Excerpt: There’s just enough brown sugar and vanilla in here to add some depth and character to the herbal agave, black pepper, and citrus, but without washing out the rest of the flavors. This hits the nail on the head for what a reposado tequila should be doing: adding just a hint of barrel aging to mellow out the spirit and resulting in some unique and delicious notes.
Excerpt: The palate showcases lemon pith and grapefruit zest, along with dark chocolate, and grassiness. The finish is short, with butterscotch, tannic oak, and roasted agave. While not bad, it's a bit thin and astringent, lacking oomph.
Excerpt: The palate does show some of the sweetness one expects from a reposado, but not an overwhelming amount. Still, it’s enough to temper the heavy earthiness that the blanco shows, and as it develops in the glass, some butterscotch and lemon elements begin to dominate, giving the finish more of a welcome approachability.
