Well then I think it’s about time we seriously started moving into reviewing the previously untapped market for us – namely tequilas that are not silver. In order to ease this more than previous attempts – we decided to grab the reposado of a silver that we actually like.
Sadly though it appears that once again stepping outside of our comfort zone (it’s scotch, scotch is our comfort zone – not that we are particularly better at reviewing it, but we are very comfortable) – we get our heads bitten off. Although I suppose it could have been much worse.
What they Say: “” (They say nothing)
Taste: 6.0 – It starts off with that sweetness you get from the aroma.
Aftertaste: 4.0 – Sadly it does not follow with the mellowing flavors. In a way it almost combines with the burn to produce something not likable at all.
Burn/Smooth: 3.0 – This is not smooth, which is sad.
Aroma: 7.0 –It’s got that sweet agave but it’s mellowed out by other flavors, and actually is quite nice if just a little too sugary smelling.
Manliness: 7.0 – While I do like the lack of wank and the cut of the bottle, I also have to give it manliness points for being a Reposado tequila that burns like a tequila. I know this seems odd, but with tequila it’s manly if it’s bad, or SUPER good, but anywhere in between isn’t manly – and silvers tend to get less manly as well.
Tequila and Lime: 6.0 – The addition of salt and lime does improve that aftertaste if I’m quick enough.
Tequila Sunrise: 5.5 – Makes an okay sunrise.
Value: 6.0 – While that isn’t bad value, not sure if I wouldn’t grab something else.

Final Thoughts: Get the silver, although possibly the anejo is just really good, perhaps one day we’ll find out.
