What seems like ages ago, I discovered the Tierras brand with the blanco at Hi Times Wines for $19.99 and I fell in love with it. Then I tasted the añejo and was not as impressed. So, the reposado has sat there with the seal in tact for over a year and I'm finally finishing up the final piece of the line-up. I'm approaching it with an open mind; after all NOM 1502 makes some quality stuff.

Price: $25-35/bottle

Aroma: The nose leans more toward the profile of the blanco than the añejo. The agave is there with a grassy compliment. Definitely not too much oak.

Initial Taste: A solid agave entry with the grassy notes and floral and citrus hint. The oak is again very light on the front of the palate.

Body: The body is a little thin and mid-palate it lacks a bit of flavor. The oak comes forward more and stops the agave from shining as much as it did previously.

Finish: There's a hint of bitterness from the oak and the agave punch is fairly light. There's nothing displeasing about it, but it lacks a little oomph on the finish.

At the lower end of the price range on this one, it's still a pretty good value. The profile is consistent and it has elements that will please those who don't want an overly sweet repo. All in all, it's a solid but not spectacular reposado.

After enjoying the blanco so much, I was anxious to try the repo from this line. The nose is nice, very similar to the blanco, but with a hint of oak as you would expect. It has that organic nose, mostly agave, but with a bit of vegetal and earthiness.

Initial taste is sweet agave, but again the oak starts to come through, but almost with a perfumey note added. I'm not crazy about that perfume - not sure how else to describe it. Dare I say it has a bit of Casa Cuervo taste?

The body is medium and semi-oily, which I like, except when the taste is off a bit. Finish on this is smooth, with mimimal burn of fairly short duration.

I like the blanco better than the repo here, and will probably go ahead and try the anejo, too. I like my tequilas simple, and this one is fairly simple, but there is a taste in this repo that I don't care for.
