El Tesoro Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Reviewed February 11, 2022
This is my go to reposado tequila for cocktails (one's that are spirit forward). Unlike a lot of reposado tequilas that I have tried, this one tends to have less pronounced oak and sweetness and leans more heavily on the agave. The nose is a bit light, but you get the agave and a mineral like smell. The palate is where this one shines, as it has hints of smoke, lime, spice and a touch of sweetness. The finish is pretty long, with no heat and a bit briney. Overall, it's hard to go wrong with this tequila. It's a touch expensive, which is why I don't use it in cocktails that tend to have large amounts of juice or mixer in it. But neat, this is one of the better reposado tequilas out there. I would probably still favor the blanco over this, but not by much. It would probably come down to preference, but either way you can't go wrong with either (and really the anejo for that matter).
