I expected not a lot, and it didn’t disappoint. Unlike others, I’m barely getting anything to identify in the nose. A hint of agave but also a slight funk and maybe an extremely slight touch of sweetness. Not getting any barrel notes. Mouth feel is weird. And the finish... Starts a bit harsh. No sweetness. Then a bit of heat. A blend of black pepper and cinnamon. It ramps up and then calms a bit for a long peppery finish. For cocktails maybe, but sipping, not so much.

Didn’t care for this . Unpleasant plastic/rubber aroma that does dissipate a bit but not totally. Bit of cinnamon as far as flavor but still got a bit of that rubber.... not much of a finish.

La Gritona Reposado is distilled by Melly Cardenas at NOM 1533 in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. This repo is aged for 8 months and then bottled in a hand blown bottle made from recycled Mexican Coke bottles.  The nose is great. It’s full of green vegetal agave, minerals and some slight white pepper. It’s nose is more blanco than reposado but I’m a blanco guy so I love it. I first taste fresh agave and pepper followed by bright citrus and then a pleasant medium finish. It’s a great tequila but it’s missing some of the usual reposado characteristics such as sweetness and slight oak. I’m okay with that. Overall this is a great tequila. ¡Salud!

Nice aroma with agave and oak upfront along with a bit of floral and mint following. Thin, watery mouthfeel with strong cinnamon flavor. Finish is medium-long. This is a nice, easy sipping reposado. No complexity in the flavor - pretty much one-note. One other thing, this one has a unique bottle. Glass bottle shaped like a canteen with raised glass lettering and a flip-top/swing-top stopper. 03-02-2018

Has some bitter notes on entry that hang around mid tongue during a long lasting finish. This has a strong musty cheese presence as it fades to that bitter finish. Interesting as a counterpoint to all the sweet manipulated crap currently in the market.

Plastic bottle on the nose almost masks the cinnamon. Let it rest and the plastic starts to fade and agave, light floral, and sweetness come through. I happen to like natural sweetness in Tequilas and I enjoy the finish it has some spice in it.

There's a plastic like aroma thing that's throwing me off. Slight cinnamon but the plastic smell spoils that. Pine in the aroma too. After a while, when it opens up, the aroma turns to a very strong sour cheese thing. Flavor is also too sweet for me.

Slight defect- plastic smelling- but viscous and not bad for the price. Licorice aroma and sweet.

Nose: lovely herbal agave up front. Mild vanilla, caramel, and coconut mesh well with some fresh cracked pepper aromas. Just a touch of alcohol which adds a welcome level of depth. As this pour opens up some barrel character comes forward. Taste: light peppery note leans the way. Cooked agave and mild vanilla barrel notes follow. Lingering wintergreen and herbal agave on the finish. Mouthfeel. Slightly alcohol throughout adds depth with being over the top. Overall light barrel impact makes this a complex and fun journey. Overall: I saw a lot of Rubber/Plastic notes on early reviews of this Reposado and I just don't get them now. Hopefully a credit toward this distillery growing into themselves. Agave forward but there's a lot of nice whiskey characteristics that shine through. As I've read this Repo ages in Jack Daniels barrels which will contribute more mild American whiskey flavors. This product also accompanies a great Female lead business story, a group with a lot of focus on making a great product.

Nose is light and bright. Agave, wet grass, and citrusy. Big burst of cooked agave and black pepper. Softens up as it sit in the glass and oak flavors come into play without sacrificing the agave. Vanilla as well. Really easy to sip on. The finish is clean with cinnamon leaving last. Bottle is cool too. Cheers.

Aroma is both good and bad at the same time. There are good repo notes of agave and some sweetness. But also something like burnt rubber. Taste is ok but very thin and a little bitter. Finish is ok without much flavor.

Like wrestling in a high school gym on a Wednesday night... decent cash and not too many bumps against the local jobbers.

Earthy, some alcohol bite/heat. More often I was cutting it with a splash or two of mango juice. Solid choice at the $30 range. Cool bottle.

Very nice tequila with stronger agave taste than many reposados. I really like the blend of citrus and cinnamon before the peppery finish.

Ok people most wont like the comparison but I found this tequila very similar to siete leguas reposado which I like very much, the difference here is the price! Almost half. Very smooth and loaded with the agave and light oak and vanilla flavors. Once again if the bottle gave extra points it would, I liked the old school, beer bottle cork with the spring tensioner, very cool!

Smells like agave that has been stored in Tupperware, is that weird to say?

As a testament to this tequila, I would like to start by saying that I’ve drink more than half the bottle in the four months since a good friend of mine gave me this bottle. Everyone else that I’ve shared it with has loved it. I also like it, but realize that I need to nurse it because I probably won’t ever find the stick you again. This tequila taste like real tequila, with minerals and sunshine and little animals scurrying around the dirt. I really good addition to a tequila shelf, with a cool bottle, probably designed by a hipster.

Not great but not bad either. For price, $29/bottle, a solid choice for a decent reposado. Some oak, clean finish. A good mid-week option.

12/31/17 - tried in a reidel and let sit for 10 min. Got a whiskey, oaky aroma with a hint of agave and mint. Taste a tinge of sweetness with black pepper overpowering the taste. Heat through the finish, numbing the palate.
