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.
