Gran Centenario Tequila Reposado

Tequila Gran Centenario Reposado

Gran Centenario Reposado is a Tequila of unparalleled smoothness and quality. It is distilled from carefully selected 10 year old blue agave plants and aged in new oak barrels to achieve the perfect balance of taste and smoothness.

The label on this Art-Deco style bottle reminds us of a tequila legend: More than 150 years ago, Lazaro Gallardo calls for an angel, in order to hold a watchful eye on his still growing agaves.

THIS IS MY FIRST REVIEW!
I had Gran Centenario Reposado for the first time this weekend.
At first "nose", the aroma of caramel is released and continues through the initial taste.
I thought it was relatively smooth with a mild bite.
I would buy it again but not for $43.00. It should be in the $35 range.

Moving backwards. I had the Gran Centenario Anejo and I liked it a lot more than I thought that I would. I'm always up for being pleasantly surprised a 2nd time by the same brand.

Aroma: A nice mix of sweet agave, floral notes and spice.
Initial Taste: Sweet & spicy agave with hints of caramel and cinnamon.
Body: Medium thickness and semi-oily. A nice all around experience. Good agave character and nice aging. It's not remarkable in any flavor aspect. It's just a well crafted reposado.
Finish: Medium-long finish with a nice spice linger. Not too much wood an no bitterness. It goes down very smoothly.

I don't like this one quite as much as the older one, but it's still very good. The fact that it can be found easily and is around the $25 range makes it something that you should probably keep a look out for. It's definitely worth trying.

This is quite a nice repo, particularly for the price. Fairly smooth with a mild alcohol burn. Nice colour and viscosity.
The only area that this tequila really falls short is the presentation. The bottle simply doesn't do anything for me.

I was first introduced to this tequila by a friend who is born and raised in Playa Del Carmen. He recommended it as a family favourite that was underrated and generally "flew under the radar" with tourists and non-Mexicans and I can't thank him enough. It is smooth but not too smooth or light. That is to say that it still has a full flavour and finishes with just enough alcohol bite to be compared to the experience of sipping a fine scotch or bourbon. The price belays its quality as it can be purchased in Mexican grocery and department stores for under $20 US, yet I prefer it to reposados in the $100 US range. You could easily offer this tequila to novices and aficionados alike with confidence.

Very smooth, one of the best I have tasted. Ugly bottle though.
