Lot 87 | Nose: Fruity introduction: Pineapple/citrus/green apple. A touch of oak. Underlying spices and vanilla trying to emerge. Earthy minerals. Flavors: Oily mouth feel. Buttery and rich butterscotch, with a bit of salinity. The fruit elements from the nosing, carry over into the tasting. Robust pepper heat holds your attention. This is a slight departure in profile from what I normally associate with Fortaleza Repos: More fruity and playful.

Lot 85 | Nose: Pineapple, oranges, honey and butterscotch. Melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon glaze. Subtle vanilla. And a ripe light colored fruit that is nearing an over ripe state. Flavor: Big fruit and agave footprint. Big flavors in general. Significant pepper heat marries harmoniously with velvety and buttery mouth feel. Cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom contribute another layer. Butterscotch/Graham cracker pie crust/and a dash of quality vanilla...

Lot 73 | In the glass it’s a clean clear light straw color with nice tears immediately after swirl. On the nose I’ve got cooked agave, earth, vegetal, brine, marsh. The palate is, again, clean cooked agave at the forefront with allspice, clove, earth, brine, and a hint of oak. Long finish with a bit of an abbreviated ethanol warmth at the end. Classic valley tequila and always on my shelf!

Lot 80 | My first .375, after 2 pours the bottle is 1/3 gone lol. This is a nicely rich release with caramelized roast agave, barrel spice of oak, caramel, and vanilla, this is tequila creme brulée in the mouth. Glad I have several more of this lote.

Lot 81 | Nose: Lively barrel spice entrance, embracing a crisp oak note and mellow butterscotch. Clean orange and citrus rind. Some flintiness to the aromas. Flavor: Caramel, spice, pepper and brininess. Kicky and creamy on the tongue. Trace vanilla and citrus with a blooming heat factor.

Lot 77 | Nose: Spicy citrus and grilled pineapple. A pleasing sour aroma tagging along. A dark berry or cherry aroma, vanilla and sweet barrel notes. Flavor: Vibrant pepper and barrel spices. Flavor is congruent to aromas: dark ripe fruit notes, rich round vanilla, punchy cinnamon and a citrus twang. A hint of hazelnuts as it winds down. A slightly different flavor profile in this Fortaleza repo.

Lot 74 | Lote 74R. Try number 2... Nose: Cardamom, cinnamon, and vanilla tinged oak. Some clay and musty straw aromas. Hints of cedar and fruity agave. Flavors: Robust spices, a kick in the butt dose of white pepper, and oak. A fleeting cherry note, maybe some butterscotch, nutmeg and slow baked camote. It has some brininess to it, and an herbal note. Finishes strong, with an addition of anise. While there is much to recommend in this lote, to me, it has a slightly off musty note in the nosing and tasting.

Lot 71 | A fine representation of recent Fortaleza Reposados.

Lot 72 | Lote 74, not 72 Nose: The overall aroma profile on lote 74 is a departure from most Fortaleza repos in my experience. It opens with spiced pear, a hint of oak, dried powdered ginger, cloves and cinnamon. There is a flowery, perfume like bouquet mingling with the scent of lemon zest. There is just the tiniest hint of lactic and clay notes. Flavors: The palate is atypical as well. It begins with barrel spice and white pepper. It is slightly “perfumey” to the taste. Not a lot of weight in the mouth, but leaves an impression of flowery honey. Finishes with some bitterness, and to me, some confusion. Maybe it is just my palate tonight...

Lot 55 | When I’m asked what tequila tastes like I tell them to try Fortaleza. It’s made in the most traditional way. It’s classic tequila in my opinion. This Reposado has a nice nose. I taste the agave followed by mineral brine and a complex mix of citrus and slight white pepper. The finish is short to medium with the absence of an alcohol burn (smooth). It’s a pleasant sipper. All aficionado’s should have Fortaleza in their collection. !Salud!

The 6 month reposado is simply one of the best reposados on the market period. I love it!!

