Tasted 03/13/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Pale amber color
Aroma: Mild agave, oak and vanilla.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave, oak, honey, and light spice flavors that are nicely balanced. Very smooth with no alcohol burn.
Body: Medium-thin body with light tears on glass. Light buttery mouth feel that distributes the flavors nicely.
Finish: Medium-length semi-sweet finish of agave, oak and spices.
Price: RRP: $19.19
Presentation: Basic yet attractive bottle.

This is a very smooth sipper with a nice reposado flavor for a “value” tequila. It goes down so easily that I finished the bottle before I remembered to make any tasting notes. Had to buy a second bottle to finish my “research.” For the money, it is hard to go wrong with this one.

A nice little brother to the anejo. Has all of the good qualities, but just isn't quite as smooth.

Aroma: Agave, spice and wood.
Initial Taste: Very solid reposado flavor. A nice sweet entry with a little bit of fruit and spice.
Body: Medium body that coats the mouth nicely. More wood notes come through as it moves to the back of the mouth.
Finish: A medium length finish where the spice (predominantly brown spices) make for a nice and pleasant sweet/spicy finish.

I bought this bottle for $15 at Mission online. For that price, it's an absolute steal. The bottle is basic, but classy. For the price, I'd tell anyone to go out and get. Tequila drinkers would like it as a cheap every day sipper or mixer. Tequila rookies would probably be intrigued by its simple and easy to drink flavor profile.

Nose: Earthy, vegetal, spicy, and alcohol.
Initial taste: Not bad. A pretty good balance of sweet and bitter. I'd agree that it's a tad thin.
Body: Nothing surprising here. All its flavors are well contained and pronounced.
Finish: Medium-to-long with smoke and spice coming through. There's also a strange "twang" on the back-end that I can only describe as oyster-like. It's not as unappetizing as it sounds, but still not very good.

Not my favorite, and not worth what I paid for it. I probably won't have it again, even though it came highly recommended (over Chinaco even...you've got to be kidding me).

El Charro Reposado (Mixto)(Shown in this pic) ? NOM 1460 ? Tasted on 4/20/07 at 4:00pm. I tried this tequila, which cost me $8, at Zocalo and tasted it in a snifter glass. This tequilas quality versus price was below average. With a pale yellow color, this tequila has intense aromas of earth, floral, and spice. Other aromas include mild fruit and smoke. The tequila has a medium mouth feel and on the first sip is sweet with mild bitterness. El Charro Reposado?s intense aromas of earth are followed by moderate notes of fruit, floral, agave, and chemical notes. With a medium-to-long duration of flavor, tastes of mild spice and smoke bring this tequila to a hot numbing finish. El Charro Reposado has received the rating of 84 points out of 100.
