This review is for the Festival Foods bottling of this tequila. Aromas of smoke, pine, and herbs clear the way for light agave after opening up a bit. The flavor is medium bodied and somewhat oily with a fiery cinnamon spice note. This is followed by leather, oak, and baking spice. The agave is ever so light here. The finish is medium in length and possesses more agave than the initial taste lets on. I like this, but the fruitier character of the standard Reposado is a little more appealing to me.

Lote 10 from new bottling. El Tesoro is very balanced and I think can be liked by most people, in Mexico it feels expensive vs. other (better imo) offerings but in the US it’s a good value.

Nose: Agave and fruity entrance. . Mango, citrus, anise, minerals and vanilla-ginger-spicy goodness. A hint of lactic. A floral presence. This has an “ebullient” bouquet. Flavor: Oily agave flavor with hints of cinnamon and spice. Rounded fruit notes. Perfect dose of pepper for balance. A good all purpose blanco.
