Cazadores Tequila Reposado
Reposados
Submitted by El Jefe     May 20, 2008    
I could see how some people would enjoy this, but it is not for me. Admittedly, I don't love reposado's to begin with, but this one in particular just didn't work for me.

The flavor of the wood in particular was just off to me - a very pronounced oak and very overpowering to the agave. I would have given the bottle away, but it tastes okay after I've had a few glasses of something else so I am slowly finishing it off that way.

Aside from that there was a nice presence of the agave, a slightly oily body, and a moderate burn on the aftertaste.

(I would have rated it lower based on just my tastes, but I could see how some people would like the distinct wood flavor.) I wouldn't purchase again, nor will I drink it again after my current bottle is gone.
