    Depends on the price. It's basically similar to the current RdF extra anejo. If it's under $70, it's a steal. Over $100 and they're just trying to gouge you. It's a nice collector bottle though if you're interested in that.

    I don't know what I was expecting, but it's more "delicate"? than I thought it would be. That isn't a bad thing. I just figured it might be a bit more robust, for some reason. It has a great flavor that I found kind of citric and floral.

    I have to admit that I didn't give it a proper sit down tasting. I had people over and I was going between beer and a bottle of Patron that a buddy brought. He wanted to try the Don Julio, so I cracked it open and we had a small taste.

    I really need to sit down with a pour and get to know it before I can give a better opinion of it.

    Since I'm very new to Tequila, can someone please tell me what NOM means? I see it on tequila forums I've perused, but I have no idea what it means.

    The NOM is the government assigned number for that particular distillery. Having it ensures that the tequila is authentic. The same NOM can produce many different brands. They may be owned by the same company, but it may also be "contract distillery" that produces for a given brand owner.

    Here is a link that explains it pretty well:

    I finally got around to tasting the Don Julio Reposado that I purchased. Let me say that, for someone new to tequila, the nose on this stuff is incredible. I don't even know how to describe most of what I smell, but I like it! Upon tasting it is very smooth yet rich.

    I would say that it's similar to the current RdF but not quite as good. There seems to be some consensus that the JCA is the same juice as the best year or two of RdF from the early 2000s. If it's anywhere under $100 I'd say it's a great buy.

    I sat down with the Don Julio Reposado, with a clean palate. This stuff is amazing. The nose is honey and vanilla, which I also get on the palate. It's like drinking a liquid creamsicle with a bit of pepper.

    I agree, I'm starting to really like the stuff. Now I want to know what the Anejo tastes like...

    Picked up Tres Agave Blanco ($25) and El Mayor Anejo ($29). Both seemed liked good deals and I faintly remember Kevin (maxpower) gave them pretty good write ups. The Tres Agave was a gift pack with a lime squeezer and Agave Nectar bottle. It had a very fresh and clean flavor. I am looking forward getting a lime for a margarita with it but it is very in nice neat. What it makes me think of is that it is a non-tequila drinkers tequila but still all can enjoy. Would be nice to taste a bigger flavor at a higher abv. Is all tequila sold at 80 proof in the US?

    As for the El mayor, not sure what to think about it yet. I will say I think it is a nice price at $29 but that was a $10 off sale. I will need to get another pour, but I expected a little more smoothness with this one. It has a fantastic color out of the bottle. Not sure what the regs are for coloring tequila. I like the flavor on the palette just punched you a little on the finish.
