Olive oil bottle—The lot number is hard to read but I think it’s R-1024. I get floral white wine aroma, and taste of pepper, citrus, agave, bitter oak, and earth. Still has great legs after all these years.

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.

A wonderfully priced Reposado. I honestly think this is the quality of an añejo. Here in Southern California $38!!! Unreal!

Aroma of agave, light straw, light herbal/floral. Taste is of some definite oaking with carmal, pear, and agave notes. Still retains flavor profile remnants if the Blanco but doesn't seque into the anejo as much which helps it stand out more uniquely from those. Very light but full bodied.

The entrance is sweet with all its main components (agave, herbaceous, citrus & light fruity notes), no wow factor The finish was not what I expected, lactic & briny/salty.

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.

Can't go wrong with any of the El Tesoro line. An excellent reposado for the price made with traditional methods and no additives

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.

Nice aromas, I don’t know if I’m the only one that has a strong banana up front. Nice supper

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.

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
