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.

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.

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.
