Price: $100-120/bottle

Aroma: A really nice mixture of cooked agave and honeyed, stewed fruits. Some light clove/nutmeg like spice as well

Initial Taste: The honeyed agave is very present. It's a really unique nose because it has a lovely floral sweetness without that big caramel taste.

Body: It's very light on the palate and not overly oily at all. The fruits and spice come forward a bit more and the floral notes fade a bit. For being as aged as it is, the oak is in the background and complimentary.

Finish: A long spice linger and the agave flavors sit on every part of the tongue for a nice long duration. On the very back of the palate the peppery linger mixes perfectly with the fruity sweetness.

From start to finish this tequila is interesting, unique and most importantly - delicious. The blend of aging barrels imparts a very complex profile on this one. If you are an enthusiast of tequila and of different barrel finishes, this one is a must try despite the hefty price tag. Salud to Robert and Marilyn for dreaming this one up and getting it into the hands of agave lovers everywhere!

Keep in mind, I'm not a refined connoisseur of fine tequila. I went to my local liquor store looking for a nice sipping tequila. Of course, the first question he asked was how much I wanted to spend. I said I would like to keep my cost below $100. As a guide, I told him i've tried several of Don Julio's selections and found the Real to be very smooth but I didn't like the pepp er after taste. my guide said the Don Felipe doesn't carry the big names as Don Julio, Jose Cuervo and Patron but this Paradiso is very smooth. I don't like to spend big bucks just to try out a specific bottle and living in Kansas, very few tequila tasting are available. My guide cut me a very good price on a bottle of the Paradiso to under $100 tax included. When I popped it and poured it on the rocks (yea I know, don't do that on the first try), the aroma was very pleasing. the first sip sloshed around in my mouth was very exciting with all of the different feelings on my tongue. The finish was smooth with a little spice and no bite. Overall, if you're looking for a very good tequila for sipping, this one gets my vote. On the other hand, if you're looking for a tequila to make margaritas, Jose Cuervo Tradicional can't be beat for $18.99. Forget about that nasty Jose Cuervo Gold, that has turned off more people off of tequila (bad hangover). Next up, my guide says the Jose Cuervo reserve is kick ass but is at $149, maybe for Christmas.

Tasted out of a snifter. This anejo definitely was worth the money. It is quite possibly the smoothest tequila I have sipped so far. It had great balance and the agave was not lost along the way. I cant really afford a bottle of this, but if I had the extra money I'd definitely buy a bottle. Another great tequila from a great line.

Aroma: A very clean aroma full of fruit (berry) and distinct floral (violet).
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel with no bitterness and no burn. First taste was fruit (again berry).
Body: A great agave body complimented nicely by slight fruit, slight vanilla, and slight cinnamon.
Finish: Great finish! A nicely heated finish of medium to long duration with a beautiful 'El Tesoro' flavor lingering.

Wow! This is delicious. So incredibly smooth. The cognac barrels definitely add some great flavors to the already fine tequila of El Tesoro. I tried this 1/23/09 at a tequila bar out of a snifter for $20/shot - I wasn't complaining though since the bartender poured me about 4-4.5 ounces! I even got a "souvenir" El Tesoro shot glass!

The aroma was fairly complex - some citrus notes, slightly smokey, carmel, subtle vanilla - a nice sweet smell overall.

Initial taste was carmel, vanilla, very mild pepper, and mild agave. Body was similar with a little bit of a smokey flavor than the initial taste. Finish was medium duration with very little alcohol flavor.

The most notable thing about this tequila is how incredibly smooth it is. I was amazed. I think I may splurge a bit beyond what I usually spend and add this to my collection soon. Highly recommended!
