Nose- Wet grass, raw agave, rubbing alcohol Palate- Cooked caramel Finish- Sweet… somewhat clean. Overall decent value reposado that has high that would make a good cocktail base.

Aroma : Agave, alcohol, vanilla, cinnamon and oak . Nothing too complex here. Taste : Alcohol and agave with a fair amount of vanilla and oak. Again nothing too complex here. To me it seemed like the notes got "mixed" together or something of the like. It might have something to do with the oddly sweet nature of the vanilla notes. Finish : Finish is somewhat short with a bit of spice and alcohol, with some vanilla notes here as well. This is a pretty basic tequila. Not bad, but it's not something I would drink straight again. I'm sure it would go well in a margarita though.

This is a shot tequila for fun parties at a decent price, but falls short of a sipping tequila under my ratings

Nose: Had a sweetness of honeysuckle, caramel, wood, citrus and berries. Muted agave. Tongue: A little hot. Agave was not the star of the show. Butterscotch, oak, light vanilla, sweetener, pressure-cooked agave. Long, but somewhat artificial finish. With that said, it wasn’t offensive. The price point is fantastic, just not an all-night sipper, for me.

Still quite a bit of bitterness off the hop but the oak treatment seems to have weeded out the sweet agave I love so much! Warm butterscotch finish is nice but I’ll stick with the Blanco.

Nose: Bright agave, fruit and floral notes. Palate: Initially, semi viscous, pepper and sweet agave. Secondary spices, mint and trace almond emerge. Mexican 38%.

Sweet aroma, there is a slight burn on the finish. Definitely a good value tequila that can stand on its own.

Not a bad reposado. My bourbon friends loved it. It was sweet but bland to me.

i am pretty sure that on a blind Tasting with arette reposado or calle 23 repo there would be no much diference. I think people from Espolón does a pretty decent and underrated job.

A great value, a little hot but not bad for the age and price. Mostly vanilla and agave with a salt finish.
