This is a pretty dark repo, with a fair bit of wood aroma/flavour. The aroma also smells a bit sweet with caramel, vanilla, cherry, and of course agave. Taste is very soft and smooth with wood and caramel/vanilla as the predominant flavours. Finish also very woody, and a bit bitter. Aroma and flavour definitely better than the finish. For me it's a bit too much wood for a Repo and I'd be scared to try the Añejo! It is enjoyable though and if you do like wood forward Reposados/Añejos then give this a taste cause it is pleasant. Tasted in a bar in the Netherlands for 6.50 EUR a shot.

From the famed NOM 1079. I tasted bottle #740 from my collection. Bottled on 3/17/2008. Aged 44 months in used white oak. Sweet aroma with plenty of caramel, vanilla and fruit. A medium light body, sweet with heavy caramel and wood seeping through. Well balanced overall. One drawback for my taste, was it lacked agave flavor.

This has a wonderful nose of baked agave. More baked agave a bright clean taste. This blanco finishes nicely, augmenting what I tasted as it goes down. At $61 in anchorage it’s expensive for a blanco but I feel worth it. Problem is it’s hard to find.

NOM 1580 Lote 001 El Olor: Vegitial and cooked agave. Typical “cheap tequila” pungency. Not a lot of depth. El Sabor: Starts creamy and buttery but finds a bit of pepper near the end. Strong alcohol bite accompanying the trailing end. El Final: Nice lingering burn. Warm. Nutty after taste. Possibly the best part of this Tequila.
