This Repo presents a rich and indulgent aroma. Upon first encounter, one is greeted by the inviting scent of cooked agave, intertwined with notes of caramel and honey. Subtle hints of sweetened cacao and light ethyl add depth to the olfactory experience, while a gentle yeast funk, less pronounced on the second night, lends a nuanced complexity. A whiskey essence further enhances the aroma, teasing a gourmand tasting experience to come. On the palate is prominent oak and cooked agave flavors accompanied by a soft barrel spice that delivers a gentle warmth without overpowering the palate. The second night of tasting is more refined, with reduced sting in the throat and chest, allowing the richness of honey, sweet potato, and caramel to shine through. Nuances of toffee, light milk chocolate, and a distinct whiskey tone further elevate the tasting experience, while a potent floral note, brine, and orange citrus undertones add layers of taste. The finish has the essence of cooked agave and caramel lingering on the palate, perfectly complemented by the fading whiskey spice. This tequila, to me, is a great gateway to the world of Reposados.

This is a delicious Reposado aged in American Oak barrels. It has a creamy, vanilla, cherry and slight caramel aroma, with some baking spice, honey, a t ouch of. pine and a whiskey presence. On taste it's creamy, with whiskey and a baking spice mouthfeel, with vanilla and just a pinch of caramel. It has a deep color because of a 3 Barrel technique where a brand new, never used American oak barrel is used. with a medium + toasted used barrel, and a medium + used bourbon barrel, before it is all blended together.

Love the aroma of sour agave and spice. Pretty bold in the mouth this held back for me a bit by a somewhat bitter finish. Not a cookie cutter reposado. Reminds me a bit of La Gritona from NOM 1533

Interesting aroma here. There is this slightly sour/lactic thing going on which I like. Pine, butter, and vanilla are also prominent on the nose. Creamy vanilla flavor that has a respectful sweetness. Finish is extremely gentle and just long enough to make you want to go for another sip.

Aromas of agave, caramel, oak & allspice. Flavors of agave, caramel, allspice, slight pepper, cinnamon, anise & sage. Very dry, not sweet or fruity.

Caramel with pinecone were two of the strongest notes for me

For me, the bitterness in the finish is the limiting factor, but I can understand the appeal.

Suave Tequila... A Smooth Player & Tequilcello - the Marriage of Italian and Mexican Flavors

The Suave line is a solid, clean, additive free line of tequilas. Jaime Villalobos Sauza really puts his all into making this a special brand of tequilas.
