I like this stuff, for mixing (French Intervention, classic 3-2-1 Margarita). It's good without being past the point of diminishing returns. Reasonable price without being cheap and harsh.

Tasted on 12/31/12 from a Reidel glass. Sometimes your palate just changes. Or could it be the juice? I've always thought Hornitos was a great deal for the price. It's been one of my low-cost, but smooth tequilas and can be sipped or mixed. Tonight, however, it seems harsh and a little bitter compared to what I've remembered in the past; a little disappointing. I couldn't place the aroma tonight, but it seemed a little buttery, but has a bitter after burn I haven't noticed before. Given all that, I still say it's a good value for the price ($27 on sale at Costco for 1.75l bottle). I won't give up on it by any means, but I'll try it again in the near future and see if the smoothness I remembered returns. In the meantime, I'll make margaritas with it. Happy New Year y salud.

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.

Very fruity, both the nose and first taste hits you with the taste of pear. Sauza hornitos reposado is a little bit too fruity for a tequila in my opinion but whould probably fit in at party during a hot summer day.

Sauza Hornitos (New) Reposado NOM 1102 Tasted on 4/18/08 at 10:15pm. I tried this tequila at the Graduate in Davis, CA and tasted it out of a snifter. The tequila is a pale yellow color. The Hornitos aromas consist of intense fruit and floral aspects followed by mild earth. On the lighter side, this Reposado has hints of spice. On the tongue, this tequila is mellow and has a thin mouth feel. While the tequila has moderate agave flavor, it is semi sweet and has no bitterness. The flavor of this tequila contains intense notes of fruit and floral followed by moderate agave. Deeper flavors of Hornitos Reposado consist of mild spice and hints of chemicals, wood, and earth. Upon finishing this tequila, there is a medium duration of flavor and numbing alcohol intensity. I have rated this tequila at 83 out of 100 points.
