I expected not a lot, and it didn’t disappoint. Unlike others, I’m barely getting anything to identify in the nose. A hint of agave but also a slight funk and maybe an extremely slight touch of sweetness. Not getting any barrel notes. Mouth feel is weird. And the finish... Starts a bit harsh. No sweetness. Then a bit of heat. A blend of black pepper and cinnamon. It ramps up and then calms a bit for a long peppery finish. For cocktails maybe, but sipping, not so much.

Didn’t care for this . Unpleasant plastic/rubber aroma that does dissipate a bit but not totally. Bit of cinnamon as far as flavor but still got a bit of that rubber.... not much of a finish.

La Gritona Reposado is distilled by Melly Cardenas at NOM 1533 in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. This repo is aged for 8 months and then bottled in a hand blown bottle made from recycled Mexican Coke bottles.  The nose is great. It’s full of green vegetal agave, minerals and some slight white pepper. It’s nose is more blanco than reposado but I’m a blanco guy so I love it. I first taste fresh agave and pepper followed by bright citrus and then a pleasant medium finish. It’s a great tequila but it’s missing some of the usual reposado characteristics such as sweetness and slight oak. I’m okay with that. Overall this is a great tequila. ¡Salud!

Nice aroma with agave and oak upfront along with a bit of floral and mint following. Thin, watery mouthfeel with strong cinnamon flavor. Finish is medium-long. This is a nice, easy sipping reposado. No complexity in the flavor - pretty much one-note. One other thing, this one has a unique bottle. Glass bottle shaped like a canteen with raised glass lettering and a flip-top/swing-top stopper. 03-02-2018
