Review: Amigo Reposado bf4e
Amigo bf4e Tequila Reposado - NOM 1079 - 40%
NOM 1079 reposados haven't all been wins for me i.e. I was ho-hum on Don Alejo Reposado , but Oro Azul Reposado is an all-time fav. Regardless, tons of quality contract distillate came out of NOM 1079 before the NOM disbanded around a decade ago. I believe the Amigo bf4e brand only released a reposado expression and unabashedly leaned into early-aughts acronyms - Best Friends Forever.
Notes: Nose jumps out of the glass - musty, cheesy, savory, pungent (all good), some softer baking spices as well. Palate is bold as well. All the spices up front (sweet and savory). Full mouthfeel. Butter, fresh peppers. Salted caramel in a long, low-heat finish. Rich, bold, and full from the nose through the finish.
Score: 8 (Stash One) Absolutely delish. Crushable. Lots of big notes here.
