This was the only tequila available on my plane, so we gave it a shot. Smells like petrol and additives with similar unpleasant taste. Undrinkable, for me. Sad since it was solid back in the day (late 90s, early 2000s).

Pepper and chemical nose. Hot in the mouth. Odd sweetness. No agave presence.

Strong alcohol from start to finish. A little better than blanco but not a sipper for me

This is the 1999 pre-diffuser

Bottled in MAR 1999 this reposado shows why El Jimador was for a time the best selling tequila in Mexico. Too Herradura had to screw this up. Edited the score as there is no way to remove diffuser as a production method in the phone app so liking this and giving it the rating it deserves means raising the overall score for all diffuser product. That isn't going to happen. 02/07/2018

vanilla, spices and small oak hit your nose. no burn and a little smoky. I'm a fan of the taste. it rests easy on the tongue. citrus, pepper, and sweet oak combine into a subtle and gentle taste. the finish is quick and clean.

Hints of wood, vanilla and agave with stronger flavors of alcohol and spice. There is nothing wrong with this tequila. The problem is, there is nothing to bring me back.

This stuff is a crying shame. It's so tasty with many of my favorite notes. Does not taste cheap at all.The cheapness makes itself known the day after. It really beats you up.

As a budget tequila for mixed drinks, this is an affordable option. On the nose: Agave, alcohol, pepper, and medicinal notes up front. Sharp oakiness and carmel present. On the palate: Same as the nose, but more subtle. A hot and oak bitterness take away from from the other notes. Again, think affordable mixer.

Very peppery and alcohol taste/smell is very evident. Okay for a budget but there are better options for the price.

All I taste is oak. More oak flavor than any bourbon I've ever had. Good for mixing but definitely not sipping.

Tastes like vomit. Can hide the taste in some mixed drinks but it's disgusting.

First tequila ever rating.. after research on how to rate them.. I find that initially i smell some floral hints.. however also kindof chemical like.. half way thru it burns which I assume is the actual alcohol. Now that I’m paying attention to how to drink tequila the flavor was what I think the oak barrels they have been in.. I can get a hint of caramel and vanilla heat Nothing to compare the finish too.. however after 10 sec. it definitely has a smooth finish and the final aromas come out.. I think.. lol Bought at Costco for @ $30-35 .. good tequila for a gift or to bust at parties for those free loading.

Nose: Smoke. But not like s’mores at the campfire smoke, more like couch from a house fire smoke. Mix that with some wet grass. Taste: Like licking the couch. However, it does have an interesting sweet note to it that balances out the smoke. Alcoholic bite. Finish: The smoke lasts a while.

My “go to” tequila. It’s not great, but it’s good. And it’s cheap. And you can sometimes even find it in pubs. Better than the Sierra and Jose you’ll find in most bars, and more palatable than half the Patron range that cocktail bars seem to love. Good enough to sip, robust enough for cocktails.

5 Essential Tequilas for a Well-Stocked Bar

Some people, when talking about essential bottles for a well-stocked bar, leave out tequila (unlike, say, bourbon or scotch). Some people think that the only thing tequila is good for is making margaritas. Some people are wrong.

Review #237 - El Jimador Tequila Reposado

Remember the days that El Jimador was a bottom shelf mixto situated betweem Montezuma and Durango? Those days are over. It's been a 100% agave spirit for a few year and still has the great low price.
