Good spice, light heat, balanced with cooked agave notes

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!

Decent reposado. I do enjoy this one. Clean with lots of minerality.

Aroma is agave and white pepper with very light oak and vanilla, on the palate the pepper overpowers all other notes, although you can still detect the Pandillo DNA, it is too peppery and annoying.

Tons of agave on the nose up front. Earthy and clean on the nose. Agave, green pepper, and minerals on the palate. Oak and carmel on my second sip. Soft mouth feel with a nice medium finish. Beautiful Reposado!

Another delight of Felipe and El Pandillo. First aroma I got was green, nothing I will expect in a reposado. Yes it took straight up in to the country side in spring, with beautiful green fields and hills. The sweet aromas of reposado came second, really light and beautiful vanilla, light oak and chocolate, spice and pepper. Slowly transports you to the sweet side of reposado but its bright and crispy like a blanco. AGAVE yessss agave aromas full of natural sugar. Can’t wait to taste it. Wow wow wow how it tastes!!! It’ crispy and bright like its aromas. Its agave YES. My mouth just jump around like a kid in a trampoline, full of energy and happiness. There is a nice leather, wet soil, tobacco, a nice touch of bitterness -even though Felipe is against bitterness - this touch of it is shameless good. I just love the feel that gives and leaves in my mouth. The finish is young and with a lot of energy. Like a beautiful youth having a good go to the world. I am really enjoying this. This is a Saturday and Sunday drink for a sunny day on the beach, on the country side. Its an outdoor reposado. Its definitely not a resting reposado, its a sportive reposado!!!

Solid solid. Little light on the nose. Lost a few points here but get faint oak and caramel. Little agave rainwater. Palate: excellent flavor. Makes some dramatic changes. Get some initial agave and mineral up front then fades into a little pepper…maybe cinnamon, then on the way down I get smoked with some orange peel and salty butter plum. (Words I never thought I’d say together) Finish: nice linger. Not 10/10 but solid. somewhat oily mouthfeel with a cinnamon and agave linger. Excellent value. Will definitely not be caught without one on the shelf.

phenomenal repo. loads of agave, nice mineralogy, and enough caramel driven sweetness to knock my taste buds out of the park

It’s either this or Fortaleza for my favorite reposado I’ve had to this point. Perfect blend of sweetness from the agave with slight aging. Delicious.

The nose is fantastic with bright cooked agave, light minerality, and citrus. One of my favorite noses. On the palate, it’s initially nice and bright like the nose, followed by a nice caramel. It then quickly gets unpleasantly bitter and turns to black licorice. That flavor lingers on the tongue, getting worse with each sip and won’t let go. I’d chalk it up to a bad bottle/batch, but both the G4 blanco and G4 104 have the same terrible finish for me.

Excellent value for beautiful sipper that you'll happily pour in your glass. ($70 @ Sip Tequila) Aroma: Bright sweet roasted agave, honey with oak and rainwater minerality up front. Also, black pepper, brine/salinity, and vanilla....maybe caramel. Balanced and inviting nose. Palate: Smooth mild buttery yet salty mouthfeel with a medium black pepper heat. Thin viscousity. Cooked agave, honey and light oakeyiness with minerality, black pepper, cashew, vanilla, bell pepper and celery. Finish: Medium finish with peppery sweetness.

Nose: opened the bottle and instantly caramel hit my nose, oak, brine Taste: slight sweetness (caramel), little bit of heat that dissipates quick, pepper, salty/buttery (which I’ve never tasted before in a tequila) Finish: white pepper tingle, then a rush of salty sweet butter.

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

The blanco is really smooth and has amazing flavor but the repo doesn't live up to the same level. I find the finish harsh and astringent.
