Casa Noble Tequila - Single Barrel Reposado

Casa Noble Single Barrel Añejo Tequilas are individual works of unparalleled quality. We at Casa Noble are proud to bring a limited number of single barrel edition tequilas to aficionados who truly appreciate the mastery of the finest aged spirits in the world.

The aging process begins by using only the finest, hand-selected French white oak barrels that are lightly charred for the optimal aging of our tequila. Casa Noble Single Barrel Reposado is aged for 364 days, the maximum and most desired length of aging for Reposado Tequila. This lengthy process is carefully monitored by our Maestro Tequilero for flavor evolution and evaporation which is known as the "angel's share."

The hand-made blue porcelain bottles in our single barrel program are individually numbered, labeled and include a personalized medallion.

Casa Noble Tequila debuted the exclusive Single Barrel Line to the public on September 1st, 2009. Each barrel has its own unique flavor footprint that makes every bottle a true masterpiece, one that is both precious and unique.

Casa Noble has been around for a long time...and they've come out with plenty of special edition items over the years as well. So it should surprise no one that it is my most reviewed brand. This is the sixth review on a CN product and it is one that is no longer produced: The Cobalt Blue Ceramic Reposado. The history and celebrity owner ship (Carlos Santana) is well chronicled, so let's jump right in...

Price: $50/bottle (roughly $100-120 on secondary market now)

Aroma: Earthy agave with oak, nutty and dark chocolate notes

Initial Taste: A complex entry with earthy agave, nuts, fresh baked bread, vanilla and a hint of vegetal notes.

Body: A velvety and rich body. There's hint of fruit along with a big oak flavor that brings out of the bitter dark chocolate. There's still enough agave and vanilla sweetness to round it out.

Finish: A medium to long finish where the oak notes shine. Just hints of spice are there to give it an added complexity.

While I won't say that Casa Noble is my favorite brand overall, this product is excellent. If you are a fan of their work, you should definitely seek out this juice. The agave notes combined with the really good barrel aging (some the Casa Noble does as well as anyone), makes for a balanced and tasty repo. Excellent.

I picked up a bottle of this cheap, so the price I paid is not representative of what I could buy another bottle for. Just as well bnecause I doubt I'll be buying another bottle. The initial nose was kind of sicky-sweet. The initial taste was mild but then it all goes downhill. The body is almost syrupy, with a finish that I can only describe as "cloying" like a sick sweet honey flavor. No alcohol burn, and not horrible, but not what I was expecting from such a dignified presentation.

Tried in "Diego's" in Las Vegas, medallion states "Diego's", so it is their own personal barrel.
Like the standard reposado (the ceramic bottle, I have yet to try the new glass bottle) it was smooth with a light agave taste, easy finish with no burn. What was different was the "creamy" flavor I get from the standard reposado, was not present in this single barrel. That one aspect makes me rate the standard a tad higher.
The single barrel is enjoyable and I would love to be able to purchase it for the Casa Noble suggested retail cost of $54.95. Unfortunately since this was Diego's own barrel, and a bar in Las Vegas, they set their bottle price at $275. Since the pricing is so ridiculously outrageous, I had to rate it as low as it can go, but that is not a reflection on the tequila itself.
