Sauza Hornitos Reposado, NOM 1102. Tasted in a 2oz Cognac snifter. This was the first premium tequila I ever purchased & I haven't traveled this sentimental journey in quite awhile until now. Medium amber with green hues in color. The nose was earthy agave with some smoky oak, not much depth & some alcohol. The first taste was somewhat sweet, slight oak, & alcohol. The overall taste had diminished sweetness from the initial taste, mellowed somewhat, & finished rather quickly across the tongue with a slight numbing/open effect. I found Hornitos to be fairly smooth, much like I remember. Still a good buy but as good as the $3.50 a liter I first purchased it for in Reynosa, NL, MX a few extended years ago. I also plan on trying the new blanco & anejo soon. "Copa de ORO." All things considered, this tequila is a solid B.
