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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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

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.

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.
