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.

the agave taste is delicious despite the stronger alcohol flavor

Tasted Blind at Quinta Don José. 8/19/2019 Nose: Round with barrel spices. The French oak is very much in evidence. Flavor: Citrus, butterscotch and white pepper. Finish lingers with both oak barrel influences strutting their stuff.
