Black pepper on the nose and mouth …. Tobacco with some citrus. Lightly aged not overly oaky. A little heat …. Not too complex but leaves you trying to figure out the aromas and tarting notes … Good balance….Good juice
Whoa! This whole lineup was an unexpected delight! The repo is full of agave, a touch of sweetness, citrus, slight oak, grass, and finishes almost dry. Buy it and try it.
Has a pine-like aroma, with citrus, some tobacco and mint. Flavor has vanilla, cooked agave, some oak. Quick finish, with a hint of barrel spice. Medium mouth feel. Smells and tastes like a natural tequila. Huge points for value, which can make this a regular sipper.
Aromas of anis, citrus, slight green agave and floral notes. Green agave, citrus, light pepper flavor and a punchy anis finish. Not bad but a little perfumy for my palate.
Nose: Nice fruity agave, cinnamon and ginger snaps, orange peel and minerals. Nose fades a little quickly, but while it hangs around, it is great. Flavor: Spicy baking spices, black pepper, vanilla and almonds, a touch of anise, with a silky mouth feel. Agave shines through. Medium length finish, but it invites you back for more. 1 liter price is $300 pesos, from Feliciano Vivanco, home of Gran Dovejo. This is a combined rating of an older Viva Mexico from 2014, and the current “squat” bottle iteration currently available. The older repo rocks. Nice oily anise and agave, with balanced barrel spices.
Tasted older bottling bottle (2002) Soft in the nose,Light fruity aromas not much agave stands out. With buttery, black pepper, with small hint of oak towards the end. 200 pesos MX only 2018 bottling 38%alc Had definitely a lot more cooked agave in the nose and flavor with a hint of ginger,black pepper 550 pesos Both great deals
Aroma: Very light. It's hard to pick out any distinct notes. It opens up a bit after time and there's subtle notes of vanilla and orange blossom. Flavor: it's very interesting. Once again, it's hard to pick out anything distinctive. There's a little pepper but the one thing that stands out most is the orange again. There might be a hint of almond as well. Finish: The finish is light but not a surprise for 38%. It hangs around for a bit but it's nothing big and bold.
MX market versión (38%)
Viva Mexico reposado (40%, imported by Viva Mexico) is not overly complex, and in some ways is very much a traditional repo as it is not overly sweet, but all in all, its a solid tequila, especially for $16!! The nose is much softer than the blanco, and is buttery sweet with hints of banana, pear and black pepper. But it lies to you (LOL!), as this tequila has a kick!! Jalapeño and black pepper with tobacco earth tones and a touch of sweetness before the long citrus peel finish. This reposado is just as big and machismo as the blanco...maybe even BIGGER!
Blind tasted Viva Mexico against G4, Volans, Flecha Azul, Clase Azul and Mijenta. Viva Mexico won the Blind Taste!
Enjoyable repo from Viva Mexico, aroma was a little faint with some agave, little black pepper, and alcohol. Fruity, floral taste for me, with plenty of agave and black pepper, slight hint of jalapeño. Nice medium oily finish, the flavor hangs out on the to ge for a minute. Nice!
NOM 1414, Viva Mexico Reposado ($43 @ Ferment and Still) A light, enjoyable reposado that is reasonably priced. Well made. I would drink again, but it's not my favorite reposado. Nose: Delicate. When letting this sit in the glass, I will get similar notes that Grover picked up: Pine-like with citrus and tobacco. More often, I get a fruit forward nose with cooked agave, cinnamon, mandarin orange, plumb, tobacco, nutmeg, pepper and very like oak. I wish the nose had a larger presence. Taste: Mild butteryness with a slight cinnamon and peppry bite. The balance, depth and boldness of the other notes are too light for liking: almond, oak, and vanilla. Enjoyable, not but not sensational. Finish: Much like the blanco, the reposado provides a long finish: Cinnamon wamrth and slightly sweet agave.
The aroma is hard to place. Reminiscent of orange? Good and smooth
Buttery and smooth for this lovely repo
Aroma is good with cooked agave and the richness of the red soil from Los Altos but with a whiff of alcohol. Taste is incredibly smooth with tons of buttery agave and light brown sugar. Finish is. Ice and long with some welcome heat down the throat. Yum. ¡Viva Mexico!
Like this a lot. Great agave, light caramel, little oak, anise, pepper. Nice oily mouthfeel with a medium finish
Great Juice!!! Old school Taste
Aroma y sabir frutal a un excelente precio. Uni de los mejores reposados que he provado Frutal Nose and taste at a bargain price. One of the best reposados I have drink
Get lots of herbal notes, Anise and black licorice on nose. On palate get the same subtle spice and sweet cooked agave. A very well balanced Reposado. The finish keeps me wanting more. A daily drinker in my house.
Aroma - agave, pepper, oak Flavor - agave, pepper, vanilla, oak Finish - medium, lingering another solid tequila from NOM 1414
Very first time trying this blanco from 1414 and wow, I’m sold! Lots going on here. This is a bright blanco with aroma of what you think a naturally made tequila would taste like but with a punch. Lots of pepper at the front so might not be for everyone but it’s not overwhelming it’s bold but in a good way. Middle is cooked agave. Mouthfeel not that full but that’s fine with me finish just right gets sweet towards the end, maybe tasting graham crackers! Juan Lobo definitely takes some pages out of the Viva Mexico book!
First time around, not feeling it. The Anejo was very good when I tried it. Every once in awhile I feel that it just may be an off night.. but my first experience was tough.

For my 150th review, I thought I was do a review on a real gem. The best part about this gem is that you can find it for $20.

Bumping up a few points after revisiting. I've come around to this one. Agave comes through nicely on the nose. Barrel influence is very minimal. Slight bitterness on the end. Nice but my least favorite of the line
