Los Abuelos Reposado : Lot 55-R. (Fortaleza) I bought this bottle while visiting the distillery in Tequila, Mexico. It’s a beautiful property but this is a tequila review so here I go. On the nose I detect a lot of cooked agave, minerals / vegetal and bright citrus notes. The taste is slightly sweet which comes from the used whiskey barrels it’s aged in. The cooked agave is dominant and there are several citrus notes. The finish is long and very smooth. This tequila is well worth the price and perfect to sip on. FYI: This tequila is branded as Fortaleza in the US.

Poured for Lobster Bus 12, I did not get a peek at the Lote # but it was a recent shipment of the latest reposado production.

Lot 81-R. Light amber color in the glass with oily legs. Aroma of cooked agave, vanilla and citrus. Flavor of cooked agave and black pepper. Long, pleasant finish.

An exceptional “go-to” tequila for the money. Can have a slightly bitter finish, but a solid contender.

Lote 72R bought at the distillery in December 2019. Just opened this at home. Super delicious. Aroma is great: agave and cinnamon jump out with vanilla notes as well. Taste is where this shines: cooked agave, brown sugar, cinnamon wow! The finish is long and smooth.

Lote 65 - R. Bought from Guillermo’s sister at the Museum. I have to put this up there with my all time favorite repos. Agave forward and just the right amount of natural sweetness of caramel and vanilla. This is what traditional methods will get you. Just amazing.

Cooked agave on nose and taste. Carmel oak & pine on front. Caramelized butter with nuts & oak. Smooth creamy on the throat.

Super smooth tequila. Coloured light Amber and quite subtle on the nose. Doesn't seem to be much if any barrel taste - perhaps oak - but to me this is a pure smooth beautiful agave tequila. Pretty much perfect. The burn is soft, slow and long. Note: Los Abuelos is the Mexican branding of Fortaleza tequila.
