So this is part two of the tasting the other night. I have to say i didn't leave anything in the glass to come back to after the initial taste. Don't know if that meant that the pour was short or I really enjoyed this. I think it was a bit of both. The first thing I noticed about this reposado is that the coloring was a bit more golden straw like not as caramelly. On the nose there was a fair bit of lemon as well as agave. This carried through to the palate where again there was a fair bit of citrus, with some caramel and vanilla. The body was fairly soft without a tonne of depth but smooth and the finish medium in length. The price seems to be fairly high for the product. Though the product here is quite good the price was quite high. Presentation is unique but doesn't really do it for me.
After really liking the blanco and anejo, I had to give the reposado a try. Sadly, it's probably the weakest of the line.
Aroma: Light agave scent, fruit and light smoke.
Initial Taste: Light fruity sweetness.
Body: Thin mouth feel. Agave, spice, wood and a bit of citrus make for a decent overall flavor.
Finish: Probably the best part. A nice strong mix of flavors and a nice, long and complex linger. Really nice finish.
I like this line. The price often varies a lot. I bought this for $30 and for that price, it's a good value. For $45, it not nearly as good a buy. It's a nice overall repo in a modern looking bottle.
Pale in color. Pleasant initial nose. Mild agave note that is initially sweet and finishes clean with a mellow wood flavor. In 1 - 2 ounces it is surprisingly smooth. When attempting to drink it in larger quantities it takes on a warm bite. The Pepper and smoke come out and can be a little harsh after three good tugs on the bottle. All-in-all, it is a descent tequila for its price. I like it better than 1800 reposado and less than Patron. I found it a good value at $24.95. The bottle is unique but it kind of reminds me of a large bottle of cologne.
Very pale straw-gold colour - generously full-bodied and viscous. Nose is mild with agave and fruit, maybe melon. Sweet entry gives way to a wallop of agave and peppermint. Other than a mineral note creeping in, there is little flavour development in the body. Finish is lengthy, with pepper, mint, minerals and a sniff of smoke. It leaves a very long peppery tingle on the tongue which this reviewer finds a bit excessive.
Overall it is a decent reposado, but far from a great one.
Trago Reposado NOM 1474 Tasted on 4/4/08 at 9:55pm. I tried this tequila at the Grad Tequila Bar in Davis, CA and tasted it in a snifter. With a pale yellow golden color, this tequila has intense aromas of floral and earth with moderate fruit. Other aromas include mild spice followed by hints of smoke. The tequila has a thin to medium mouth feel and on the first sip is sweet with no bitterness. Trago Reposado has intense and overpowering floral flavors followed by moderate to intense notes of agave. With a medium to long duration of flavor, tastes of mild vanilla, fruit, and earth bring this tequila to a numbing finish. This tequila does not taste natural to me. Trago Reposado has received the rating of 85/86 points out of 100.
