I should note that I'm reviewing the 100% agave version of the reposado...not the old mixto version.

Aroma: Light agave, some spice and oak.
Initial Taste: Not a ton of initial flavor. Light agave and vanilla flavor.
Body: REALLY thin body. Almost like drinking water. Nothing complex here.
Finish: A very strange finish for this tequila. The taste is like a thick custard, but the texture is really thin. It confuses your brain.

It's a $15 100% agave tequila. I wasn't expecting miracles. It's better than Cuervo Gold and not as good as Camarena and other low prices 100% agave tequilas. It's fine in a pinch because it's well priced.

We were first offered a taste of Chimayo Reposado in a pomegranate mixture and it was quite tasty. Turns out that the Blanco and the Reposado were both selling in Sacramento for $12.98 (are we still in "Budget Week?" so I decided to taste it for the record.
Colour - pale straw
Nose - bright agave, vague smoke and alcohol.
Initial taste - Semi sweet, very mild agave.
Body - Thin in the mouth, minimal burn and no bitterness.
Finish - Brief, mild and without distinction.
Overall it is unpretentious and undistinguished. For the price it is a good party-grade mixer - certainly much better than the higher priced and more familiar mixtos.
