Agave sweetness comes through with some citrus on the front, and remains throughout. Interesting profile unlike any previous Ocho releases.
Subtle agave nose. Lots of agave on palate. Minimal barrel notes, the agave shines here. Subtle finish with minimal heat. It’s an easy sipper for sure. Price hurts the overall score. It’s even better once it opens. Such an easy sipper. Top 5 easy for me. It’s a must try.
Very tannic compared to the usual Ocho Reposado which I attribute to the new barrels used once for Widow Jane Bourbon. It grew on me as I sipped more.
In my top 3 reposados. Cinnamon and mint on the nose. Incredible mouthfeel. Pecans. Cinnamon. Spearmint. Anise. Long and incredibly balanced finished. Another big winner from Ocho
Aroma is fantastic, with plenty of agave, fruity pineapple, wet earth, and cinnamon. Slight oak and more spice follow the flavor profile to join fruity agave notes. This 91 proof packs some punch and a mid-long finish, more for tequila lover’s than newbies. It may be lightly aged but the barrel is doing its job. Very nice combo on this excellent Reposado!
I thought was exceptional. Top 5 Reposado’s I have ever tasted. Light whiskey notes but the agave shines here. Delicious
Bottle #8501 45.5% ABV Nose: First pass before swirling: Fruit, baking spice and light oak. Several swirls in, the individual fruits begin to reveal themselves: green pineapple, banana, passion fruit and sweet Crispin apples. There is an alluring sour-sweet aroma… Nose tingling minerals and a whiff of dry soil. A bold nutmeg, cinnamon, and green cardamom medley, marry with the fruit adding layered richness. Flavors: Butterscotch, imbued with light oak barrel notes. The spirited spice medley frolics around the palate. Punchy black pepper slowly recedes and melds with the fruit and honeyed agave. Vanilla, hints of orange pith and dark berries. A little salinity and a mouth watering, buttery texture. Trace tannins present. Finish: Tenaciously holds on to the pepper and spicy elements through the finish - but with a creamy almond cream fade out.
Bottle Number 195 Agave, light cinnamon and a touch of oak on the nose and palate, followed by black pepper and some tropical fruit and spices, notably pineapple and a touch of clove. The extra alcohol content kicks in on the finish with a lingering light oak and roasted agave with some orange zest and herbal components. I’ve yet to find any Ocho I didn’t love. This one is exceptional!
Nose: pepper/cinnamon, vanilla, oak, mineral Taste: sweet caramel, heat on the roof of my mouth, vanilla, so smooth, great mouth feel. And the finish lingers A most excellent Repo!
Been on my watch shouts since release. Overpaid, but had to have it. Not disappointed, oak & apple on the nose. Cinnamon & butterscotch across the palate, slight pepper & agave on the backend. One of my favorite reposados! The only weakness is the price, if you can find it for $70 USD, it is a great value.
Off the nose you get that pepper right off, mixed with oak. On the Palate I get a sweet vanilla taste that goes well with the agave sweetness
Sweet agave, cinnamon, minerals and a hint of whiskey. Amazing reposado. Great price.
LOT RLA-034WJ bottled on 30/08/2022. Color: very very pale yellow. Nose: vanilla, wood spices, cooked agave, alcohol almost unnoticeable. Palate: cooked agave sweetness, vanilla, wood spices, good balance, but the agave taste and aroma have been masked by the wood spice & vanilla notes. Finish is medium in length, vanilla, wood spice and light agave sweetness persists.
While I'm a huge fan of all Ocho products, this just wasn't my favorite. Those that are into whiskey will like this a lot and will disagree with my review. On the nose there's definitely agave, but there's also some barrel and spice notes, as well as alcohol that dominate the aroma. While this expression is not as high proof as their single barrel añejos, it smells and drinks a tad harsher. On the palate, I get an instant agave kick that is then overpowered by oak, bitter chocolate, spices, ginger, and alcohol. The finish is long. To me, the chemistry of the tequila and the bourbon barrels just wasn't there.
Pepper and Oak almost right away with subtle notes of Vanilla on the back.
Lot RLA-034WJ 30/08/2022 Bottle No. 382 45.5% ABV Damn, this is outstanding. Initial nasal impact is warming with a slight prickle. Aroma keeps building as it opens up, leading with sweet cooked agave, crisp fall apple, limestone, baking spice, cinnamon, apricot, caramelized pineapple and rounded out with whiskey and fennel. Generous heat and a buttery mouthfeel. The sweet cooked agave still shines, as with all Carlos Camarena aged expressions. Add to that a healthy dose of baking spice, light oak, brine, pecans and orange with black pepper evenly sprinkled throughout. The long finish is amazing, highlighting the pepper, apricot and whiskey barrel notes while still staying very creamy. Overall impression is that the agave is still the star of the show. This reposado is clean, sharp and harmoniously balanced. An exceptional tequila. I bought this for $54, so my value rating was higher than most, but even at 75-100 bucks, this is a top reposado and should be in your glass. Very glad this particular bottle is my 300th rating on TMM.
Pepper, cooked agave, cinnamon
Aroma of out of the horno cooked agave, brown sugar, leather, light spices. Flavor is sweet up front with brown sugar dissolving into agave, light oak, cinnamon, white pepper. Finish is a tad hot and comes as a suprise after such sweetness but aligns well. Very balanced, not over oaked, bourbon notes come out the more it opens both in the aroma and the flavor. Really nice and well done.
Purchased from 2 different stores. If could get under $100 value would increase. Special bottle though
Lots of citrus, clean finish.
This is an amazing pour. I love the sweetness, but not overly sweet. The barrel gives it a deep complexity. Not even a hint of ethanol. Perhaps the best repo I’ve ever tasted.
Very good, a little overhyped and overpriced but an interesting one to have on the shelf. Well balanced sweetness and agave, a little pepper and citrus. Finish is quite nice. Probably won’t buy another bottle at $120 but I will enjoy the rest of this one with friends.
A nice amount of barrel influence but the agave is still there. Can smell the minerality and taste the whiskey influence. Well done.

Lot one- This is amazing!! That's all I could say. This has everything I want, in a light Repo... but complex at the same time
