I am not an experienced reviewer that many of you may have become accustom to read on Tequila.net, but I will improve. Gran Centenario Reposado in my opinion is a very good tequila that should be enjoyed by all.

Tasted on 10/2/08 out of double ball glass. Since I wasn't too impressed with their blanco, I wasn't expecting much further down their line. But I have to admit, their reposado is much tastier to me than their blanco. A very nice sipper.

Aroma: Very intense floral and agave.
Initial Taste: Upon entry, a semi oily feel, sweet with no bitterness.
Body: Intense agave and floral, with a hint of caramel and cinnamon.
Finish: A slightly heated finish of medium to long duration. The flavor of this one lingers for a while.

Tasting this tequila showed me that not all tequilas can be judged by their blanco. Go figure.

Gran Centenario Reposado, NOM 1122. In my opinion this is a truly fine tequila with a light amber color & nice, long, symmetrical legs extending to the top of the glass. The first nose is that of light agave followed by slight oak & caramel. The sweet, peppery initial taste is openly inviting with a nice aged quality. Vanilla & more peppery spice forms a deep, consistent body. This entire experience finishes with an enveloping veil of agave nectar, tingling sensation, & tapers off beautifully. A slight numbing warms the entire palate & adds to the overall smoothness. This is my favorite reposado to date. It mixes superbly in a Margarita or with grapefruit soda. Very enjoyable strait, on the rocks, etc. Top shelf. A+

Nice balance on this one between the oak and Agave. Sweet and smooth with hints of spice (cinnamon & vanilla) with fruit (Citrus and pear) this is a definite must to be consumed neat or on the rocks.

Gran Centenario Reposado NOM 1122 Tasted 2/16/07. With a yellow golden color, Gran Centenario Reposado has an intense floral aroma. Less apparent are moderate fruit and mild spice, earth, and caramel aromas. Upon initial taste, the tequila has a medium, oily mouth feel and is soft and mellow on the tip of the tongue. Intense flavors of floral and agave accents are followed by moderate earth, pepper, and spice flavors. The finish consists of a numbing alcohol intensity and a medium-to-long duration of flavor. I rate this tequila at the A- range.
