Nose: Begins with a crisp sherry oak scent, delicate pink peppercorns, and sweet mellow barrel spice. Followed by warm vanilla and almond butter, dried fruit, nutmeg and tropical fruit aromas. Trace earthiness. Flavors: Robust white pepper, cinnamon oil, and perhaps some ethanol (this is bottled at 45% ABV), contribute to an intense heat that reaches a crescendo; then slowly recedes offering up subdued leather and cedar notes. Finishes with a bit of bitterness - but nothing excessive. I think the repo had the balancing act figured out.

Nose: Light and fruity start with some background vanilla aromas. Dried fruit, cloves, cinnamon, and a whisper of citrus giving a round and mellow first impression. The sherry oak influence contributes a nice framework to the composite nose. Flavor: Some initial pepper bite, soon succumbs to vanilla and leather. An interesting tequila that evolves as it sits.

Strong nose of sherry, red apple, caramel, clove and cinnamon with nice mouthfeel and slight apple flavor and cinnamon red hot finish. A little hot for my personal palate, but complex and balanced.

Really nice aroma and flavor. Toasted oak, vanilla and dried fruit aromas. Slightly less complex than the Reposado. Flavor has some barrel spice and vanilla. Finish is naturally sweet and vanilla. There’s more oak here than I usually prefer, but this is a solid product that I know many fans of aged tequilas will love.

This smells amazing. Aromas of dried fruit, baking spice, vanilla, leather, chocolate, and slight caramel. Flavor has vanilla, dried fruit, agave, raisin notes. Thick and oily mouth feel and really nice comfortable finish. Of the three versions, this is my favorite.

I’m not a fan of cristalinos, so this is more about me than this product. That said, there’s a slightly funky aroma to this that I’m not excited about. The oak and sherry cask notes present in the Reposado and Añejo version are gone. The flavor is simple and sweet. I’m sure there are people who will love this, but I’m much more interested in the non-clear versions.

Beautiful floral notes on the nose and a nice soft finish with light sweetness and oak.
