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. Sits nicely on the palate, with a pleasing finish. 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.

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.

Disappointed. After trying the Blanco and enjoying that so much , I found the reposado harsh , with a rough finish. Very strong alcohol flavour which got in my nose. There are some strong green wood notes which are interested, but the alcohol burn drowns it out.

Kind of harsh for this price point. I enjoy the commingled flavors, but it burns like the cheap stuff when you finish the shot. Maybe I'd enjoy their fancier ageings, since I like the texture and fundamental flavors. Update: halfway through bottle. Has definitely mellowed out some and is a pleasant nightcap. Not something I'd rush out to buy again, but perfectly pleasant and serviceable. Bottle will get finished. Very reasonable at this price point ($40), but certainly not a steal.

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.
