We tasted Tequila Tapatio Excelencia - Gran Reserva at Meeting No. 35 on April 30, 2015. We rated it very highly at 3.42 out of 5. Tequila Tapatio Excelencia - Gran Reserva ranks 17th overall in Tequila. At a street price of $160, this spirit is expensive given the our rating of it.
Crazy the scent is reminiscent of a tomato plant or a pungent Mexican fruit stand. The taste barely resembles tequila and has a mellow acidic taste with a hint of dried cherry or prune. Even crazier, had a second pour and the smell and taste completely change…
Nose - cedar bark woody ~ earthy pleasant. Taste - Complex yet light in the mouth; malty roasted flavors. Finish - dry tobacco tones.
Nose is musty then caramel-y. Palate complex and woody with a hint of spice.
Don't let the musky barn smell fool you! It's robust and full flavored with hints of cedar, corn, and hay. A great drink for the end of the evening.
Stanky freshly spread bark aroma. Herbal, rubber cement.
Nose: Saturday afternoon matinee and cedar mulch and very old library dust and vanilla. Taste - metallic and vibrant, dark caramel.
Dig this. Diverse but not complicated. Musty, great late night by the fire or on the beach. Wood. My kind of dessert.
A huge nose of wet wood. Dusty and herbal. Very light on the front, finishes more full.
Complex flavors. Pepper, varnish, vanilla, caramel.
Like laying down mulch on a rainy day.
Cedar bark up front on the nose, medicinal on the back end. earthy. Hard to pinpoint the mid-range. More complex - maybe too much? Like a Stravinsky composition -- I might Walk out on it.
