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.

This Reposado bottled in Tequila Jalisco tends to take on more of the profile of a lowland tequilas being that it seems masculine almost reminiscent of a softer whisky or cognac. The agave is present, as well as pepper, vanilla, and the barrel. This is a decent profile of aromas and tastes for the price. I like to put it on top of a nice blended marg as a topper or even on ice. This is above average. Serviceable.. but no where near the top. A little too alcohol forward at times. Not a huge fan of the twisty lid but this is a bargain price at the right store.

Aroma is wonderful with caramelized agave, vanilla and black pepper. Taste is good with more of the same plus a sweet date undertone. Finish is solid. I like this one a lot.

I actually had to log on to see what others said.. I found a bottle and tried it tonight. Disgusting. Lifeless, weak, watery, taste like dirty water, puréed grass and weeds with a little bark for a finish. I’m actually throwing the half full bottle away. Wouldn’t waist this for even mixing.

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.
