Fina Estampa Tequila Reposado
Reposados
Submitted by Tequila.net     December 21, 2006    
I love Fina Estampa blanco, and the anejo has a special place as well, but repos are tough to get right.

This just smells like an old tequila - musty, yet with some mild fruitiness. The taste continues with mustiness - maybe that famous wet cement. It has a sweet flavor, yet does have a dry element from the oak. There is definitely a delayed numbing; it's not direct heat. Body is light...not thin, but light. The finish is quick in the aspect of heat, but lasts awhile in taste. The mustiness continues, with a slight dry fruity lingering.

This tequila may have more nastalgic value than anything, but it is worthy from that aspect alone. It is not going to blow you away in any one aspect, but IMO it is a reminder of times past and certainly not one to kick-to-the-curb. If you have the opportunity to acquire this repo to complete the flight, by all means do so.
