Nice continuity from the Blanco, still agave forward but with some spice from the bourbon barrels. This Tequila really comes alive when food is present, it seems to make the finish more pronounced.

Full disclosure- this bottle was sent to me by the brand. I gave this an extra point for "Value" due to the unsolicted gift. Nose is baking spice, roast agave, a bit of caramel. Quite peppery with a great tongue hit from the barrel, ethanol and the agave sweetness. Some barrel sweetness hangs around on the finish as does tongue tingle from the ethanol. Well balanced elements of oak, agave and ethanol make this a treat. I just got done with tasting 10 Additive Free Blancos so this is a great change of pace and another great Ing F. Camarena production.

Nose- baking spice, wet earth, brine, ripe melon Taste- caramelized agave, cinnamon, soft vanilla, more briny minerality, ripe melon, and a little vegetal grassiness Mouthfeel- somehow more oily than the Blanco Finish- Medium and a great balance between the sweet and the spice Value- Sample provided but again it has to be worth every penny

I love this reposado! Lightly aged so that the agave is still the star of the show, but with some light vanilla in the flavor.

On the nose, I’m immediately greeted by that vegetal note from the blanco, sweet cooked agave, and a touch of overripe fruit. A little bit of earthiness, some light vanilla notes, and the barest hint of oak. The palate is a treat, sweetness and cooked agave, very oily and full bodied. I’m getting a touch of citrus, minerals, and that vegetal note from the blanco but definitely more subdued. Overall an absolutely delicious. A sample from a friend, I’d love to get my hands on this. Giving it “average” for price since I can’t find good pricing info for it.

A bit vegetal on the nose. I’m getting agave, some minerality, and a twang of oak brought together in a viscous coating, before some pepper and light jalapeño punches their way through.

Again like the blanco, a sense of minerality, light citrus, caramel, and vanilla. Slight wood notes, getting a little dried fruit notes also.

Although the production notes are similar to Terralta, but with oxygenation, this reposado differs greatly. The aroma is amazing. Characteristics from the blanco are still present (vegetal and green notes, etc.), but with the reposado there is a nice kiss of oak characteristics, which aren't overpowering at all, but elevate the tequila. An great example of a reposado. On the palate, the tequila is quite viscous and flavorful. The peppery notes are more pronounced than in the blanco, but still well balanced. Each sip I take, I start to get more and more ripe, cooked agave, complemented by what the oak barrels bring. The finish is wonderful and long lasting.

As I approach the glass I first get a sweet floral scent and then when I get closer I pick up the mix of minerality, brine, petrichor and cooked agave. There is a hint of American oak right at the end. The aromas make themselves known but they don’t overpower your nose. The buttery cooked agave hits first and then the right behind follows a nice pepper and jalapeño. The minerality and brine are the backbone. The anise is nice and round and it sits in the middle. These flavors meld well are are soft on the palate due to it being oxygenated. This tequila deserves to be enjoyed slowly. Right now it’s being enjoyed by some lucky Texans but Don Vicente will be expanding. Watch for it!

Compared to the Blanco this is a sweet and balanced reposado. Very easy to drink, buttery and oily. The ageing really helped mellow the boldness of the Blanco, this is a good one. If the reposado is an indicator the XA is sure to be a very good one.

Casa Olivo A bit of a musty alcohol smell at first sniff. Tones down to a sweet aroma at second and third sniffs. Peppery taste and light burn at finish. I would have this again.

Strong vanilla on the nose and the tongue. Mild and pleasant. Very nice sipper that presents itself the more you taste it. I found the repo much more interesting than either the blanco or the overpriced Anjeo.

Aromas of cooked agave, caramel, vanilla, butter , and fruity. Very smooth for a reposado. Sweet cooked agave is very present, then got mineral, caramel, vanilla, and oak. A rich and buttery mouthfeel. Smooth and delicious!

A lively entrance of cooked agave and pastry notes (vanilla, caramel, butter). Almond nutty presence on the palate accompanied by the barrel spice magic of pinecone, leather and baking spices (nutmeg, clove, sprinkle of cinnamon) finishing with dried fruit notes that ride towards a anise and white peppery finish. Not as mineral as related NOM 1579 brands, which for a Reposado I enjoyed more.
