Unique nose, cherries? French oak? Agave does come through. Nice palate, a delight to sip with a tasty finish. I like this one. I would recommend trying it

Roast agave, citrus and some light vanilla are all evident in the aroma and flavor of this new Reposado. El Luchador’s evolution from just a single high proof Blanco and the separately named 1, 2, 3 brand is interesting as the EL brand now encompasses almost a full lineup. This gains complexity and some unique to tequila flavors from aging for four to six months in French white oak barrels that once held white wine of Puligny Montrachet. A page devoted to these French wines says: Puligny-Montrachet, along with Chassagne, is the most perfect expression of the Chardonnay grape. The appellation was created in 1937 on soils separated by only a few metres from the Grands Crus. David Ravandi has had some interesting if not evolutionary or revolutionary ideas in the past and this product extends that market reach of some small inovation adding a totally unique product. Not a cookie cutter product in the least. Reasonably priced too after resting in some likely expensive barrels.

On the nose, cooked agave but it’s…not dry but different than the usual sweetness I’m familiar with. Very creamy as it opens up. A touch of grape, and a little bit of vanilla. Then a little bit of butter, and something like yellow apples. On the palate, cooked agave is there but there’s a roundness, and an oily dryness that i am absolutely in love with. The vanilla is there, a little bit of caramel. It’s an agave forward reposado but there’s alot going on here. I will have to revisit this a few more times, I may end up ending this bottle sooner than I expected! Overall, very good. I paid under $50 and I’d do it again and again. Very interesting, I love it.

On the nose, I get vanilla, oak, cooked agave, butterscotch, and plum The same vanilla on the mouth feel with some oak and a strong raisin and a dash of carmel coming through with a buttery cooked agave and a tinge of cinnamon on the finish. It was very enjoyable offering with a very decent finish. I see that this one has a lot of mixed reviews, but for me, it's definitely got the stamp of approval as a quality reposado.

Vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, some wood notes. Touch of sweetness on taste followed by too much heat. Not getting any agave. Might need to let it open up more but wasn't very impressed with this reposado. NOM 1517. LOTE 013D 19E 07 Update: after bottle sat open for a while, aroma is excellent but very barrel focused. This is not a balanced repo. Notes closer to an anejo.

El Luchador Reposado LOTE 013D19E 07 $50 (USD Ferment and Still) Overall: Dynamite taste and finish. The nose needs a little time to open up, but it is amazing. At $50 this feel like a steal. What a great reposado. I'd say the profile sits somewhere between Confianza and Montagave. Nose: Lightly nuanced and quite complex. Rich fig sweetness with a hint of baking spices, creamy caramel, tart grape or plum fruits. The sweetness is so inviting without overpowering. Stellar. Agave is not present, but it is not missed Taste: Oily mouthfeel with the warmth, dryness, and sweetness of cinnamon. Light vanilla, carmel, with notes of tart apple. Finish: Warm with fading tart apple and a bit of salinity.

Honestly El Luchador should had stayed at 1480 las amarices distillery. This Repo from 1517 is not as good as the Nom 1480 agave juice.

Fantastic aroma. Caramel, toffee, lots of sweetness on the nose whilst doing a proper tasting. Ironically, the taste was less sweet than anticipated. Oak, cooked agave. Enjoyed this Reposado a lot. Tasted great in a Paloma too.

Not a fan! Very dry tasting. If you like a dry wine, champagne or martini then this is for you, but not me! David Ravandi’s Organic 123 sister line reposado is a far better product IMO.

I smell no agave on this new 1517. I get something similar to the DJ Ultima...which is artificial sweeteners and alcohol. On the palate, it is sweet and bitter with very little agave, hidden within all that vanilla. The finish is rather bitter, like eating 10 green olives. Have not tried the 1480 Blanco, but I heard many good things about that one. Did not know they changed NOM and that they had a Reposado.
