Aroma - Sweet with grassy & nutty undertones and a bit of alcohol.
Initial Taste - Earth, not at all bitter with a little bit of agave-like sweetness, but different than tequila.
Body - Medium
Finish - A bit of pleasant alcohol burn and a tiny bit of sweetness.

Overall a very enjoyable drink for the price point of $25. The bottle is simple yet very cool as well. I'd recommend this to someone looking for a new hard liquor.

I am a huge aficionado of tequila and mescal but until recently I was totally ignorant of the flavors of sotol. On my way back from a tour in Iraq I stopped at a local liquor store in El Paso, Texas. I picked up the bottle thinking it was regular tequila. I drove to Phoenix to visit my family and of course I took the bottle with me. At a party they were having in my honor I opened this bottle of magical deliciousness. I immediately read the bottle and noticed the word "Sotol". I asked my dad about it, and since our family is from Ascension, Chihuahua my dad explained to me that sotol was the drink of Chihuahua. I have spent many years in our town and had never known this. It has truly been a delightful discovery. It has made me proud to know that the state I come from makes such a great drink!

Very smooth, but then it's only 38% ALC. My friends have tried it up against $50 bottles of Anejo's tequilas, and they say this Sotol is in that league.

It's not your fathers "tequila". this is the most complex taste. It starts of very smooth, then a creamy chocolate caramel flavor and then finishes off with a peppery bite. Very flavorful, something most of todays "tequilas" are sadly lacking! I'm looking forward to trying the H5 extra anjeo

Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol Reposado. This sotol is light amber in color with long legs. The nose is slightly woody with some traces of alcohol, chemicals, & rather light in character. The initial taste is warm spice with a nice glowing sensation & slightly nutty. The body is medium with some spicy wood carrying over & a nutty aftertaste. This reposado has a nice open finish, encompassing the entire mouth, & ending with a hint of vanilla. HDC reposado is smooth but not quite as smooth as the plata which surprised me. Taking all things into consideration especially the $, this is a great way to experience a different, relative of tequila, Mexican spirit & not spend nearly as much dinero!