Lot 67 | Nose: Subtle oak influence. Minerals and potting soil. A pleasant pinch of cinnamon and cardamom. Considerably more butterscotch aroma than my last lote, #70. Faint vanilla and citrus emerged as it opened up a tad. Flavors: Much more exuberant spices and pepper than the aroma had portended. Butterscotch in the tasting, as promised in the nosing. I’m not picking up the normal cheesy, funky, olive nuances that I usually find in a Fortaleza repo. The white pepper note picks up momentum and heat as it sits in your mouth. Finish has a touch of bitterness with the pepper heat.

Lot 47 | Same as it ever was though this seems to be particularly briny in nature. Fortaleza fermentation funk (that's a good thing) is ever present and this was aged for a proper period of time as it has no sticker. Lightly touched by the barrel, some spice from oak and agave are in evidence. Finish fades to some olive notes and that brine.

Lot 68 | Poured at MBTC 2019. This was spicier than some recent reposado which have had an overall creaminess. A nice change of pace with agave, as always, plus barrel spice of vanilla and oak plus some nice aromas.

Lot 58 | Tasted at Scales in Monterey, CA. Nice caramel, brine, agave. Just solid, solid, solid.

Lot 70 | Nose: First, a whiff of familiar Fortaleza olives greet me. Next, aromas of butterscotch - but with some edgy ticklish notes. Warming barrel spice and earthy minerals. Flavor: Spices and robust pepper complement the sweet, chewy agave mouth sensation. Finish: A little white pepper kicks up the heat a notch with a creaminess to balance it out.

Lot 66 | Lote 66R from the 80ml mini bottle sold at the distillery in a 3 pack with blanco and añejo. Back to the expected profile after some hiccups with lotes in the 50s. Agave, barrel, creamy custard with some vanilla and caramel. Sipped the whole bottle rather quickly.

Lot 61 | Nose: The first wave aromas are bright cardamom, clove, and cinnamon spices, with butterscotch with some underlying oaky tones. Signature agave is here, sharing the stage with lemon, oranges, pineapple and banana. Undertones of earthiness and mushrooms. Flavor: Round, spicy and buttery. Some pepper heat builds as you sip.

Lot 59 | Nose: Oak with cedar shavings, followed by warm barrel spice. Ripe pitted fruit mingle with the abundant agave notes. Potting soil aromas with light white pepper and cardamom and cinnamon. Subtle floral citrus. Flavor: Thick and buttery butterscotch coating my tongue with robust barrel spices and a pepper punch pulling up the rear. Very nice mouth feeling, and flavors continue to bloom. Not finding some of the umami elements that I usually find in Fortaleza tequilas, but that’s ok! Finish: Anise develops in the profile with white pepper and butterscotch - a satisfying finish.

Lot 64 | Lot 64 Aroma : Cooked agave, citrus, butter and caramel. Some amount of citrus and cinnamon. Taste : There's a lot going on here. Full, thick oily feel, and I get cooked agave, citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, olive, and earth notes. None of these feel suppressed in any way. Finish : Long and rich with some olive, agave, spice and citrus. There is a lot going on here, so let this open up before you taste. If you don't you'll miss a lot of these notes.

Lot 39 | Fortaleza reposado, it's what's for breakfast. Creamy agave, some oak and the typical musty parmesan cheese from fermentation. Delicious. Thanks MB

Well rounded flavor that lets the agave shine through the oak. Aged a bit longer than I generally like for a repo, so I was pleasantly surprised that it is still agave forward. Seems like Guierllmo has found a sweet spot with his aging. Well done

Lot 59 | Surprisingly light on the nose. Hints of melon, and citrus. Little bit of vanilla bean. Heat forward on the taste. Different ! Feels like a stronger profile than other Repos I’ve had. Melon comes through a bit. No vanilla in the taste. Has some strong Spanish green olives towards the end. Finish is a bit hot for my liking. A bit expensive at my local store. Listed at 70$. Got it for 63$ with 10% off local discount. Still, not amazing value IMO. I’ll let it open up for 20 minutes and see if the heat fades. ——> heat has indeed faded. Smoother in the finish
