Tasted in a caballito on July 26, 2008 thin legs sticking to the side of the glass.
Color: slight gold tint
Aroma: agave & white pepper
Taste: pepper, agave with a hard to find taste of oak, very light oil mouthfeel that has a burn numbing the entire mouth
Cazadores Reposado is very close to their blanco with the only difference being a slight wood aged taste. For the price and taste this reposado is best for cocktails and not much of a sipper for reposado fans. As of this writing my favorite reposados are Chinaco, Sol Azul, Casa Noble & Corralejo. I gave Cazadores a low Presentation due to it's screw top and funky spout.
Tasted 07/19/08 out of a double ball glass. Cazadores reposado is a very light reposado. I think I prefer less rested reposados. I think this is an excellent 'beginner' reposado tequila. I actually prefer the reposado for this brand!
Aroma: Very faint agave.
Initial Taste: An light oily feel. On the tip of the tongue it had a very sweet taste.
Body: A very delicate agave body with light hints of smoke and wood.
Finish: Of very short duration, yet with no alcohol burn.
Cazadores Tequila Reposado, NOM 1487. This bright golden/yellow colored spirit was one of my Memorial Day treats this year. I savored it in a small Cognac snifter where it revealed hints of oak & vanilla accompanied by tastes of spicy agave, fruit, new oak aging, & a soft sweetness. The light medium body of this tequila partnered wonderfully with other fine Margarita ingredients enjoyed later on in the day. I experienced a moderately long finish ending with a nice openness of the senses. Cazadores Reposado is quite smooth, not as smooth as the top performers, but still a small investment to pay for such a delightfully enjoyable tequila. B+
