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.

I’m more of an Anejo sipper, however, this one is quite pleasant if you like pronounced agave taste and a little tingly finish. On the nose: agave and vanilla. Taste is mineral, agave and a little vanilla. If you are Reposado drinker check this one out.

This seems like a Blanco that was rested?

Didn't get much aroma, so more like a Blanco. Some pepper and Agave with a light sweetness on the finish. I enjoyed this. Not high end but easy and enjoyable. Purchased at Whole foods.(Don't hold that against me.) I would buy again.

This is a very interesting tequila. Lots of vanilla cake batter on the nose, some ethanol when you get deep into the glass, some agave and vegetal notes. The flavor is very surprising, I thought it was going to be a vanilla cake bomb but the nose definitely doesn’t fully translate into the tasting. I get raw agave, a touch of vanilla and oak, it’s at a nice sweetness. Lingering is a very interesting spice note, reminiscent of cinnamon or baking spices. All in all, I’m very pleased with this, definitely a highly competent reposado. Something agave lovers can enjoy while also being something interesting to show to a non tequila drinker.

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.
