I have seen El Jimador at my local liquor store and always pass it up for its bland look, thinking it might be okay as a mixer... Boy was I wrong. Decided to try a shot of the reposado at a local tequila bar Aug 2012. Had it shaken on ice first, then poured into a glass and served neat (I like to get a taste of tequila both chilled and room temp). Had a nice aroma and taste right out of the gate, with a very natural and enjoyable palate right on through to the finish, where it went down smooth and somewhat short. This tequila pretty much had it all: Agave-check. Sweetness-check. Spice-check. As it gained a little temperature, it still didn't dissapoint. It is a very solid reposado at a price that cannot be beat, although I think with a better looking bottle, they might justify a little higher price. It would get more people to look and try it I think. It's a jewel in disguise.
