A good tequila at a great price ($22) im growing tired of skyrocketing prices of all my favorite brands, Carlos, felipe, chava, etc. i love and respect your efforts But no longer looking at your overpriced bottles. This is a solid tequila, highly recommend!

Where this lacks is the finish, I find it far harsher than the añejo. Still a solid option for sipping or mixing.

I adore this tequila. It’s so different. It is a cinnamon explosion, it reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal with Whiskey. The vanilla and caramel is there but they both become third wheel to the agave,cinnamon,oak and maple taste. It is slightly vegetal but that just adds to the cinnamon bomb. The aroma is cinnamon, chocolate and so gourmand through and through. Spicy finish though, but after a few down the hatch you acclimate. For the price this is a pleasantly fun sipper to have in the collection or to grab if you just want a tasty time.

On the nose, I’m immediately getting a funkiness, like a malolactic funk. Cooked agave, then vanilla. Oak, then a grassy note. A little bit of alcohol, but not too bad at all. Some cinnamon, and spices. That almost almond like aromatic note from the blanco is there but it’s rounded and fades into the medley of the aromas. On the palate, Sweet cooked agave, baking spices, vanilla. This is sweeter than I anticipated. The cinnamon comes through, and then a grassiness. Slight bitterness on the finish, and an almost cherry like note that creeps up from time to time. Overall, it’s very good, though I prefer the blanco. I recently had Don Nacho blanco and it’s a strong competitor for my absurdly good budget buy, I’ve got the reposado as well and I’m curious to see how it compares. Overall a very good tequila, and at $23-25, this beats out Cimarron, Altos and Cabrito for me, hands down. It loses a few points on taste and finish because of the bitter note I’m detecting, and I’m holding back on a 10/10 value because it’s not as sippable as the blanco imo. Otherwise though, Delicious, additive free, tasty. What more can I say?

Agave, clean oak, dried cherry comes through on the aroma. Flavor reminds me of mom's ham cooked with pineapple and cloves. Medium finish with sufficient alcohol. For under $30, a nice reposado

I really enjoyed this one. Nice aroma, with some butterscotch notes and hay, as well as some cooked agave. Taste was nice for me. Silky texture and nice notes from the barrel, going into some rich honey notes. Hopefully additive free. I read some comments talking about heat and harsh finish. For me, this is a well balanced tequila, with great character but without any bitterness or astringency. For the price point, this will be on my heavy rotation list.

Aroma : Agave, cinnamon, caramel, and grass notes. Taste : Light agave, and peppery spiciness. Caramel here as well. There is also a bitter/acidic note that goes along with the agave/caramel combo. Finish : Medium length with more peppery spiciness and some alcohol heat.

I don’t like or dislike this tequila, it’s middle of the road for me. Smells just like any other tequila, nothing exciting to report. I definitely prefer the juice pre oak.

Nose: Agave, cinnamon, ripe dark cherries and berries, “Juicy Fruit” gum aroma, and a bit of a lactic barnyard presence - Flavor: Pepper, a caramel/agave taste, with cinnamon, cloves and a grapefruit tang. Some bourbon/whisky oak notes. Sits nicely on the palate. A great economical option.

There's just not enough price difference to get regular Arette instead of the artesenal. This mixes fine, but artesenal are clearly superior.

The biggest detractor for me is the bitter finish, like dandelion leaves. It just overwhelms the very subtle hints of rosemary and mint, which you get at the very end. The rest of it isn't very interesting, so I can't honestly recommend it.

Smells great and tastes great in the very beginning and then the finish is a little rough. Then it smooths out and tastes really great again. Interesting experience.

Arette - Reposado LOT: LF272303 View: greenish yellow, golden. Good tear adhesion. Freshly served; Aroma: vanilla and wood, minerality and herbality. Taste: very light, woody, vanilla, feels watery. Cooked agave and sweetness. Aftertaste: astringency of wood and citrus. I let it sit to oxygenate for 15 minutes. Taste: It feels more balanced but it was not a radical change. Aftertaste: citrus and wood. Good price.

Doesn’t get much better for the price point this reposado comes at. On the nose, I got the sweet smell of agave, smoke, black pepper, and some brine. On the tongue, it was an explosion of agave, black pepper, smoke, bell pepper, barrel spice, oak, and vegetable. You can definitely taste the alcohol as well but it’s not overwhelming or at the forefront by any means. It had a slight bitterness on the tail end of its long finish. Salud!

Aroma: agave, barrel notes (cinnamon and caramel), slight ethanol Taste: agave, caramel, cinnamon, something vegetal, and some pepper Finish: medium length with a peppery kick at the end Overall: along with the blanco and anejo, this is hard to beat for the price. You can definitely sip it and I’m sure it’ll make a great cocktail.

Review #159 - Arette Tequila Reposado

My first try from the Arette line. I've heard good things about it...especially the gran clase, but being a reposado guy, I thought this would be the best first choice.
