Amate Reposado - Aged in American white oak barrels for 6 months to develop a fuller flavor.

Tequila Amate is one of the highest caliber, made from 100% pure Blue Agave. That's how ultra-premium Amate delivers the smooth balanced, authentic flavor in all three of its award winning varieties.

Previously produced at NOM 1137, Amate changed to NOM 1173 in 2012.

Aroma: Pleasant caramel scent to go with the wood and agave notes.
Initial Taste: A nice thick entry with agave and wood.
Body: Like the Anejo, it coats the mouth well and delivers a lot of flavors. Agave, pepper, wood and a chocolate hint as well.
Finish: A medium linger that follows the tastes in the body very well. The dark chocolate linger stays for a while...almost like a mocha taste.

It's good, not great. I like the anejo better for sure. For those who like the coffee/chocolate taste in their aged tequilas, this is up your alley. It just seemed to lose to much agave for me to really be great even if the complexity was strong.

Purchased for $34.99 at Mission it's a decent value. I like the design and corks of Amate's bottles even though it is fairly simple.

Wow, what can I say about this tequila- Well I am an avid single malt scotch drinker and the Amate Reposado, drinks like a fine single-malt. When you first nose this tequila, you have hints Cherry then you get a nice dose of vanilla and then caramel. After your first sip, nose the glass again and a very sweet aroma takes over and your next sip will taste, honey with a touch of Maple. Repeat this process and each sip takes on a new flavor profile!

This is a great sipping tequila, I don't even use ice on this one, but if you do, just use 2 or 3 cubes, like you would with a high quality scotch.

I am a big fan of LaCofradia tequilas, especially their Reposados, they are very clean and spicy. They have true Agave Flavor and no bitterness.

This is on a par with casa Nobles in my book...well done

This tequila is pretty sweet and I can smell and taste a bit of chocolate, weird to have that flavor in tequila, but I like it.
