Hacienda Vieja Reposado Tequila

Hacienda Vieja Reposado Tequila is produced under strict guidelines and quality standards, utilizing select Agave belonging to the Bañuelos Family at its optimal maturity, followed by a double distillation process.

Tequila Hacienda Vieja is rested in white oak barrels for a minimum of 90 days and is produced in the original distillery where Don Felix Bañuelos established himself as a Tequilero in the 70's.  Tequila Hacienda Vieja to date, is managed by the Bañuelos Family.

Each bottle is personally inspected by the master Tequilero.

Both the 100% de Agave and the older mixto product are shown. Hacienda Vieja is currently imported as 100% pure.

Tasted in a Reidel glass on 6/23/13. I bought it at Total Wine and More for $20. This is an okay all-purpose repos*do. It's not the best or the smoothest tasting tequila around, but okay for daily use. Since my specialty is tequila for $25 or less, this is probably near the top quartile of tequilas I like. It's not as smooth as say, Hornitos, but not as harsh as some. It's a little alchoholy, but not bad. I don't put much stock in people's tasting flavors, because we're all different, but I think there's a slight hint of vanilla, but not real strong. It's a wee bit caramel, but not strong and I would say it's not exactly sweet or flowery. It just feels like another old reliable though. I can enjoy it in any number of ways.

I typically enjoy tequilas from the highland region and this one is a great tequila for the price...a good drinker you wouldn't feel bad about serving to your fellow tequila lovers. The initial taste is sweet with a pleasant heat and agave flavor with a very smooth finish. I really enjoy this one and will keep a bottle handy on the bar.

Good taste, good price. Is a very worth tequila, you can taste it straight or in a "paloma", marked agave flavour with a touch of oak, soft alcohol taste that brings a smoothy and soft sensation in the mouth (considering that is a reposado), well finish, good for all moment considering that this one is a reposado and comparing it with anothers of the class.

All I can tell you is that for the price this is one of the best tequilas I have tried in quite a long time. My wife and I basically only drink tequila and we do shots. The first shot is always the strongest but it was almost sweet to the taste. The best part about Hacienda Vieja obviously was that I only paid about 17.99 for a bottle and secondly was that it did not have a bad burn at all. VERY VERY smooth for a cheaper tequila.

Purchased bottle on 12/08/08 for $15.99 at Jon's Market. Tasted at home out of a snifter. Yet another pleasant surprise for the price. It came nicely packaged with a double ball glass, and the bottle now says 100% de agave. The main thing I liked about this tequila was its consistency. Meaning the aroma matched the initial taste and body, etc, etc. A very solid 'B+' in my book.

Aroma: A nose of oak and fruit, with lighter hints of caramel.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, upon entry its lightly sweet with no bitterness. First taste oak and fruit.
Body: A warm body of agave, fruit, spice and caramel.
FInish: A lightly (?) heated finish of medium duration with a lingering taste of peppermint.
