Nose is green, vegetal with hints of pear and some spice. It’s got minerality with rounded agave notes and a subdued kick. Little thin, there’s low key pepper and a quick, easy finish.

Nose: Interesting aromas wafting out of my jarrito: Fruit and oak. A lactic note, and farm-like smells, perhaps mushrooms in compost. There is caramel and spice; and a slight sour, pickle like undercurrent with dill. Flavor: Oak and peppery entrance. Subdued caramel or butterscotch. Flavors are tamer than anticipated. A slightly watered down feel in the mouth, but the pepper heat lingers nicely.

Exceedingly dark coloring for a Reposado. Nose: Caramel, vanilla and barrel spice, with a touch of pepper. Pronounced cinnamon and citrus. A suggestion of ripe dark fruit and a dusty earthy undercurrent. A very round and velvety aroma. Flavor: A pop of pepper upon entry. A nearly burned brown sugar agave sweetness melds with a buttery mouth sensation that joins the caramel, vanilla and nutty notes. There is a new oak taste that detracts slightly from the mellow flavor profile. Finish: A creamy, comforting, mellow sipping tequila - but no wow factor for me.

Aroma: Agave forward nose, minerals and some spiciness follows. Light colored tree fruit notes, pear in particular. Flavors: Black pepper with some accompanying bitter/pepper undercurrents. Silky vanilla with a hint of almond paste. Pepper and spiciness build mid palate. Finish: Medium long, mouth filling, with nice heat. Not the most complex tequila, but I think this tequila warrants higher scores than the current ratings reflect.

Nicely spiced reposado with some sweet undertones on the finish. Bottle is a cross btween Silent Hill and Damiana Liqueur oddly enough. Thanks Janna.

Very similar to the slightly earthier añejo, this Reposado has a stamp that dates it to 2003. Pleasant to sip this is a great example of tequila production from 15-20 years ago.

Bottle from mid 2K's. This has an earthy mushroom nose accompanied by some medicinal alcohol and wood notes. In the mouth the earth and spice come right to the top along with some agave and this ends with a pleasing slightly sweet buzzy finish.
