Oro de Jalisco Reposado Tequila

Oro de Jalisco Reposado (rested) is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.  This is a smooth but intense spirit with subtle hints of exotic fruits, agave and slight wood aromas.

Each bottle is hand made and includes a bottling certification number.  

Recommended straight in a glass or snifter.

I don't often review tequilas after tasting them at restaurants, but in Las Vegas at Tacos and Tequila at the Luxor, this one stuck out to me as one that I needed to take notes on and review in short order. It was my first experience with any expression of Oro de Jalisco. In fact I had no idea what it cost or where to find it until after I tried it.

Price: $50-60/bottle

Aroma: Sweet cooked agave, vanilla, light oak. A custardy type scent.

Initial Taste: The vanilla sweetness is very prominent along with the agave.

Body: An oily body with medium thickness. The custard flavors and oak mix nicely to create a sweet, caramel, dessert type of tequila.

Finish: A medium length finish that is pretty much as you'd expect given the flavors of the spirit body. No surprises.



This tequila is is from NOM 1494 and it's the only US sold tequila that I can find from that distillery. The bottle looks unique and authentic and the tequila inside is quite tasty as well. I'm not sure if I'd pony up the the $50-60 that it would take to buy a bottle, but it's definitely worth seeking out and trying if you can find it.

Tasted out of a double ball glass on 10/17/08. This repo is one of the reasons I was weary of trying reposados. I'm just glad it wasn't the first reposado I tried. After tasting Oro de Jalisco blanco, I was looking forward to this reposado. The main things I didn't like about it were the very present tastes of alcohol and chemicals.

Aroma: Agave, oak, and alcohol.
Initial Taste: A thin mouth feel and a heated entry, it was bitter upon entry. First taste was oak.
Body: Agave, caramel, and chemicals/additives.
Finish: A medium semi heated finish with a lingering sour after taste.
