So good! Love that Volans uses all three water sources at El Pandillo.

This is as close to perfect as you’re going to find….herbal, vegetal, touch of sweetness, agave never fades. The best part is the finish, this agave nectar sweetness comes out of nowhere and sticks around in the back of my tongue. This is a true sipper and I don’t recommend using this for mixing or adding ice, it’s delicate and can confidently stand on its own. Extremely well done!

On the nose, very sweet agave. Fruity, vanilla and a bit spicy. On the palate, this is very fruity and sweet. Surprisingly so, but not cloying by any means. Clearly a good natural sweetness. Very much the logical next step from the delicious blanco. Very rounded agave, a bare hint of barrel spice and vanilla. Overall an amazing repo. Another stunner from 1579, this is dangerously easy to drink.

Barrel 5. Bottle 1060. Strong cooked agave and mild sweetness. Some barrel flavor and black pepper. Easy finish.

Nose: Agave, Sweet Citrus. Palate is rich and sweet. Some sort of fruit met with baking spices and a great spices finish. I’m my opinion it needs a few minutes to open up. For the price point I can name 10+ better options but if I come across it and I’m out I will buy for sure.

Good has a nuttiness like light salted cashew which is different but good. Medium burn in the middle but phases out towards the end.

Initial impressions: This reposado is more I line with the blanco and extra añejo, specifically the extra añejo, as it smells and tastes like a younger version of it. The single barrel reposado that I had, barrel 3, had a rich leather note that was dramatic - it made for a unique tequila, but didn't feel like it was a Volans product, per se. Single barrel products usually have great nuances and I'm curious about what the other ones were like. This reposado has some similarities to the single barrel, but with more refined characteristics, which are likely from the blending. The extra añejo remains my favorite Volans expression, but things may change.

Nose: Agave, Orange Zest, Oak, Brininess, Clove, and Cardamon Flavor: Cooked agave, Ripe Stone Fruit, Toasted Nuts, and has a buttery mouth feel Finish: Nice medium finish that starts with sweet agave and ends with Black Pepper

Pretty similar to the Single Barrel edition, except this has a bit more salinity and nuttiness. Although those characteristics come at the expense of some of the classic El Pandillo mineral notes, both are pretty great choices for Reposados.

Nose: Cider, light colored tree fruit, nutmeg and a touch of vanilla. Light barrel treatment, yet pleasant barrel spices present: cloves, cinnamon and cardamom. Caramel green apple with a hint of toffee. An earthy note and a light kiss of citrus. Flavor: Crisp fruit notes. Caramelized agave richness melded with filbert nuttiness. Warm spices and white pepper. An almond undercurrent. Buttery, slightly salty flavor and texture. Clean lines. Nice balance. Finish: An almond paste, agave brûlée peppered finale.

Nose of minerals, agave, olive and very light barrel notes with sweet, caramel taste that goes down very nicely. Different than their single barrel repo, which smells more of butterscotch with a mineral finish. Something for everyone between the 2 choices!

LOT: 21/12/2022 Bot: 14. View: very light greenish yellow, almost white. Good tear adhesion. Freshly served; Aroma: very complex, herbal and mineral, salts, copper, citrus astringency, discreet and light wood, floral, it has that slat-like smell characteristic of ”El Pandillo” . Flavor: very complex, mineral, herbal, woody astringency and a little citrus similar to orange. A little vanilla from the reposo. Aftertaste: a little peppery, herbal and citrus. I let it oxygenate for 15 minutes. Aroma: the wood and vanilla provided by the barrel open quite a bit, without losing the herbality and minerality it has. Lots of pepper. Very sweet. Taste: Very sweet, it opened a lot in the sense of sweetness, a lot of wood, very herbal and mineral, citrus and astringent in a balanced and pleasant way. Aftertaste: astringent wood, mineral, citrus orange and black pepper.

Sweet agave nose, same for taste with a little vanilla. This is an incredible tequila.

Caramel, oak, touch of moss, swiss cheese on smell. Sweet sour fruit on taste (apricot, mango, pineapple) with a woody mossy note. There's a faint anise note afterwards. Flavor starts off sweet that flattens out quickly in the front of the mouth but sits on the sides and upper throat for the remainder of the finish. Interesting repo with a lot going on.

Mineral nose with a mossy almost briny quality. Nice smooth cinnamon and vanilla on the palate. Relatively short finish.

1579 knows how to make a complex expression. This repo leans heavily into the distillery’s signature mineral forward style. In addition to minerality, this expression has fruity notes & barrel influence such as vanilla, cinnamon, and caramel.

Nose: wet cement, grassy, hay Palate: cooked agave, earthy, with mint and white pepper Finish: smooth, short Coming from NOM 1579, the Volans repo was a bit of a disappointment for me. The Volans blanco has a more enjoyable nose and flavor profile.

Too much minerality and not enough barrel for me. Think I'm just in the minority of Volans not being my thing.

A very nice tequila I enjoyed it very much. A little pricey but it was worth it. Nice barrel treatment, almost drinks like an añejo. Recommend!

Nose is minerally, cooked agave, peat moss? I’m getting some sort of earthy smells. Taste is smoky, cooked agave, sweet butterscotch, some heat. Cleans off, with a little after burn. Overall is a great repo.

Herbal and milk chocolate nose. Easy finish.
