Partida Tequila Reposado
Reposados
Submitted by Tequila.net     March 29, 2007    
Tasted on 9/21/08 out of double ball. Hmm, I really wanted to be impressed with this reposado, but I wasn't. Then again, their blanco wasn't my favorite either. I did taste 'chemicals' or additives' in the tequila. Not a turn on for me.

Aroma: Not a good aroma for me. The nose was sour for me. That's the only word I can use to describe it.
Initial Taste: On the tip of tongue, it was bitter that turned to sweet. An oily mouth feel.
Body: Much better than the initial taste. A sweet agave flavor, with nice hints of agave, citrus, and earth.
Finish: Boo on the finish. A long heated finish with an unwelcome alcohol taste/burn.

All in all, not a reposado that I like. Then again, it's rare that I find a reposado that I do like. Right now, I'd say a reposado that I like would be El Tesoro, or Fina Estampa. I realize that taste buds are a very unique thing from individual to individual. So this is nothing more than my humble opinion.
