It's a phallic pink bottle...not what I usually bring home.

I bought it because it was cheap. I'll try any tequila and this is my first experience with one aged in a wine cask. I like the AsomBroso line, so why not give it a shot, right?

Aroma: Agave filled with oak and dark chocolate...almost like a Tootsie Roll.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave with notes of chocolate and fruit.
Body: Medium body. The sweetness is present throughout along with the oak and chocolate flavors.
Finish: It's the most chocolatey tequila finish I've evver had in my life. I'm not sure why Burgundy casks would do that, but it's a really rish chocolate flavor. Not bitter at all. Kind of a nice change of pace.

I should reference that I purchased this for $25 (I've seen it A LOT higher) and for that price, this is a very good tequila and one worth keeping around. This is not one that I would ever mix. The flavors are complex and smooth. Very interesting to say the least.

I'd call this a Mexican cognac.

This tequila is thick and sweet. The sweetness takes away the burn of the alcohol.

Aroma: Mostly sweet agave with delicate red wine in the background
taste: sweet thick
after taste: toffee then sweet oak

My girlfriend liked it, I didn't hate it. I'll probably buy it again.

Tasted at home in Reidel Tequila glass, room temperature

Initial scent is light Agave mixed with a light sweetness. It is very easy to sip, with no burn at all, rare for most reposados, especially a 3mo. There is little agave taste, its faint but its there. More prominent is the sweet taste, its not strong, but it does hide the already light agave. The finish has a toffee/caramel flavor finishing as smooth as it started.

This is definitely not your normal tequila. The pink color, light agave, sweet flavor and sweeter finish are all out of the norm. The sweetness and smoothness are what attracts me. These attributes are not what I look for in all my tequilas, but there are a select few that do it right, and this is one of them.

The bottle is nicely done, an elegant shape with handpainted flowers. Sure there is a complaint that the bottle has a phallic shape, but I only saw this after it was mentioned elsewhere. I accept the bottle for what the creator intended, to resemble an antique English decanter.
This is a bit pricey for a reposado, no doubt due in part to the fancy bottle and heavy advertising the company does for the brand. However going strictly on taste, I would pay the $50 (in western MA) any day.

Bought this in Indiana - a small bottle (375 ml I think) on sale for $20.

I was surprised to enjoy this as much as I did. I prefer anejo's typically, but this was quite delicious. The nose is floral, but even more than that was a smell that took me back to childhood - it smells like Bazooka bubble gum (well, at least a strong presence anyway)!

The initial taste goes along with the sweet smell, but I actually like the sweet presence of the bordeaux barrels with the agave - a very nice blend for me. I actually thought there was a nice agave presence and was happy with that. The finish was good with a nice little burn, but I'm interested to try the longer aged reposado they have - I think I may enjoy that more as it probably has a little smoother finish and overall taste.

I'd highly recommend trying this if you have the chance - if nothing else it's a pretty unique tasting tequila, and it made me want to try other AsomBroso products.
