After having the blanco and the anejo, I knew that I had to give this one a try. I was not at all disappointed with the result.
Aroma: A nice mix of vanilla and citrus with lighter hints of earthy agave and spice.
Initial Taste: Spicy agave with citrus and cinnamon aand hints of oak.
Body: Medium body. Lots of flavors and character as it sits on the palate: light citrus, caramel, oak and earth.
Finish: A nice long finish that has a great agave pepper bite along with brown spices and light oak.
This is a very good reposado. It has great balance between the agave flavors and the aging and uses them in a complimentary way. Although this would be a great mixer, I think that I'd stick to just sipping this one straight. It's an outstanding tequila. Well done 7 Leguas!
Tasted out of a snifter. A great reposado that comes from a great line. Everything about this tequila, from the presentation, the the product is very authentic and a great value. I recommend their entire line to tequila drinkers looking for a more complex tequila.
Aroma: A nose full of fruit, and caramel, with lighter notes of spices and earth.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel. A slightly woody entry with no bitterness.
Body: A well rounded body, full of slightly woody agave. Lighter notes of caramel, cinnamon, and earth.
Finish: A slightly fruity finish. Semi heated for a medium duration. With a fruity caramel lingering.
