Tasted on 8/16/08 out of high ball glass. This is a great reposado. Usually, I lean towards a blanco and second anejos. But this reposado stands out to me. A great sipper. I'm just a huge fan of the whole El Tesoro line.
Aroma: Smoke, agave, and wood.
Initial Taste: On tip of tongue, its sweet with no bitterness, a thin mouth feel.
Body: Excellent body of agave, citrus, and wood. The thing I liked about this body was that the wood was very faint and not overbearing.
Finish: A semi heated finish of medium duration.
Tasted 2/19/11 out of a Riedel tequila glass.
Distinct nose of agave with slight floral undertones and a hint of oak on the back end. The initial flavor is light, giving way to a strong sweetness in the body that lingers on the tongue. There is just enough oak to cut the sweet flavors in the finish, and very little alcohol burn is present. This is a very enjoyable, reasonably-priced tequila that stays true to characteristics I expect in a reposado.
