Bought to try and use in barrel aging project. Paid USD27.99 in January 2021. Aroma is somewhat herbal, which is nice, but also has some alcohol, which is not so nice. It reminds me a bit of 1800 from a long time ago. The nose has some nice things going on, but also some undesirable characteristics. First impression is that this is a decent reposado, in that the agave is more present than oak, probably due to use of large casks and/or short aging period. Flavor is inoffensive and subtle, nothing wowing though. This could be sipped, as a result. Oak characteristics are minimal, but round out the harshness (not much) of the blanco. The price is right, but you also get what you pay for.

Aroma : Cooked agave, oak, vanilla. Some pepper and cinnamon here as well. Taste : Some agave presence, caramel, cinnamon, not as much oak as I would expect from the aroma. Some black pepper as well as nutmeg and anise. Finish : Medium length with caramel, cinnamon, and orange flavor. More agave and very light pepper here as well. This doesn't have as much of the "green" flavor the Plata has, something I could do without, but I wish the flavors were more pronounced here.

Really punchy, I would definitely recommend this for making cocktails, it scratches an itch that not many brands do(boozy and agave forward).

I don't get why some esteemed fellows tequileros are so lenient with this juice. I could taste the artificial-chemical vanilla sweetness even when mixed in a Jamaica Marg. Not for me, I don't care at what price!

Aroma: This one is very briny. It almost reminds me a bit of an olive. There is also a hint of oak. Flavor: The flavor is a definite surprise. I was thinking it was going to be a bit salty but ended up being much more peppery. I also get a little hint of oak Finish: The finish is pretty mellow and not too exciting. It falls off pretty quickly.

This tequila is definitely delivering a bang for the buck. It is priced low enough that it could be used by bars in cocktails, but I can drink this straight with no problem. The aroma isn't bad, but it's not my favorite part of the experience. The flavor is just loaded with sweet delicious caramelized baked agave, and the finish delivers a long and pleasant creamy vanilla treat. I am shocked that they can create this level of tequila at this price.

Nice change of pace sip, but to me the Blanco shines brighter.

Very solid budget Reposado, it has a mild barrel influence yet stays quite agave forward, lots of nice baking spice. Finish has a stronger "zing" than most rested expressions, so it reminds me of a Blanco in that regard (I enjoy it personally). Not a complex tequila, but very enjoyable especially for the price. This and the Blanco could be everyday sippers to fill the gaps between your more expensive bottles. Again, at this price you can't beat it.

Good for mixing margaritas, no harsh aftertaste if sipped neat but overall just a little bit boring, still good value for the price, as mentioned before: good for mixing margaritas

Fresh agave, rain water, and alcohol on the nose... OK, but subdued and not complex. On the palate is warm agave and dry oak... not sweet and lacking and "brightness" of flavors. And to follow suit... the finish is rather one dimensional, although pleasant enough to want to savor... clean with a hint of oak and black peppercorn. Decent value for the price... After it breathes a little bit, some sweetness comes through on the palate with bit of vanilla.
