex, but less in-your-face. NOSE: The aromas are sweet agave, with caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, and light apricot dried-fruit imparted by the oak barreling. And a mild sweet citrusy note (i typically get mildly bitter citrus notes in blancos & repos). There are light vegetal and earthy notes, as well as light spicy notes that are reminiscent of a good rye whiskey, but thankfully less pronounced. There's also the prescence of floral notes in the background, very subtle. Mouth: equal to "the nose" with very satisfying full-bodied flavors. A nice touch of heat from my initial sip, but follow-up sips were less alcoholic-intense, with a nice drop-off leaving the flavors to finish-off nice and smooth. Very pleasant buttery mouth feel. And a first for me that I can only describe as a light “floral" taste in the background, similar to the subtle floral aroma. A very pleasurable sipper, indeed!

Very nice. Complex flavors. I honestly prefer the gran reserva anejo side by side and this is much more expensive. I’m also confused by the marketing of rare repo that is 6 years in oak. Why isn’t that just XA??

The smell reminds me of something good baking in the oven - like a pie. I get vanilla, sweet agave, and some spice. Very nice balance of agave, sweet citrus, a little oak, and a slowly increasing and fading heat through the finish. This is a really nice sipper! I paid $174.99, so the cost hurt my value rating ever so slightly, but I’m not disappointed at all.

Medium amber color in the glass with nice oily legs. Aroma of agave, oak and vanilla. Flavor of oak, agave and honey. Mellow, long finish must come from aging for 6 years. Pretty pricy, but a rare sipper.

Poured for me by the master distiller himself! The concept behind this creates a wonderful reposado. The larger barrel leading to less contact with wood helps calm down the oak and spice. Still plenty of soft, easy, mellow caramel and vanilla. The agave still shines through with the not-so-dominant flavors imparted by the barrel. An amazing balance for a truly amazing sipping reposado.

The nose is packed with butterscotch, vanilla, oak, and cooked agave. The taste is huge on the oak. Slightly bitter oak, but those sweet dessert notes balance it out. Hints of smoke, earth, and herbaceous flavours round out this complex reposado. The finish is long and bittersweet with flavours of baking spices (allspice and nutmeg), and a touch of bell pepper. Some might find this tequila to be a little over oaked but, even at $250 Cnd, I highly recommend this tequila!

Excellent. Agave, Apple, honey, vanilla, oak. Amazing nose. Great legs. No additives. 6 years in massive oak tank so large it can’t legally be called an extra añejo, and also imparts less oak than other XAs.

Pumpkin/gourd/mineral aroma. Earthy. Taste of peppery mint, agave, and light oak. The burn that the Blanco has is tamed and subdued perfectly by the pipones. Best suited for me as a fall sipper but this, my first bottle, won't make it past June. After a day or so it opens up beautifully and maple starts to peek through and joins the medley. I want to shout about it to friends but then I know if I do, they'll want to try it and I'm not sharing this one. :o)

Sweet aroma of agave, pear and raw pumpkin like the smell when you’re scraping out the seeds on Halloween. Not overpowering. Very unique. Flavor is sweet as well. Cooked agave, butterscotch with a hazelnut and pear finish. However, lacks a bit of punch at the end.

el hecho de que sea añejado en un pipon de 23 mil litros por 6 años, no tiene nada que ver con el sabor de un añejo por el contacto mínimo con la madera, podría decirse que este tequila fue resultado de la oxidación del agave por el oxigeno, este tequila iba a ser un reposado gran reserva pero termino estando alli por años, el mejor tequila extra añejo/reposado que he probado
