Let me start by saying I was eager to try this tequila. My friends and I prefer reposados to blancos and anejos. The thought of an "extra aged reposado" made my mouth water. Despite the phallic shaped bottle, I still liked the presentation. Hand painted bottle, the first I've run across with a synthetic cork. The bottle I sampled cost me about $55- a little pricey for reposado. The initial aroma was almost cloying- too flowery, but not off-putting. The initial taste was decent, with a thicker-feeling body than others I've had. There was definitely a sweet (almost sickeningly sweet) taste. The finish was smooth with no alcohol heat.
Not the worst tequila I've had, but certainly not the best. I have to say I was disapointed overall. Perhaps because my expectations were so high. I'm glad I tried it, and I like looking at the bottle on my bar, but for the price there's other spirits I would buy.
