Reposados need to pay attention to this gem. One of faves today, although the older ones pre-2000 are my weapons of choice. Buttery soft with tons of warm cooked agave, macadamia, orange zest, melon, banana Gerber pudding, minerals, mint tea, damn this is fkn fantastic! Rating a 1998 bottle BTW, but even the newer ones are great, and under 45 bucks for a liter! Update: the 1 liter bottles are discontinued and replaced by the standard 750ml, which are still a steal!

Aroma : Cooked agave and vegetal, grassy notes. There is also some caramel, oak, and very light mint. Taste : Cooked agave, banana, and the same unique minerality you see in the Blanco. Some vanilla and caramel, and more grassy notes from the aroma. This is somewhat oily, and very light in flavor. Finish : Medium length with agave and caramel, and slightly bitter. This is another light bodied tequila. But the light flavor is not accompanied by any significant depth you might see in other brands. This is still fairly good though.

This tequila just makes me smile. Its fun. Distilled at La Altena, its not as refined as Ocho or aggressive as El Tesoro. Its the middle child. If the blanco is pears, this is a pear pie. Its really rounded out nice with agave forward taste with retaining the minerality of the blanco. The baked agave is still dominating with a sweetness of butterscotch and vanilla.

No hidden agenda here, tastes like the Blanco with a touch of added sweetness and spice from the oak. Still loads of agave to be had, especially on the finish.

Nice nose: Some mineral notes, melon, agave, a dried fruit of some sort? Candied piña and honey. Butterscotch or caramel aroma. Very light oak. Flavor: Banana bread spices, agave, anise, pepper, and oiliness on the tongue. Finishes with pepper, sweet agave and a bitter tang. There is also a musty note.

Strong agave nose with light vanilla notes. Medium to light viscosity. I've had much better bottles of Tapatio Repo- the agave in here smells a little green.

Oyamel Washington DC $12 a subtle and easy tequila. both the nose and tongue are soft, maybe too soft for the tequila purist. still you taste shadows of cooked agave and earthy herbs followed by sweet fruit. I'm shocked this is 40abv. a great tequila to introduce people to the agave world.

herbal nose with thyme, mint. zesty herbal entry, with menthol and black pepper. good balance, finish could be a bit stronger.

On the subtle side as far as aromas. Still pick up nice agave and spice/citrus...fairly thin mouth feel with a mellow finish/ very little alcohol" burn"

Very unique and interesting. On the nose I get vegetal grass and raw agave. But, I also get a sweet note (possibly caramel) which makes me wonder if it's been very slightly aged. There also seems to be a hint of mint. The flavor is very mild but builds to a strong finish. If not for the finish I would wonder if it was watered down a bit. Much like the nose I get raw agave and mint on the taste. I just wish the flavors were stronger.

The nose was like walking into a distillery, had sweet agave, light wood, flowers at the bottom of the glass. Pepper on the tongue, earthy and light agave and wood on the mouth. Anise on the finish.

Rated blind. Sampled in Riedel Overture. Glass: Very pale straw color. Early tears dissipate into wide flat legs. Later tears are larger as the coating in the glass sheets away, leaving a number of pearls on the glass. Aroma: Initially sharp with agave, alcohol and mint, but becoming more complex as it quickly opens up, revealing baked agave, brown sugar, pepper and apple with a soft vanilla undertone. Excellent. Some nice caramel notes reveal themselves at the very bottom of the glass. Entry: Smooth and slightly sweet and buttery with a touch of pepper. Flavor: Big cooked agave notes, sweet butter, apple and black pepper with a hint of grapefruit. Excellent. Finish: Lots of wet pepper and sweet agave stay with you in the long finish. Conclusion: This is an excellent full-flavored light repo. Not a lot of barrel notes, but big on the agave.

Cooked Agave on the nose, with a little sweet vanilla and some alcohol. I get a hint of acetone and medicine on the back of the nose, which prevents it from being a great aroma. A lot of agave on the palate, with a very light barrel touch and and a bit of fun alcohol burn in the mid of the tongue, not too sweet. Medium to long finish with no bitterness. A good tequila, It lacks some complexity and balance to be an exceptional one but definitely fun and worth the price. One of my fav between the ones tasted

After trying Fortaleza mine and El Tesoro, tapatia reposado left much to be desired. I get mostly agave but with too much pepper and jalapeño forward with a long pepper finish. Not smooth like the other two mentioned. If you like a spicey tequila you would probably enjoy this. Not for me.

Tapatio's Reposado is rested for 8 months in bourbon barrels. The character of this reposado is subdued, but is very well done. ($40 @ Old Town). I want to echo Erica Boroom's evaluation, as she is spot on. Nose: Mellow oak bourbon barrel notes up front. Light cooked agave, and vanilla. Before this opens up, it can come across as Hay. Faint traces of banana, earth, and mint. Taste: Mild honey like sweetness, a macadamia nut butteriness, with some peppery warmth. Mild cooked agave, carmel, slight vanilla, bell pepper, along with bourbon barrel notes are so well proportioned. The longer I sip this, the greater I appreciate what Tapatio has done with this one. Finish: Simple. A little light cinnamon warth that sticks around for just a little while.
