A common tequila where 100% agave quality is desired but money is tight, Cazadores is a solid choice among budget tequilas, though it’s hardly anything out of the ordinary.
Cazadores Reposado is a pungent tequila, with intense agave notes. The two months of aging (in new oak barrels) give it a just a light color, and it does add a touch of caramel to give the tequila more balance. But on the whole this is a fairly prototypical reposado, brilliantly agave in tone with strong herbal notes but, it must be said, lots of bite and a rough finish.
Worth a shot for that pitcher of margaritas.
