Muchote Tequila Reposado

Muchote Tequila is made from hand selected 100% blue Tequilana Weber Agave, grown in the fields of Don Feliciano Vivanco, a third generation Agave farmer.

Muchote Tequila Reposado is then aged in small charred American bourbon casks (190 liters) for at least 7 months, which impart the full flavor and golden color to the Tequila. Finally, Muchote Tequila is selected by a tasting panel, to ensure the aroma and flavor are correct.

Muchote Tequila is handmade every step of the way by passionate people, not machines. Our mission is to bring you excellent Tequila at an exceptional price.

Editor review

This Reposado is golden with yellow hues, thick, long legs, with aromas full of agave, orange and cherry. Initial cooked agave flavor turning mildly hot, with a taste of wood and smoked fruit, hints of vanilla, a warm finish, and spicy orange / cinnamon aftertaste.

Excellent Reposado for under $30!

While tequila continues to be one of the most overpriced spirits there is, this is premium stuff for a third of the price.

Nose: Sweet smelling, almost a vanilla scent
Initial Taste: smokey, earthy but very delicate
Finish: essentially a continuation of the initial taste but this has a slightly long finish.

While the presentation makes Muchote mistakable for cheap rum or triple-sec, the juice inside of it is on the same level as Chinaco or Casa Noble's wonderful Reposados. For $25 this is a hard tequila to beat in terms of value. This for sure lives up to all the tequila.net hype it has received.

After so many comments in the preceding reviews about the plain bottle, let me say that the bottle is certainly the least important aspect. I'm not a guy who is taken in by artfully crafted blown glass and sparkly labels. I'm concerned with the quality of the contents.

Muchote doesn't disappoint. In fact, it should be marked down as a top value, with its very reasonable price. I like it more than some bottles in my cabinet that cost twice as much. It has a complex flavor that nicely combines oak and smoke with agave sweetness. Very minimal alcohol burn.

Next time, I'll purchase two bottles.

Style vs. Substance. This tequila is all about substance.

Aroma - The smell is awesome. Vanilla, Carmel, Agave and a pleasant wood and alcohol smell along with it.
Initial Taste - A nice heat to go along with the sweet and wood flavors.
Body - Flavors keep mixing well and a spicy note is mixed in.
Finish - It last for a while with a pleasant burn and the oak really kicks in.

This is a wonderful full bodied tequila with all of the flavors that a good tequila can have. For $25 a bottle, you won't find a better value. The price says mix it...everything else says to drink it straight. Seek this one out and you won't be disappointed.

Tasted on 9/24/2010 out of a snifter, neat
NOM 1414

Let me say this: the bottle will try to scare you away, but if you're brave you will be rewarded! For $20-25, you can't expect a tequila this good to be cased in crystal.

Aroma: Thick caramel, vanilla, and butterscotch. Inviting, to say the least.
Initial Taste: Clean and warm with a delicious oak that brings hints of sweet bourbon. Coats the mouth and crisps on the tip of the tongue.
Body: Rich in smokey agave, pepper, and sweet oak.
Finish: Medium-to-long duration with little to no heat or bitterness. Presence of oils and oak remain the longest, with agave fading shortly before.

For a lover of both tequila and whiskey, this reposado is outstanding. Forget it's price: this is a reposado that can stand alone in any price category. Truly a great sipper and a wonderful mixer in fine cocktails that highlight tequila (the tequila old fashioned being one of my favorites with this particular reposado).

It is currently listed as one of my favorite reposados, along with Chinaco, 1921, Gran Centenario, and Corralejo.

Tasted out of a snifter. With a light straw in color, this reposado screams reposado. And for under $30 bux, it's a bargain that can't be beat.

Aroma: Slight butterscotch and dried fruit aroma.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel. Upon entry there's no bitterness and an initial taste of wood.
Body: A great body filled with cooked agave, wood, slight spices, slight caramel, and slight dried fruit.
Finish: A smooth/slightly citrus finish with very slight heat of short duration. A woody fruit lingering.
