Review Detail

 
El Tequileno Tequila Especial Gran Reserva
Reposados
Submitted by Tequila.net     August 22, 2007    
I had no expectations when buying this tequila and I ended up with one that may be in my top 10 favorites.

Aroma: A really strong agave sweetness that has tones of vanilla and caramel too.
Initial Taste: Sweet, but not overly so. The caramel flavors go along with agave to make for a really nice taste, but it's light enough so that you don't feel like you're drinking maple syrup.
Body: Some nice complimentary flavors start coming in with a nice light wood and pepper notes.
Finish: A nice medium duration linger that continues with the spice notes, agave sweetness and pleasant heat.

The bottle is a very nice and heavy duty glass. The stopper is not cork, but you can't have it all I suppose. This is a wonderful tequila for under $40. I'm looking forward to trying the anejo.
