Name: El Mayor Reposado
Nose: White Pepper, Vanilla, Light Floral Notes
Palate: Vanilla, Caramel, Agave
Finish: Moderate, light, and sweet with caramel, vanilla, and honey.
Overall: I first tried this tequila earlier this year at a bourbon tasting in St. Louis. On the nose there is a noticeable white pepper aroma with some vanilla and light floral notes similar to honeysuckle. On the palate vanilla and caramel were the two distinct flavors but there were some light honey and apple flavors. The finish was moderate and light with caramel, vanilla, and honey and no burn. This was an exceptionally smooth tequila, no burn or bite and was truly an easy sipper. This one was best enjoyed neat as adding a splash diluted the flavor too much in my opinion. This is a great bottle of tequila for those looking for an easy sipper or something not too strong and also perfect for those looking to get into sipping tequilas as it is easy to approach. El Mayor Reposado is made from 100% blue agave and is aged for 9 months. Overall, I enjoyed this whiskey a bit more than I did the Blanco; however, both are good tequila worthy of a spot on any tequila lovers shelf.
