Tasted at San Diego Tequila and Cuisine event

Starts with a complex and beautiful medley of dried fruits, in particular figs, apricots, mangos, and banana, as well as cooked agave. The flavor is light caramel coupled with honey, with continuing notes of dried fruit and agave. On the finish, a delicious burst of agave and dried fruit, with vanilla and cinnamon. An elite class tequila.

Otherworldly flavor on first impression. I will have to dive deeper to determine what I'm tasting. I've never experienced it before.

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.

Aroma: I get dried fruit and citrus- orange and lemon off the bat. A pop of melon that quickly fades behind vanilla, butterscotch, oak and cooked agave. Flavor: I get orange and stewed fruit. I get a nice bite of alcohol that gives a nice heat and tingle. Oak. Cooked and fresh agave toward the back end and a little brighter fruit flavor. Candied orange and lemon. There’s a hint of smoke. I don’t get the same baking spice that I got in the aroma. Finish: nice. Citrusy and tangy. Leave a little tingle and numbness. It’s got a bit of bitterness on the back end and through the finish. Overall: amazing. I get a little something different every time I drink it. Lots of layers and complexity. I sill pick up agave despite its 5 yrs in a barrel. It’s fruity and tangy and citrusy, which I really like as opposed to leaning toward more whiskey flavors. Savor it. This is a really great expression.

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 would be XA if it was aged in smaller barrels, fresh cooked agave flavors with beautiful notes of caramel, vanilla, a little spice, smoother than smooth. Perfectly balanced. Hard pressed to find a better tasting tequila

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!

On the nose it starts with a light oak, citrus (orange) and subtle sweet agave. Flavor has light oak, honey, slight orange, some vanilla and cooked agave. Finish is medium to long with an odd but enjoyable lingering semi-sweet, smokey bitterness. As it’s namesake it’s definitely rare for a tequila aged 6 years to have such light complex flavors and aroma, its definitely the massive wood pipones that allow the minimal contact with the wood and give it lighter overall notes but very enjoyable. Compared to its brother Gran Reserva Reposado it’s just as good but with a huge price difference. Outstanding and rare, a must for collectors.

The aroma is gentle and inviting. It's agave, wood, vanilla and very fresh. It has a fantastic mouth feel. Really good reposado!! It very agave present with incredible wood notes. I am a fan!

Smells like vanilla or honey. Amazing smell flavor is thin, tastes like fresh cut young lumber, dug fir or pine. Not much finish to speak of

Typically when a tequila has this much sweetness it’s usually from an additive. Which in my opinion makes this tequila very impressive as it is additive a free. It has so much flavor. Even after six years of aging there is plenty of agave on the pallet. $200 is definitely a lot but if you can afford it definitely get it.

I didn't love it. I love the history and story but I'm more happy sipping the regular Reposado. Soft on the nose and palate with minimal barrel notes coming through. Little bit of sweetness on the finish

Wow! The barrel does not overwhelm the tequila. But imparts such smoothness and flavors that enhances the regular Blanco.

El Tequilino Reposado rare is one of the best reposados I've had the pleasure of sipping. Just amazing, but not particularly budget friendly ($195 @ Sip Tequila).

Wow! A delicious pour. Sweet, chocolate, coffee flavor is what I get. But the finish is all agave. It’s so good.

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.
