Here we have a tequila with a deer on it. That makes no more sense to me than it does to you friend. (Okay I mean to be fair the white tailed deer does actually live all across America from Canada to Mexico, but in a choice of those 2 countries you would take Canada every time) Any way not to spoil the review, but this is actually a tequila that we like in case you were worried considering how we’ve been bashing them lately.
Spoiler for the what they say section, but I feel like the spanish word for impregnado isn’t meant to be imbued, but instead be impregnated despite how funny that sounds in context. Anyway I think what the best part of this tequila is that it doesn’t hold back in the power of it’s taste. This is shown in every possible way perhaps a bit too much, however in doing this it sets itself apart. It does this by making sure that potency doesn’t include bad or off tastes and burning that some other cheaper alternatives would do.
What they Say: “Cazadores reposado, impregnado con el espíritu del suelo mexicano, aromas a maderas ahumadas, cítricos radiantes, agave y las especias más puras.”
(Translation) “Cazadores Reposado , imbued with the spirit of Mexican soil , aromas of smoky wood, radiant citrus , agave and the purest spices.”
Taste: 7.0 – That first brush of agave hits strong, and it’s not bad by any stretch.
Aftertaste: 6.5 – But that power lingers on, and even the long reach aftertaste is still very much on your mind. It also gets into your nose with the taste.
Burn/Smooth: 6.0 – There is some burn, and the taste will linger instead of warmth. Not bad though.
Aroma: 6.0 – Potent. I was actually worried about if I had a stuffy nose today, but if I did – it’s gone now. It’s not 100% agave in smell, but damn is it strong.
Manliness: 8.5 – It has a deer which I assume is because hunting, and they made me translate it because they couldn’t be bothered. Even the translation isn’t wanky. They earn some good points here.
Tequila and Lime: 7.0 – It makes a good drink for this that won’t kill you, but still has powerful flavor.
Tequila Sunrise: 7.0 – You will likely want to adjust your normal ratio for this to work well, but pare the booze down a bit more to lessen it’s power and it’s actually a pretty good drink.
Value: 6.0 – This is tough for me, because while this is good – I could get Milagro for the same price. While that does have more Eurotrashy look problems – it’s a better tequila overall. Not by much though.
Google Shop Average: $28

Final Thoughts: This is the kind of tequila that if it was in the 20 dollar price range would cause me to sing it’s praises from the hills. To be fair 28 isn’t bad at all to pay for this. A tequila though that combos power without giving you an ‘ick’ factor, and mixes damn well? That’s 2 out of the 3 pillars for me in terms of buying things (I mean outside of, buy random to reivew).
