Aroma/Taste – I detect a delightful blend of butterscotch, vanilla, and the aroma of cooked agave, accompanied by hints of walnuts and the freshness of rainwater. There's also an earthiness, reminiscent of mushrooms and yeast, with just a whisper of barrel aging adding depth to the bouquet. Finish – As the flavors unfold, the finish reveals savory notes of black tea and tobacco, complemented by the lingering sweetness of agave. Although the finish is relatively brief, it's undeniably enjoyable, with a subtle warmth of black pepper and hints of cola and anise lingering on the palate. Overall – This reposado exemplifies the art of gentle barrel aging, resulting in a well-rounded and harmonious profile. The essence of cooked agave remains at the forefront, beautifully balanced by the oak. Interestingly, I don't detect the typical bourbon notes found in aged tequilas, leading me to wonder if virgin oak is in play. Nevertheless, I appreciate the dryness imparted by the oak, making this a tequila I'd gladly enjoy on repeat.

This is probably my favorite nose of the heavier / oakier tequilas that are more barrel influenced. Cinnamon, baking spices, wood, moss. Smells absolutely delicious. The taste and finish are also influenced by the barrel. Another great tequila for whiskey drinkers. This would be a fantastic reposado to always have on the shelf

Nose- matalitic funkiness upfront right after the pour. After sitting it in the glass, it calms down and notes of cooked agave, pitted fruit like apricot cherry and red wine grapes flows through. Taste- the matalitic funkiness flows throughout and it’s very wine like (vinegar), with touches of ripe fruit and earthiness.

Bright agave with a unique nose, almost tropical. Lingering finish with a muted palate. Didn’t impress me. Loses points for price. Tasted with AF 2024 Blind Repo.

Warm wood notes on the nose with leather and tobacco. Sweet cooked agave, pepper and barrel notes carried by the ethanol lead to a pleasant lingering finish. Tasted blind for AF Reposado 2024.

Overall - more agave forward w/ little memorable. Aroma - fruity. Flavor - hardly any barrel-like presence w/ tad of spices at backend. Finish - any flavors evaporate quickly.
