I used to celebrate round number review milestones by trying to drink some fancy/rare/expensive tequila. As I've gotten further into the blog and with my obsession with trying to find the best value brands out there so that the best tequila can be enjoyed by everyone, I think that it's more appropriate to review a no frills $20 bottle. El Relingo hails from NOM 1486, which is a small distillery that also produces Cesar Monterrey. I liked the blanco and though it was a really nice value, let's see what's in the reposado.

Price: $20-25/bottle

Aroma: A musty and vegetal agave aroma with hint of cloves and other dark spices.

Initial Taste: A hint of vanilla added with the musty agave flavors. Interesting.

Body: A heavier body that I expected in a bottle this cheap. More sweet than vegetal and without much spice or agave bite.

Finish: It's easy going down, but unremarkable. The sweet linger is there, but there's no oomph.

For $20, this is decent tequila. This is an instance where the value is fairly requisite of the price. Don't get me wrong...this is far better than the mid-shelf mixtos that you'll find in most stores. I'm more saying that this is not a $40-50 tequila in a $20 bottle (my favorites). If you are curious, it's worth the spend. Just some solid agave distillate.

Tasted out of a riedel glass. El Relingo is one consistent line. Out of their whole line, I think the reposado is their best showing. A very delightful sipper!

Aroma: Grass, fruit, and earth.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, theres no bitterness upon entry. Initial taste of fruit (berry).
Body: A nicely balanced body with full of agave, with compliments of slight oak, slight berry, and slight smoke.
Finish: A lightly heated finish of short duration with a nice soft agave lingering!

El Relingo Reposado NOM 1486 Tasted on 1/12/09 at 2:15pm. I tried this tequila at my home and tasted it in a Riedel glass. With a pale yellow golden color, this tequila has intense aromas of floral and fruit. Other aromas include mild vanilla with hints of earth and spice. The tequila has a thin to medium mouth feel and on the first sip is sweet with no bitterness. El Relingo Reposado has an intense vanilla aftertaste with moderate flavors of floral, agave, and fruit followed by mild notes of earth and wood. With a long duration of flavor, this tequila comes to a subtle numbing finish with hints of spice. El Relingo Reposado has received the rating of 87/88 points out of 100.
