On the nose, I get Agave and spices, like cinnamon or maybe even clove. I get a little vanilla but the agave is the star of the show. Black pepper, some tropical fruit. On the palate, Agave is ever present, I’m not getting as much black pepper as the nose suggests, personally. Definitely getting those nice spices, a little bit of citrus oil. Very full bodied and delightful to drink. El Tesoro through and through, a very honorable aging of the exquisite blanco. For $43 at Total Wine in SoCal, this scores major value points for me.

Aroma: Vegetal, with notes of sweet cooked agave. Slight citrus and vanilla. Taste: Smooth and slightly sweet and peppery across the palate, with light flavors of cooked agave and vanilla. Finish: Clean finish, with spice, sweet cooked agave and black pepper. Overall: An excellent, clean tasting reposado that leans more towards being a blanco.

How tequila is supposed to taste. Agave from start to finish with a great balance of citrus and caramel. Easy to drink with just a touch of spice I find in all El Tesoro expressions. Love this repo.

Aroma : Tropical fruits and cooked agave predominate here. There are some undertones of vanilla. Taste : Black pepper and spiciness with tropical fruits here as well. There is a minimal amount of agave and butterscotch. Finish : Medium length that prolong the taste notes but with more sweetness and less spice. This is a fairly unique Reposado. Here you trade off more traditional oaky notes with fruity ones.

A big fan of single barrel selections. It this one came up short of expectations (Houston bad news selection) nice nose but short on front end and finish.

A favorite Reposado of mine where the agave really shines through with oak and roasted agave notes.

Light in color with strong agave, earth and anise aroma followed by fruit, alcohol, smoke, butterscotch and honey. Flavor is very peppery, spicy, and citrus with hints of earth, wood , smoke and caramel. I think this is a complex tequila that deserves a careful look. Finish is peppery with anise, spices and earth with hint of vanilla. Oily taste lingers after finish.

Amazing earthy nose, makes you wanna jump in and take a swim. The only critique I have is that it fades off my palette too fast, I wish it was a tad punchier. This would be epic as an over proof!

Nose: Vanilla, pineapple, bright agave, a trace of ripe cheese and a hint of earthiness. Flavor: Peppery with baking spices and fruitiness. Some butterscotch notes and anise. Lote 004, new bottle revision. Just not quite up to snuff. An almost stale almond taste. Missing the old bright notes in nosing and on the palate.

Oyamel Washington Street $13 half full bottle light up front with a strong finish. great aroma, with light honey on the nose. no burn or spice. much more pepper, and earthy herb on the tongue with a perfect touch of fruit sweet. great strong finish to end that reminds you why you drink tequila.

Aroma: Strong note of raw agave and cut grass. There is also a hint of caramel that gives it a nice complex aroma. Flavor: The flavor is very oaky with not much agave. There is also a hint of caramel on the finish. Finish: Nice long lingering finish. Pretty much exactly what I look for in a tequila.

Trying "Olive Oil' edition for the first time, the comparison with ETWLR is quite disappointing.

Subtle aroma of citrus and agave. Flavor begins with a nice peppery spice on the tongue and evolves to a more fruity flavor. The agave is still very present and not hidden by wood. A good reposado to sip and enjoy.

Hand selected estate-grown highlands agaves, cogoyo removed. Steamed in stone and brick ovens for 48 hours. Traditional tahona extraction. Fermented with only naturally occurring yeasts, no added yeasts or enzymes. Distilled in copper pot stills to 80 proof, no water added. Rested 11 months in used Kentucky oak bourbon barrels. Tasted after aeration. Thin legs. Pale straw color. Nose of green agave and a little caramel. Viscous and juicy feel. The pepper/spice sensation is mellow and distributed evenly throughout the mouth. Light agave and butter flavor with a little cinnamon kick. Smooth, wet moderate finish of pepper across the palate with some drier tannins toward the back.

Bottle: Date 05/01/2022 Appearance: Light straw Nose: Cooked agave, oak, vanilla, black pepper, citrus, subtle smoke, olives/brine…smells like really good tequila that’s been rested in ex-bourbon barrels Palate: Cooked agave, oak, black and white pepper, olive/brine comes more to the forefront, barrel spice/whiskey notes, slightly stronger smoke than the nose, herbaceous, vegetal, minerality, earthy, and citrus at the end…follows the nose and then opens up to encompass more flavors while the vanilla disappears Finish: Long, savory, and pleasant Overall: This has become the standard by which I judge other reposado tequilas. It’s one of the most enjoyable to drink, has all of the flavors of tequila that I enjoy, and the aging process enhances the natural flavors without covering them up. It’s not the most complex reposado, but for $50 and regularity in availability, this is an easy pick.

11 Things We Think We Know About Reposados

Until recently, we hadn’t cared much for reposado — tequila that has been aged in oak barrels from 2 to 12 months. It seems too middle-of-the-road: like blanco (no barrel aging) without the bite, añejo (aged for longer than a year) without the flavor. But
