This is inexpensive, really inexpensive at an So. CA online retailer so was given + score for value. A single barrel store pick this has an underlying cinnamon note that I'm not much of a fan of in general but it doesn't overwhelm the taste or aroma to the point of being one note. Some agave and spicy wood notes help this reposado show nice flavors and makes for a not uninteresting experience from this brand that has a bit of history in the market. Noticable ethanol brings a fairly long finish to the mouth and tongue with some fading sweetness.

NOM 1143 | Aroma and flavor of oak, caramel and baked agave. The oak was a bit to dominate for my taste. Medium body and finish.

NOM 1143 | Batch 503, bottle 281. Strong agave aroma that is almost medicinal (not in a good way). Medicinal character carries over into flavor. For all the heavy/strong aroma and flavor, the finish is surprisingly weak. Some heat lingers at the front of the mouth.

I got this for $30 in my area. It is a smooth reposado that is a great value and flavor profile. All the people that tried it commented “that’s smooth!” Bottle is great presentation too. Everything fits with value, flavor expression, and presentation!

Neither the agave nor the wood comes through strong enough to leave much of an impression. I don't taste the vanilla that others say is the predominant flavor. It's clearly been processed heavily and infused with additives, but a strong hint of pepper at the finish gives it a bit of a kick that, after multiple sips, is oddly satisfying. At the exceptionally low price point, it's still a bargain with if you like pepper. For everyone else, a serviceable mixer at best.

I didn't care for this. It was mostly okay, but had a sour-ish taste to it.

When the bottle was first opened, there was a distinct smell and aftertaste that reminded me of cilantro: kind of a soapy taste. Maybe tannins? Someone with more knowledge can probably tell you. After a couple of weeks of being opened, it still had a hint of the unpleasant scent, but no longer had the taste. It tastes very well after the mystery flavor goes away.

NOM 1603 | Smooth and approachable aroma with some alcohol/chemical notes. Flavor is relatively smooth but the finish and aftertaste are a very harsh and spicy. Good value, but not a high quality or memorable Tequila.

NOM 1603 | Aroma: heavy caramel and oak. Missing the agave. Hints of some chemical candy like aroma. I’m confident there’s some additive sweetners in this tequila. Pallet: oak and spice. Really sweet and smooth - not much agave. Taste like an average reposado. Finish is okay, medium in length. It’s not the worst ever, just not the best. Value. 7/10. Very affordable but I have to knock it because you are paying money for added sweeteners and coloring.

NOM 1603 | Mild, pleasant smell. Strong front flavor that cools to a nice finish. This was a gift so I don’t know the price. I would drink it again

NOM 1603 | That’s an oak taste. Not too smooth but doesn’t go down bad. This is better for mixing then drinking straight. Got it for $27+tax. Basically you pay for what you get.

El Mayor is an interesting brand. Great bottle, good distribution, widely varying pricing...and opinions that are all over the map.
