Fair to middle of the road Reposado expression. Not a lot going on here. Some cooked agave, a little artificial sweetness detected. A little flat in the mid palate. Finish your s fair

Vegetal, raw agave ..... no barrel or signs of aged flavor .... low key sipper and good for mixing

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.

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.

Mild scent. Stronger taste with pepper and rubbing alcohol. I let it sit in my glass for a few minutes and second sip was better. Still a strong finish. Sorry, I didn’t shout.

Faint nose. Not a lot there. Light for a repo. Some decent cinnamon, vanilla pepper flavors with a faint hint of something unnatural/antiseptic playing in the background. Nice long peppery finish. An okay sipper but maybe best for margaritas. Value is good at $29 I paid.

The value is amazing nothing compares at $45 other than maybe mándala reposado at $45 i usually have to ad ice in my sipping tequilas but this one is just different,,smooth, I’m impressed. Plus it’s beautiful bottle. This is a must for any collection. The legs on this is amazing, the smell is of sweet agave with no much alcohol smell taste is smooth with some floral vanilla and agave and no after burn..
