Cava de Oro Tequila Reposado
Reposados
Submitted by Tequila.net     October 07, 2008    
First of all I love Cava de Oro silver and I ran across the reposado just last month (June 2013) while staying in Madison, Wisconsin. This would be the hand blown blue bottle with the metal label that is no longer available. I had every intention to ship it home to be part of my collection but alas it was a leaker and had to be drunk down instead. So using a tequila snifter and a blind taste test with the following three bottles of reposado, Espolon (rating 89) La Certeza (92) and Muchote (94) I began the review. The nose was a bit fumey and sharp, with just a hint of agave. Initial taste went down well. Nice and smooth. The body was light and clean, no off flavors, just reposado at its best. the finish was nice and refined with a nice long lingering finish and a small burst of agave sweetness at the end. compared to the other three it was the most expensive but still worth the price. The bottle is outstanding and way different than the one pictured. would I spend $40 for it again? (old bottle, yes. New bottle, No)
