Now this is fun! Loads of butterscotch, toffee, and caramel on the nose. Cooked agave lurks behind but is present. A pop of minerality, limestone, on the nose at the very end. Taste: butterscotch, then agave, then wood. Finish: Woody, but warm and long. Bravo, digging this on a snowy winter night!

El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva The nose is light but pleasant. Cooked agave and some light honey. I taste cooked agave, with some slight cinnamon and then white pepper. The finish in nice. It starts sweet and then the pepper comes in and lingers. It’s nice and balanced. It’s light in the palette and has a light body but it’s balanced and there isn’t an offensive note. It’s well made. Salud!

Nose: Nice spicy nose marries nicely with the round ripe fruit aromas. Light oak, barrel spices, a faint yeast note and caramel. A sweet cider nuance. Flavor: This delivers an initial robust pop of pepper, cloves, cinnamon and anise, which is reined in by vanilla and caramel notes. This has an herbal note or two - perhaps cilantro.

Aroma was oak, whiskey, cooked sweet agave, caramel, a little bit herbal, sort of creamy and a pinch of smoke and vanilla. The taste was sweet agave, some pepper, fruity, honey, caramel, herbal and spice, with some heat at the front end. I really had no problem with this Repo as it was nice and somewhat silky, but with a noticeable bit of heat.

Barrels, pipones, AND Oak chips? This has a ton of spice and pepper in the mouth as well as some agave lurking behind all that. Assuming this is rested in barrels and then in the pipone with the oak chips added as it can stay in a vessel larger than 600L for an indefinite period of time and still be a reposado. More than 2 months and less than a year only applies to containers smaller than 600L. This is quite golden in color rather than the pale straw of the regular reposado in a side x side. Quite bold and flavorful. Thanks Old Town. rating 777 ;-)

Still agave forward but the oak has robbed this of my favourite parts, it’s still a great tequila but my consumption will be reserved for the Blanco.

Caramel, slight melon aroma with sweeter taste than the blanco. Still a little thin but I enjoy the spicy finish.

Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Definitely pleasing and the best part of this tequila. Sweet tasting but simple—not at all artificial. Finish too clean and quick for me, though, and that's where it lost some points. However, even though the packaging has changed, this remains a legit tequila brand worthy of respect.

once you let the bottle rest for 15 to 20 minuites this smells like the holiday season.. it has a very mild nose of light cooked agave medium notes of wood, dry fruits, roasted nuts, cooked pineapple,citrus and spices. on the palate I get a beautiful balance of agave, oak, pepper and vanilla and as if I was drinking from a clay cup. followed by layers of cinamon, caramel, sourdough bread raisin, prunes, honey,dry dates, pine nuts, and ripe mango. some light smoke and a variety of herbs & spices. I specially like the dryness that accompanied the finish before it flipped my taste buds. the finish is delightful. feels like just ate vanilla ice cream with dark chocolate chips and caramel with a splash of tequila... in my opinion this drinks like an añejo.

A light bodied reposado, that can be a good sipper What holds the ratings back is its value. On the nose: Agave is overpowered by oak tannins and cinnamon. Butterscotch, black pepper and vanilla is in the background. I find the cinnamon overpowering to truly appreciate the complexity. The nose is not inviting. On the tongue: Enjoyable. Bright, lite and mild oily mouthfeel with mild warmth. Not a bad start. Oak and cinnamon dominate. Where is the agave? Baking spices, butterscotch, and vanilla appear in the mid palate. The balance and layering of flavors is a big miss. Likeable finish with cinnamon, cooked agave with a slight oak tannic bitterness.

Light in color. Agave forward on the nose with slight citrus note. Vegetal, slight pepper on the pallet. Cooked agave, very slightly sweet. Finish is excellent with slight lingering pepper and agave flavors.

Reviewing side by side with the blanco, very happy to have the opportunity to check both out at once. Aroma: Sweet, soft agave. Light touch of vanilla that is getting a lot stronger as i let the tequila sit. The citrus note from the blanco is still there but it’s mixed with the vanilla in a very neat way. Little to no ethanol, notably. The faintest bit of butterscotch, and I keep thinking of the skin of a cantaloupe. Barrel spice and agave in the empty glass. Palate: Much more rounded hit of agave, not muted, but softer. Definitely sweeter than the blanco. There’s a tiny bit of vanilla that comes through, and the cinnamon note is much less pronounced for me. Interestingly, the Barrel aging doesn’t seem to be contributing a lot of the typical Barrel notes i expect, it seems to have mellowed everything and melded the flavors together. The citrus blends with the vanilla for me to the point where they’re almost indistinguishable. Very, very interesting. Verdict: Absolutely buy it. This is the reposado where the expression makes sense to me. The blanco is great, but if given the option, I will skip it every time for the repo. It’s got a very nice sweetness and complexity to it, I find myself trying to drink down every last drop. This is absolutely a winner for me, and not much pricier than the blanco. Makes me look forward to the añejo and reposado rare.

Earthy. Wood. Lots of spice, perhaps clove or licorice. Great long semi-smoky finish. Some agave still present. Very subtle hint of fruit.

Good on the nose and a nice taste but rough going down. I feel like this would be better as a mixed drink. I only bought it because it was on sale. Not bad for being on sale overall, would not buy again though.

The nose is caramel with a bit of oak. Very light. The flavor continues with more agave and a light pepper. This finishes smooth and creamy with a touch of warmth. The finish is a medium length that meshes perfectly with this tequila. A very easy sipper. I also like that it is available. A worthy purchase for your home. (An aside comment... This is a nice tequila for the evening when non tequila folks are visiting. Comfortable and casual. You don't have to be the tequila snob. HaHa.)

A perfect middle ground. Floral, earthy, light fruit, plenty of agave like its younger blanco brother. Oaky caramel and vanilla, soft baking spice like it’s older anejo brother. The stronger peppery bite at the end is what brings this one all together—not too much, but enough to give it a light kick.

On the nose, fruity noted with a hint of wood. On the taste, light but tasty feel, no burn. fruity, hint of wood, really enjoyable reposado. Small to medium finish. Excellent reposado. En nariz, frutal y un ligero gusto a madera. En el paladar es ligero pero con un sabor muy agradable. Sabor a agave, fruta y madera. Terminacion de corta a media. Excelente reposado.
