Tasted out of a double ball glass. Milagro Reposado is one of those rare cases where I actually enjoy the reposado more than the blanco. While I feel that Milagro blanco is a little bland, I felt like the aging brought out more of the flavors in this reposado.
Aroma: slight caramel and earthy notes.
Initial Taste: A very nice sweet on the tip of tongue with no bitterness. A semi oily mouth feel.
Body: A very subtle agave lightly complimented by carmel and spices.
Finish: A medium semi heated finish with no burn.
Milagro Reposado NOM 1420 Tasted on 5/27/07 at 7:40pm. I tried this tequila in a blind tasting at Zocalo out of a snifter. The tequila is a pale yellow color and is aged for 6 months. Milagro Reposado aromas consist of intense floral and fruit aspects followed by mild vanilla, spice, and earth. On the lighter side, this Reposado has a hint of smoke. On the tip of tongue, this tequila is mellow and has a medium mouth feel. While the tequila has moderate agave flavor, it has a medium amount of sweetness and a small amount of bitterness. The flavor of this tequila was intense earth, fruit, and floral followed by mild notes of chemicals and spice. Upon finishing this tequila, there is a medium-to-long duration of flavor and numbing alcohol intensity. I have rated this tequila at 86 out of 100 points.
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.
Tasted in a caballito on April 19, 2008 sticking to the side of the glass eventually showing lasting legs.
Color: light golden hue
Aroma: agave, clay, smoke
Taste: chocolate chip mint ice cream with a medium mouthfeel and smooth burn in the finish
For the price I do not think you can find a better Reposado. Good for cocktails and great straight. My three favorite reposado at the time of this writing have to be Sol Azul, Casa Noble & Corralejo still. Though this Milagro is the Tequila to use for the party drinks.
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.
