NOM 1465 | Not a cookie cutter reposado, this tequila has a nice strong punch to it of alcohol, barrel spice, and agave in the mouth with a medium length finish that ends in some tongue buzz.

NOM 1585 | Purchased at airport in Cancun. Purchased as a gift. Vanilla forward, no cooked agave. Pepper and spice that linger. Artificial sweetness noted.

Butter caramel and chocolate. Aspartamey finish. Nice aroma. A present from Mexico. No idea on cost. From Calgary, Alberta. Much burn. Not the best finish.

NOM 1585 | Need to fill out after I have a few more. I feel NOM1465 might have a different flavor profile as this 1585 is different than I remember. Cost - $49.99 +$2.64 shipping

NOM 1465 | Dustin is correct! The aroma is very very good, but the taste and the finish are just so-so. It is a let down as it goes into your mouth and throat.

NOM 1465 | Smooth but suspected the sweetness is added poorly. Not sure if it’s been tampered with. Pepper and agave and a little nice raw taste. Too sweet.

NOM 1465 | Nice smooth agave notes on the nose and palate. Slight alcohol and barreled sweetness on the nose. The finish was slight complex and medium. I feel the additional flavors are there but very light.

NOM 1465 | Amazing bouquet. Cinnamon, clove, all spice, roasted honey agave, vanilla wafer, finishing with a black pepper subtle punch. The taste follows the nose. The closest I have tasted to this is Aha Toro Anejo. Tasting this next to Jose Cuervo De La Famila Extra Anejo and would take this every time. Try before you buy.

NOM 1465 | I picked this up at Duty Free after our last vacation in Mexico.... after sampling the blanco which is trle-distilled and quite tasty. I would have bought a bottle of the blanco, but they were sold out. I assumed (my bad) that the repo was made from the same triple distilled juice.... not so. I can't find much fault with this tequila, nor is it a stand out. Average all the way around.

NOM 1465 | Very much a tequila, classic nose, maybe something extra. Frontal assault with hot peppers and spice, some oak on the nose, nicely bitter cayenne type of finish. Thin in the mouth, spicy citrus?

NOM 1465 | It has a nice caramel flavor, but it's not as pleasant or easy to drink as other pricey tequlias.

NOM 1465 | The very first tequila I ever had. My Roomate got it when she came back from Mexico. I recently had it again and it still had all the flavors I enjoyed. Cooked agave and hints of caramel of the forefront. Had a lackluster finish but this was very easy to drink

NOM 1465 | The nose has low alcohol and is a bit sweet. On the palate I found sweet notes, some agave, hints of oak, a bit of cream, some sweet nuttiness,...hints of some corn based whiskey. Pretty smooth light body tequila with some very mild burn in the finish. Easy to sip lighter weight tequila with subtle flavors and nose. A fun tequila to try if you can find it but I tend to favor tequilas where the flavors and nose are a little more explicit and that also have more layers on the palate.

NOM 1465 | Was a lovely gift from a friend. Smooth and good but it not as good as Don Julio 1942. For sipping not mixing, we think.

Review #250 - Baluarte Tequila Reposado

My first experience with the Baluarte line...mostly because it has required special shipping costs because of the extra tall bottle. Such is the life of someone living in the frozen North.
