Launched in 1994 and named after the men who hand harvest agaves with a razor sharp coa, the Jimador brand is a sister offering to Herradura. The hugely popular Reposado represents 70% of production and is aged for two months in white oak barrels. While it started life as a 100% agave tequila, it was reduced to a mixto during the 1999/2000 agave crisis but in 2009, El Jimador reclaimed its all-agave status. Famously smooth with notes of cooked agave, vanilla and light caramel sweetness, the producers recommend it with grapefruit soda, lime juice and a hint of salt in a highball glass. 38% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Complex aromas of wet earth, vanilla, jalapeño and campfire ash entice the nose. The palate opens with vanilla, transitioning to a peppery midpalate and finishing long, with delicate violet, coconut, black pepper and cinnamon notes. 93 points - wineenthusiast.com

"Notes of cooked agave, light oak and vanilla are joined by a slight hint of baked cherry pie on the nose. On the palate, this medium-bodied tequila coats the tongue with pleasant vanilla and caramel flavors complemented by more fruit notes, especially cherry and strawberry. Light oak and cinnamon notes and a touch of earthiness add to the complex flavor profile. It presents a medium length finish, with alcohol, white pepper and agave appearing initially before a quick hint of agave nectar and cherry finish things off." 92 points - distiller.com

...Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of roasted nuts and peppers in wax paper, chocolate citrus peels, epazote-pepper relish, and geranium with a supple, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a warming, breezy finish evoking accents of herb-bark tincture, pickled chiles, and vanilla almond milk. A savory, herbal Reposado for cocktails. Bronze Medal - tastings.com
