Happy Labor Day everyone! Despite the fact that most of you have the day off, I am choose to "work" laboriously to make sure that all of the tequila information searching folks can have some agave related reading. Generally when I write the first draft of a review, it is my first time tasting that particular tequila. However, Tapatío Repsoado I have had it a few times before, but just never put pen to paper. The recent review of the Excelencia made me really want to go back and evaluate the rest of line that I had not yet reviewed.

Price: $35-40/bottle

Aroma: Lots of the vegetal agave notes that are signature from NOM 1139. Really light barrel sweetness (vanilla) and a hint of oak and smoke as well. The agave is still by far the most present aroma.

Initial Taste:Great balance of agave, oak and spice. The light sweetness tastes all natural, not contrived or created by additives.

Body: The oak advances to the forefront a bit more along with a peppery agave kick. The balance with the sweetness is great and the natural/green flavor is still very present.

Finish: A very long, spicy and pepper-filled finish. There's a hint of bitterness from the oak, but the vegetal pepper is what lingers on the palate the longest.

This is a wonderfully balanced repo at a non-premium price. A full liter for under $35 is great value for a juice of this caliber. This is not a "sweet" reposado. The agave notes are the most present with just a kiss from the barrel. Very balance, spicy and delicious.

My second review of the Tapatio line.

Agave, wood and vanilla on the nose. Same on the initial taste, along with a slight peppery kick. Delicious. Oily enough to coat the mouth nicely. Medium length finish that mirrors the initial taste; agave, vanilla and wood.

Two for two so far from Tapatio. A really nice Reposado.
