NOM 1616 | Oak, orange peel, vanilla, earth, slight bitterness, and a touch of funk.

NOM 1500 | Aroma: Strong notes of agave, oak, and smoke. Taste: Smooth, the oak is very present, with nice hints of vanilla. Finish: Smoky, with a bite of the alcohol at the end. Overall: A very nice, clean reposado. The strength of the oak may put some people off, but I find it delicious.

NOM 1500 | I like the Codigo 1530 line of tequilas. This one unfortunately is my least favorite. A little harsh, but agave shows well.

NOM 1500 | The oak treatment has really muted the sweetness, this has achieved much more balance and I’m a huge fan! If you’re looking for a subtle fan favourite this might be it.

NOM 1500 | Similar sweet, vegetal nose as the blanco with traces of butterscotch and citrus. Light body, I get cooked agave followed by barrel notes on low volume.. some caramel and oak. Followed by a touch of pepper, the finish is short and the heat hangs in the back of the mouth.

NOM 1500 | Great offering but almost priced a little high. Citrus notes, agave forward, a touch of oak and vanilla, not overly sweet.

NOM 1500 | I like this better than the blanco as the edges have been rounded off a bit. Still spicy on sipping there is caramel, toffee, barrel spice of oak and custard. This tastes aged enough to be an anejo actually. Interesting and not cookie cutter.

NOM 1500 | Very smooth, on the sweet side. Agave, vanilla, caramel, and oak.

NOM 1500 | This is a somewhat pleasant tequila but it's a bit overpriced. Yet another celebrity brand--this is from George Strait.

NOM 1616 | Amazing. You can really taste the barrel on top of the complex agave spirit. I would call it buttery. If it was cheaper I’d drink it every day!

NOM 1500 | Mammoth Gomez - Rockstar Flight: Smell is sweet with a little alcohol. Taste is smooth with a bit of bite at the finish. Makes my mouth water on the finish.

1500 Tastings June 26 2022 NOM 1500 CÓDIGO EXPRESSIONS REPO Lote L031REP40 NOSE Brown sugar brandy whisky oak vanilla, Creme Brule TASTE Sweet caramel oak FINISH Short with a slight warmth, subtle with thick legs OTHER We got these Códigos when they first introduced em. I wanna say 2016/17?!? Bottles have been open for awhile with about 1/4 left in each so may have affected the aroma and taste ??? I'm unsure of the production methods of these NOM 1500 codigo expressions. TMM lists the new NOM 1616 production methods. I have read that the anejo was aged 18 mos in French oak cab barrels? OVERALL, I can see how people would enjoy these Código 1500 tequilas. Easy sippers. Just a little pricey for what it is

NOM 1616 | On the soft side for a repo. Vanilla, Carmel. I do like it but at this price point I won’t buy it again.

I'm not in the Codigo 1530 fanclub. Exceedingly over priced ($70 @ Total Wine) for an average sipping tequila. Nose: Clean. Cooked agave, oaked vanilla, carmel and pepper. Alcohol lingers too long, which detracts from the enjoyment. Taste: Thin and slight sweetness with an aggressive peppery bite. The alcohol is quite notable in the mouth. Cooked agave, butterscotch, vanilla and pepper. Pronounced oak bitterness. Finish: The peppery heat over takes the sweetness. Too much bitterness on the finish.

NOM 1616 | Nicely balanced reposado. Light and fruity. Not too oaky. Agave forward and smooth pepper and fruit after notes

NOM 1616 | Nice barrel influence on the nose and palate. Agave and caramel primarily. Peppery finish. I would have given it a couple of more points, but somewhat pricy compared to other quality repos.

NOM 1500 | Incredibly pleasant sweet aroma. Not too strong or too sweet, but balanced very well with simple hints of Vanilla, Caramel and cooked agave. Perhaps subtle hints of oak but not enough to hit my nose with consistency. The flavour is basic and on point. It’s not complex on the palate. That’s what makes this a favourite for the price point. Can’t wait to rate the Anejo!

NOM 1616 | Not many notes on the aroma, medium alcohol smell but not unpleasant or overbearing. Relatively inviting. Taste profile is smooth with not many notes pushing through. Finish is smooth with and extremely mild kick. Little to no aftertaste. This is a well done Rep. Nothing stands out, which makes it somewhat boring. It’s tastefully done overall, but overpriced compared to the comp.

Not really my thing. It is not bad, I can see why some people would like it. However, I couldn't detect much complexity. The agave aroma and taste are very present. On the taste, agave is followed by a hint of oak and oak bitter. The finish was peppery and alcoholic. The strange thing is that it left a waxy feel on my tongue even though it doesn't have any additives. I would drink it again if it was offered to me but due to the price point, I think there are other alternatives I would choose first.
