An outstanding reposado, especially in a side-by-side with big brother anejo, where repo's robust character really shines through. Smell is much more a defined crispness to anejo's complex richness: beautiful vanilla notes, citrusy sharpness, oak, and agave - nose is a tad more candied than anejo. Thinner mouthfeel than big brother, but certainly not at the expense of flavour, which is huge. Great big earthy agave taste, mild vanilla sweetness, a generous pinch of bitter sour - citrus, some wood, maybe coffee bean - to balance it all out. Nice warm medium finish (anejo is a little hotter), tongue keeps sparkling with pepper spice, wood, and light cooked sugar - just right. This is a fantastically expressive and delicious repo! Although both ages are similar in their patented Casa Noble character notes, they are strikingly unique. Now the verdict: Which of the two siblings do I like best? No contest, I love you both equally :-)
