I have tasted 5 of these single barrels including all 3 from KL Wines which are now OOS. Carlos and his daughter categorized around 40 barrels into 3 groups and KL picked a barrel from each category. Barrel 110 is soft with citrus and pepper, barrel 117 was more herbal while the last, barrel 158 had more minerals and a big agave punch to it. The differences are very much in evidence when tasted side x side x side. Other than the 3 KL barrels the rest were sent to various retailers around the country. The remaing barrels were blended together and bottled as the regular reposado and designated lot 001 with the new retail package.

smells delicious, sweet, a lot of vanilla. Very light and refreshing, sweet vanilla taste but not overly so. Can taste the agave. Excellent repo.

as with all Carlos Carmarena expressions, agave is still at the front of this reposado. nose has agave, citrus, some oak. flavor brings out the citrus (grapefruit). finish holds on to citrus, with some oak and whiskey at the very end. $20 more than the regular reposado, but worth a try

Liquor Barn Single Barrel aged 9 months in ex bourbon barrels. Bottled at 81.2 proof; this is my first El Tesoro and definitely not last

This is a Total Wine single barrel; and wow it’s such a great Repo. The finish is shorter than I expected but the flavor and nose upfront still makes this an excellent bottle. Light spices with black pepper and agave in there mixed with a light sweet age in the wood that makes it smooth top to bottom.

Very nutty. Quite like this one. Little burn on the finish

Perfect cooked agave aroma with wet sand and an herbaceous note. Flavors follow in that vein. There’s some alcohol heat, but also a smoothness and some nice viscosity. Finish is warm with lingering flinty agave note and hint of lime zest. Bottle #163 Aged 9 months 40.4% ABV

Huge fan of El Tesoro; this is barrel 58, bottle 48 of 240; light on the nose, but concentration of citrus & floral notes; warm honey across the palate with slight pepper & more citrus; on the backend, slight citrus bite; at $50 USD, this is a great bottle;

Vegetal and relatively smooth. It’s nice, but nothing particularly special. I enjoy El Tesoro’s aged stuff much more—the Extra Anejo, 70th and 80th anniversary are among my favorites.

Sweet cooked agave with a soft fatigued-barrel finish that complements the flavor perfectly

This single barrel is aged 10 months in ex-bourbon barrels. It is very typical of El Tesoro, meaning its crisp and herby with citrus and peppery notes. The aroma is of agave and the high mineral content in La Alteña’s spring water. The palate is by no means dominated by wood/oak, in fact it is very agave forward with a nice, viscous mouth feel. Very well-rounded tequila by Carlos.
