Tasted 05/30/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Pale straw color
Aroma: Nice aroma of agave, oak and vanilla with hints of fruit, spice and earth.
Initial Taste: Rich flavors of peppery agave, oak, nuts, honey, and baking spices.
Body: Medium body with slow tears on the glass and light, buttery mouth feel. The rich flavors balance each other nicely.
Finish: Medium-length, semi-sweet heated finish of peppery agave, honey and spices, which leaves a slightly earthy and bitter after taste.
Price: $19.99 to $59.99 (RRP: $35.99)
Presentation: An attractive contemporary brown bottle. The design certainly catches your eye on a crowded bar shelf.
Milagro Reposado has a nicely balanced and rich flavor profile initially. However, I didn’t care for the slightly heated, bitter and earthy finish. It would probably make a good mixer but you can find better reposados in the this price range.
I have been buying this brand of Tequila for sometime now as a gift. It is widely available and the presentation was not very bad. Price is fair. Presentation nice. Not a premium tequila but one that can be taken as it for taste. Don't mix it, it is worth a try. Strong finish though.
Milagro is a big brand that can be found anywhere. For a person in the northern US, that is a real determining factor because too often stores have 20 or fewer total tequilas, it's a bonus when you can find something good and reasonably priced. I like many of the other Milagros, so I hope this is similar...
Aroma: Agave, vanilla, spice and a hint of earth.
Initial Taste: Agave, oak, dark fruit and vanilla. A very nice entry.
Body: Medium-thin body, not oily at all. Similar flavors to the start. The woody flavors are a bit more prominent. A little bit of citrus fruit as well
Finish: Earthy agave finish with a light pepper kick. Oak and citrus are still there as well in the medium length linger.
Overall this is a very good reposado. Factor in that it can be found in the mid $20 range and it's a really good value. Milagro also makes a great mixer. It's easy to find, it tastes good and the price is right. All good reasons to go and get yourself a bottle.
You have to buy this one if you want to make cocktails (and certain cocktails because if you make a "submarino" could be a torture) like a "Diabla" that include some other strong taste ingredents bur let's pass to the tequila.
The body is not bad, the aroma is agave and alcohol (too alcoholic for me), the taste raw (not very comlex) and is most agave but the marked alcohol cut the enjoyability. The color is too clear (similar to a Joven or Mixto). I don't really like this one to take it straight in a shot glass (caballito) i prefer it on cocktails but i'll change it for a centenario reposado, el jimador or (of course) arette reposado if i could.
Este tequila es mejor para cocktails que involucren ingredientes con sabor fuerte como una diabla.
El cuerpo no está mal (algo aceitoso), el aroma es agave y alcohol (mucho alcohol para mi), el sabor es crudo y no muy complejo, mayormente sabe a agave pero con un marcado sabor a alcohol lo cual corta la posibilidad de poderlo disfrutar y retener en la boca. El color es muy claro similar a un tequila joven o un mixto. No me gusta mucho para tomarlo derecho en un caballito, pregiero tomarlo en cocktails pero si puedo cambiarlo por un Centenario reposado, Jimador o Arette reposado lo hago.
Let me first start by saying that this is my #1 tequila for mixing cocktails with.
Enjoying it straight I noticed the nose had a good agave and floral scent. The entry is smooth and sweet, maybe an little thin, with a small amount of alcohol numbing. On my initial taste I found citrus, nice agave flavor, spice and tea leaves. There was also a very slight amount of vanilla and some grassy notes. The body was light to medium, with an oily feel. It had a nice long dry finish.
I do like the simplicity of the bottle, with the red hue and painted name.
