Cazadores is best described as Cowboy tequila. Unlike most of the wonderful tequilas we review this, actually has a big alcohol kick. Seems like it would be great after a rough day.
This is the premium tequila of choice in Mexico, and probably because it's no frills good tequila.
Cazadores has a nice yellow color a bit lighter than honey, and it's moderately clear, slightly dull if you will. Not a very complex aroma, slightly vanilla and nutty smelling.
The initial taste reminds you that you are drinking a heavy spirit, Blue agave dominates the flavor and as you swallow back a big alcohol burn that warms you up as it goes down.
I like when a drink reminds you that you are drinking alcohol, but if you prefer not to taste the harshness of the alcohol I would suggest you use this mixed rather than straight up.

This is really good for the price,it seems that alot of people don't like Reposado's ,but I do and the only way to really find what you like is to try as many as you can find and make up your own mind, they all have a different taste,so I say buy a bottle and you decide. i've tried only about 25 different brands of all that they offer. from silvers ,Reposado's and Anejos ,some good,some bad.

I could see how some people would enjoy this, but it is not for me. Admittedly, I don't love reposado's to begin with, but this one in particular just didn't work for me.

The flavor of the wood in particular was just off to me - a very pronounced oak and very overpowering to the agave. I would have given the bottle away, but it tastes okay after I've had a few glasses of something else so I am slowly finishing it off that way.

Aside from that there was a nice presence of the agave, a slightly oily body, and a moderate burn on the aftertaste.

(I would have rated it lower based on just my tastes, but I could see how some people would like the distinct wood flavor.) I wouldn't purchase again, nor will I drink it again after my current bottle is gone.

Tasted in a caballito on July 26, 2008 thin legs sticking to the side of the glass.

Cazadores Reposado

Color: slight gold tint
Aroma: agave & white pepper
Taste: pepper, agave with a hard to find taste of oak, very light oil mouthfeel that has a burn numbing the entire mouth

Cazadores Reposado is very close to their blanco with the only difference being a slight wood aged taste. For the price and taste this reposado is best for cocktails and not much of a sipper for reposado fans. As of this writing my favorite reposados are Chinaco, Sol Azul, Casa Noble & Corralejo. I gave Cazadores a low Presentation due to it's screw top and funky spout.

Tasted 07/19/08 out of a double ball glass. Cazadores reposado is a very light reposado. I think I prefer less rested reposados. I think this is an excellent 'beginner' reposado tequila. I actually prefer the reposado for this brand!
Aroma: Very faint agave.
Initial Taste: An light oily feel. On the tip of the tongue it had a very sweet taste.
Body: A very delicate agave body with light hints of smoke and wood.
Finish: Of very short duration, yet with no alcohol burn.
