We were pretty excited to try this tequila after having enjoyed the anejo, and it was excellent, even if just a step short of it’s vaunted sibling. It’s a beautiful, pale, golden color for a repo. Interestingly, we found smoke in the taste, something we haven’t seen in too many repos. The rest was agave, and that’s a good thing. A solid choice that you’ll always be happy with, and a great gift. With money not factored in, you can find more interesting/complex tequlias, but if a buddy shows up with this, you’re going to issue an immediate high five and open it.
