Trianon Tequila Reposado

Trianon Tequila Reposado is 100% Agave produced at Tequilera Las Juntas in Amatitan, Jalisco, Mexico. Trianon Tequila Reposado rests for 6 months in both American and French oak barrels and is blended before bottling.

Third generation master distillers, Alejandro and Saul Ocampo, use traditions and techniques created long ago. Every batch of Trianon Tequila is small and not mass produced, and created only when the time is right. The distillery is located in Amatitan, which sits at the foot of El Colcan de Tequila (the Volcano of Tequila), where the rich, volcanic soil makes the Blue Weber Agave grow larger and more luscious than anywhere else.

A few weeks back I reviewed the Trianon Blanco and was pleasantly surprised. Nice natural flavors, great packaging and well priced. So, I think it's time to move on to the reposado and see if the barrel treats this one well. If you want a little more brand background, please look back at the blanco review. For now, I'm going in...

Price: $30-35/bottle
Aroma: A big cooked agave aroma fills your nose. There's hint of citrus and nutmeg (or other brown spice) as well. A really inviting nose.
Initial Taste: More green than the nose might indicate. The agave flavor is potent up front with vegetal notes and strong pepper. Not as sweet as it was on the aroma.
Body: Medium bodied. A slight hint of bitterness from the wood and still a nice peppery kick. The brown spices are back as well.
Finish: A fairly lengthy finish with some nice oak notes and lengthy pepper linger. All in all a solid finish.

Much like the blanco, this is a solid entry. It has the balance that a good reposado should have and a strong agave kick. Priced about where it should be in the marketplace. I'll say it again. If you can find the 3 stack, pick it up and have fun with the Trianon vertical. I'm looking forward to digging into the añejo soon

The nose has a little bit of caramel and oak, but as with the blanco, I get some sourness. Initial taste is more caramel and oak - fairly sweet. The sourness fades, but it's still a little tart. Body is light-to-medium..ish, but no coating or oiliness to speak of. The finish is smoother than the blanco, but rather muted - caramel and raw agave stick around.

The reposado was more enjoyable than the blanco with the caramel flavor, but still not a contender in the premium market. Frankly, it is over-priced and really doesn't belong in the premium price group. I purchased the flight of stacked 375ml bottles, which is clever. I have also seen the individual 750ml bottles in the store - attractive, but not anything special or unique. Note that in the stacked set, the bottom two are the aged products, and the spout is very short and difficult to pour from, and they have a very small natural cork.
