We had high hopes for Penca! But there is no time to enjoy the flavor before the finish skips the line and brings a speaker blaring rap music.

As with the Blanco, I was expecting more out of this one. Nothing to love here.

The strong pepper aroma from the blanco is nearly non-existent and replaced by vanilla, pineapple, and sweet spice (clove, nutmeg...). The flavor is a big change from the aroma - big agave and black pepper are dominant with just a hint of sweet vanilla. The finish is moderate and smooth. Definitely a good one.

Aroma: Pepper is the overwhelming note here. Stronger than in the blanco. There's also a subtle hint of caramel. Flavor: It pretty much goes right in line with the aroma. Big bold pepper flavor with a subtle hint of caramel. There may also be a hint of cinnamon. Finish: The finish is nice but not quite as good as the blanco. It definitely has a long finish but it's pretty mild.

This Repos is one of my favorite reposados in the $50-$90 range Tasted on 05-16-13 Nose: initial hints of walnutmeg at the same time, I know weird combination....after the second smell I can pick up the agave roasted. Taste: fresh cooked agave with the taste of wood that resembles those walnut pecanish hints of smell, but just enough for the taste of agave to be fully present from the beginning to the end. Finish: medium finish with mild alcohol burn in the back of the tounge with oaky flavor. Overall, this Tequila is well rounded and balanced from agave flavor to oak taste at the end. I would recommend this reposado any given to Sunday.

This isn't being made anymore, sadly. If you find a bottle, grab it. You won't be disappointed.

Penca Azul is a light repo that has a complex nose of cooked agave and fruit, with a touch of spice and wood notes. But the taste is much more herbacious with subtle notes of chocolate covered cherries. The finish is quite long - yet light, and ends with a nice dry earth note. While I am really fond of the entire Penca Azul line, the big knock on this tequila is the $100 price tag.

Review #244 - Penca Azul Tequila Reposado

After spending some time drinking some lower quality tequilas, I was glad to pour myself a glass of Penca Azul. Right from the nose, you can tell the quality that goes into making a craft tequila like this.
