Bottle is from the first release and is dated 21/Ago/10 bottle #27,271 Rancho Todo Santos. This has more wood on the nose than I expected and sipping brings heavy wood notes, which with as much color is filtered out is rather surprising, as well as bourbon flavors of caramel and vanillas. It also has some heavy alcohol present and has a long one note finish due to that presence. Meh. This is the original "cristalino" and one of the first, if not the first to mix reposado, añejo and extra añejo. Others have done the last two and CALLED it reposado, but this has reposado in the blend. For me other than the filtering nonsense this seems good on it's face but as the finish fades there is a fake sugar element present that was masked by the heavy wood and alcohol. Hmm...

This is a good intro tequila. It starts sweet and it has a nice finish. There is a slight burn but it’s short lived. It’s an easy sipper. Give it a shot! ¡Salud!

Take this rating with a grain of salt, this tequila lost points because it’s almost odourless. Fantastic mouthfeel, makes you want to sip this all night long. Medium, warm finish that is likely to win a lot of fans.

Aromas of vanilla and crushed nuts. Round mouth feel. Quite sweet with vanilla and white chocolate, ending with a slight pepper kick.

A blend of Reposado, Añejo, and XA, from new oak barrels sourced from Southern Europe, filtered to look like a blanco, with little of the finer points of any of the expressions. I just don't understand these gimmicky tequilas. I can't really find anything for the nose here, and that's an important part of the experience. I want to smell agave or barrel, but I feel like the filtration may have removed all of it. It enters spicy, tastes ok with possibly some notes of alcohol, and ends wet with maybe a note of citrus. I've tasted worse juice from a $40 bottle, so the price doesn't bother me. However there is none of the vanilla, caramel or chocolate you would typically expect from barrel aging. It wasn't offensive, but lacked character. If they see their competition as Bonita, then there's probably more flavor here.

My new favorite! Very smooth. I don’t have the sophistication to discern all of the nuances. But it tastes good and is smooth.

This is a very different tasting tequila so if you have a friend that traditionally doesn’t enjoy tequila, this might be a good one for them. Has a very smoky aroma, but the taste is a different story. The taste is very sweet, almost like candy. Decent burn. The after taste is very pleasant, probably more enjoyable than the actual tasting. It’s not for everyone, but worth a try.

Smoky smell and note on the tongue. However it has a quite sweet flavor and finish not sure what to think about that. Buttery and smooth with a very slight tequila bite.

A little less flavor than Don Julio 70, but ok in a pinch. Smooth and sweet, as a Cristalino shoukd be.

All around icky juice. Its foul and medicinal. Again I'll say it's my fault for not checking the NOM first. 1800 is better than this stuff.

It’s a classic cristalino , very low agave taste, but if you go for a cristalino it’s because your looking for a very soft tequila taste, we can say is the glam entrance to tequila brands, very soft and lack of alcohol taste , sweet notes in the taste

Beautifully crisp blanco, just a twist of lime and it’s an absolute treat. The only decent tequila from Jose.

Lots of fake in this tequila. Fake sugar on the nose. Fake sugar and cake batter flavor. No thanks.

Opening nose is a bit offensive. It smells like burnt plastic. However the mouthfeel is excellent. Very soft and smooth.

Maestro Dobel cooks their piñas in traditional masonry stone ovens, NOT autoclaves, using direct-steam heat for 36 hrs, without steam for 12 hrs (maintaining heat in unopened oven), and an air-cooling process after.

Review #97 - Maestro Dobel Tequila Reposado

A colorless reposado? Sounds like another marketing gimmick, but inside is a pretty good tequila at a pretty good price.

Maestro Dobel Tequila defies the senses

Have you ever seen a tequila that's crystal clear? Even the most casual tequila aficionado will tell you that this is, traditionally, impossible to do.
