Very sweet because of the the French oak. A lot of spice znd sweetness and a good amount of heat on the back end. If you like a real sweet, spicy and hot tequila....this is perfect for you

Nose: Cooked agave, vanilla, green bell peppers, grapefruit, and a hint of lemon. Palate: Creamy mouthfeel with notes of cooked agave, a heavy dose of vanilla, toasted oak, tellicherry peppercorns, green bell peppers, citrus (grapefruit, lemon oil, orange zest), mint extract (peppermint, spearmint), cinnamon, and caramel. Finish: Long and lingering with a ton of vanilla, pepper, and mint. Agave syrup and more cinnamon, caramel. A hint of milk chocolate.

Special release with an out of the box blend. Beautifully hand crafted. Will see more limited additions of this repo as years go by. A fuller bodied Reposado than the usual Fortaleza Repo

I’m a big Fortaleza advocate and this one blew me away. I’m not a Repo drinker until this came along. Huge vanilla, citrus and baking spices aroma. The nose is big from it being over proof. It’s big taste of agave and some bourbon like vanilla. I can’t say enough how big of a tequila this is from being taken straight from the still and put in barrels. So happy to have a second bottle to sit on. Easily worth the price of admission.

Nose has cooked agave, oak with light hint of citrus and carmel. Medium slightly oily body and has a nice oak peppery taste. Nice long finish with burst of pepper/wood spice.

Aroma: cooked agave, pepper, cinnamon, and citrus make for a a wonderful nose. Great when uncorked and even better with some time to breath. Taste: cooked agave, caramel, some barrel spice, and then notes of that cinnamon and citrus again. Sipped a few ounces and was blown away. Would recommend any tequila enthusiast to try this one. At $100 some people may say this isn’t a great value, but this Repasado punches well above its price point and is a treat. It’s also a collector’s item and worthy of any bar top.

Huge Fortaleza Blanco fan and this Winter blend is better than most. Oak, citrus, and pepper on the nose with a creamy soda mouthfeel and taste. A great addition to the family but need to do a head-to-head Reposado comparison to see if I’ll be chasing it in future... if it can be found.

Aroma : Cooked agave, mint, citrus, vanilla, caramel, spice, and oak. Oak is a different breed here than the usual with Fortaleza, which is probably due to the French Oak treatment. Taste : Agave, oak, toffee, almond, vanilla, black pepper, butter and orange flavor. This is spicy, sweet, and somewhat bitter, full bodied and oily. Finish : Long with more emphasis on the french oak and black pepper. Another fantastic offering from Fortaleza. If you can find this, stock up because there are only a few thousand bottles out there.

The nose jumps out of the glass! I smell bright citrus, agave, vanilla, caramel and slight spearmint. I first taste a sweet oily cooked agave and then orange citrus followed by some black pepper and alcohol (91.4 proof / 45.7%) There is a medium finish of cooked agave, orange citrus, white pepper and some slight oak. I paid $92 before tax in San Antonio, TX. This Reposado is a blend of tequila aged for 6 months in American used oak barrels and tequila aged for 11 months in new French barrels. It’s a mature and complex Reposado. It’s worth the sub $100 price. !Salud!

the nose is Rich with baking spices and is floral. also find some vanilla and light oakiness to it. the taste started with a creamy mouthfeel and a rich taste of cooked agave followed by slight fruitiness with pear and cherries detected and then a hint of vanilla and chocolate/butterscotch. the heat carries it through on the finish with a slight honey sweetness. this is a very enjoyable Reposado!

Wow. Fantastic. Agave nose and taste. Pepper, chocolate/ cinnamon. I hope I don’t drink this all before winter ends.

Sweet and pungent on the nose with barrel spices, the French oak is evident. Light vanilla notes, cinnamon and all spice with nuanced oak notes, and caramel that blends with agave before moving into a medium heat finish. Complex and the cask strength is low key.

Cognac meets agave forward Reposado, this is exactly how every evening should end!! I get that bubblegum sweetness I love so much from this brand married with spice & pepper from the oak....absolutely absurd how good this is!

Toffee, minerals, agave, and slight French Oak (bitter) chocolate notes give this high-proof, special reposado a lot to talk about. Packs a punch with a black pepper finish, balanced by sweet natural agave flavor. “A” for innovation at Fortaleza, which normally uses only American Oak (this is a blend of French & American). If you’re looking for something boozy and tasty to get you through the holiday season, this is it. Note: if I was a high-proof drinker I would’ve rated it a bit higher.

Tasted Blind at Quinta Don José. 8/19/2019 Revisited and refined notes: December 16, 2019. Nose: Round with barrel spices. The French oak is very much in evidence. Cedar shavings, dynamic blend of spice and fruit. Butterscotch and orange peel. Flavor: Full mouth spice that blooms in intensity. Prominent citrus note. Creamy toffee offset with spicy white pepper. The caramelized agave is over the top good. Finish lingers with both oak barrel influences strutting their stuff.
