Single Barrel selected by Sip Tequila, Barrel #8

On the nose, cooked agave, softer than the blanco for sure, and sweeter. A fruity note, maybe peach or nectarine? Very interesting. Minerals and a very faint floral note that is very interesting. Black pepper, and caramel as it opens up. On the palate, It’s vegetal, cooked agave, grassy. Strong mineral presence. Shockingly vegetal for me, that stands out more clearly than in the blanco. A light touch of honey and vanilla. Amazing stuff. Well worth a try, and definitely one of the best reposados I’ve ever had.

Aroma: Light cooked agave, oak, and fresh-cut jalapeño pepper. Taste: Similar to the aroma, light flavors throughout, more oak flavor than present in the aroma. Finish: Ultra smooth, one of the cleanest finishes of any reposado I’ve tried. I feel like you can almost taste the smooth minerality of the rain water El Pandillo is famed for using. Overall: An amazingly good reposado. Does not have that bold flavor other reposados have, but I don’t think you can find a cleaner, smoother tasting reposado anywhere.

Another winner from G4, neutral to light oak brings out subtle sweet agave, real pleasant finish. Very balanced

Aroma carries agave without any heat. Hints of acetone / esters behind vanilla towards the end of the smell. Mid palate taste shines with a warm agave forward flavor, then let’s you know it’s been aged in wood. Overall a great mouthfeel & experience from a lightly aged Repo.

This was a white label Mexican version. With the lower abv, definitely was softer on the pallet which I found muted the flavor a tad. Very nice nose and one of the most balanced reposados I’ve had.

In the glass, very light yellow tinted and with nice long tears much like the blanco. In the nose there’s loads of agave, some minerals, rain, oak, vanilla, citrus (grapefruit maybe?) On the palate this picks right up where the blanco left off but somehow accentuates the good parts even further - cooked agave, pepper, butter, citrus, and oak. It’s got a long beautiful finish with notes of vanilla and a sweet burn at the very end. Definitely one of my favorites!

Starts to migrate away from what I personally love but still a top shelf effort. I get a cinnamon finish on the end of my tongue that just won’t quit.

Agave, pepper, mineral nose. Wood is almost imperceptible. Agave taste with peppery burst of a finish. Light mouthfeel.

I love this expression of G4 from Felipe’s El Pandillo distillery. Everything about this distillery and his process is pure and environmentally conscious. This expression has strong notes of cooked agave, citrus, black pepper, vanilla and oak. It’s exactly what this expression should taste like. Superb.

G4 is an excellent tequila. Their Reposado has a sweet nose with hints of agave, citrus and floral notes. It’s an agave forward tequila that has been rested in a used oak whiskey barrels. The barrels give it a light copper color and some added complexity without distracting you from the agave. This is a Reposado done the right way! ¡Salud!

Clean and crisp reposado where the agave still shines and you can swear that Felipe’s rainwater comes through. This is what traditional tequila should taste like. 86 rating. G4 Reposado Single Barrel update: hand selected by Maple Lake Wine & Spirits (Illinois). This tequila is aged 10 months in American Oak barrels, but what makes this one special is that this batch of 120 bottles is all from the same barrel making it unique from all other batches. Notes of agave, oak, flowers, vanilla, and chocolate, and a touch smoother than the regular G4. 88 rating. Single Barrel update 2: The Bientrucha Group (Illinois) selected barrel is the best yet! Aged 10 months, this is similar to the Maple Lake selection but slightly more balanced. My favorite G4 Repo so far. 90 rating.

Lote 3 Nose: Spicy cooked agave. Crisp distinct nose. Fruitiness and rounded, balanced aromas. Flavor: Nuttiness with baking spices on top of the honey sweet baked agave. Soft heat and oily. Rounded appealing flavor profile. Longish balanced finish.

The new American import. 40% ABV, green label. Very light straw color, oily body. Big tears with thick legs, leaving a lot of hanging pearls in the glass. The aroma is primarily cooked agave with a hint of bright non-sweet citrus, maybe lemon. There's also small background notes of caramel, vanilla, cinnamon and oak from the barrel. The entry is smooth and oily. The flavor isn't complex, featuring cooked agave, faint barrel notes of vanilla, along with hints of grapefruit and a little white pepper. It provides a moderate spiciness through a long finish. No big sweet buttery barrel favors here, mostly just agave rounded out nicely. This is a solid agave-forward lightly-aged repo with no off notes or defects to be found. For $42 at oldtowntequila.com, this is an excellent value.

I didn't particularly love the aroma on this one. It took quite a while to open up and give out some cooked agave besides the initial alcohol and astringency. Fortunately on the palate it's a different story. Very nice notes of vanilla, cream soda, lightly sweet oak, all tied together by a dominant cooked agave background note and some very entertaining spiciness. Nice medium long agave finish. All around a very nice juice, with a rustic traditional no bs feel to it. Probably not a life changer, but definitely right in my ally!

Not quite as smooth as the blanco on entry this reposado has quite a bit of barrel spice and mimics the earlier Ocho releases. This isn't surprising since FC helped develop the Ocho flavor profile. Hell, his signature is on the bottle. This is a logical extension of the G4 blanco. Highly recommended.

Like the blanco, you can't help but notice how smooth this one is. A very light nose, you have to inhale stronger than normal to get any hints of alcohol. A very nutty, caramel aroma with a similar body and mouthfeel. Not harsh at any point at all which is a nice change from the normal peppery, tongue tingling finish I often get from highland tequilas. Like the blanco, get it while its cheap.

I love this juice. From the second I stuck my nose in the bottle. Nice and light fruity fragrance. Light oak and pepper notes with a well balanced agave finish. No wonder this is my favorite travel bottle (even when going to Mexico...lol).

Agave barrel and pepper. Citrus notes with strong black pepper finish. Slightly musky that enhances complexity, probably due to water.

I toured this distillery in the fall of 2017 and met Felipe and sons . Wow ! Definitely one of the best of the best . Easily worth the $50 a bottle . True reposado tequila like you’ve probably never had . The full on awesome agave aroma and taste , accented by innovative use of rain water and state of the art and unique production . Big Kudos , this tastes simply terrific, as I’m sure the others from El Pandillo do ! Salud !
