I tried this in a shot glass because the bar only had this as the better options and the price was very good. I usually prefer Repasados to Blancos and Joven it has a nice amount of rested quality and for the price it is a pleasing one. I am a girl who likes my Tequila straight no mixers no chasers if you can’t drink it that way it is not worth having in my opinion. Definitely worth a try and if you have to mix it is a much higher quality for a great price.
I don't love reposados, but for the price especially, this is decent. It has the subtle wood flavoring combined with agave that I find slightly off-putting in rep's, but compared to other rep's it is nice. The agave is definitely present and not totally overpowered by the wood, but there certainly is a smokey, peppery flavor to it. If you like rep's this is definitely worth trying for the price (at least around me it's about half the cost of more well known brands).
I bought a bottle of 1800 becuase it was on sale for $15 at my local Jewel/Osco. I remember it from years ago (i'm in my 50's) when it was considered the best tequila. Well it was really disappointing this time...I do not think I would buy it again even at that price.
Rich smoky taste was overshadowed by a very bitter/sour taste and aftertaste.
Tasted 07/05/08 out of Double Old fashioned glass. I tried it first as a sipper. The second time around I put a splash of orange juice in it. As a sipper, I've tasted better repos, but it still had the same body taste as the blanco 1800, interesting. For me, not great, but not bad. Aroma: Wood, earth, and faint agave Initial Taste: An oily mouth feel, on the tip of tongue there is slight bitterness Body: slight wood taste (I always prefer less), and a mellow agave body. Finish: hints of cinnamon and spices, with a slight alcohol burn.
