Herradura Reposado NOM 1119 Tasted 2/12/07. The tequila is a darker yellow golden color and has an intense earthy and floral aromas. Once you get past the intensity of the nose, you can smell moderate notes of fruit and vanilla. On the tip of the tongue the tequila is mellow and soft but yet has a moderate agave taste. While the tequila has a low bitterness, it is actually fairly sweet. The flavor has intense agave and earthy attributes which are followed by moderate floral flavors. Lastly, there are mild flavors of fruit, vanilla, and spicy accents. The tequilas finish is a long duration of flavor followed by a numbing alcohol feeling. Overall, I rated this tequila at the A- level.
