A bright reposado, blending citrusy agave and spicy oak. Highly recommended.

Pros:Full body, full flavor, nice bright citrus notes.

Cons:Some might consider it a bit over-oaked.

The Bottom Line: Swirl the glass a bit: those legs mean this tequila retained it essential oils, and how!:  citrus, oak, vanilla, a touch of caramel, and very smooth.


I didn't expect to like Sauza's Tres Generaciones reposado tequila. The company's other entry into the 100% agave market, Hornitos, has the nickname "green bug spray" for good reason; it's so bad that it might as well be a mixto. And mixtos are the other thing the company is know for: harsh, adulterated stuff brought to the U.S. in tanker trucks and sold to college kids who simply want a buzz. But this, this is good.

By "good" I mean "better than Patrón good", or "up there with Don Julio good". Tres Generaciones is a considerably fuller-flavored and fuller-bodied tequila than Patrón, leaving considerable legs on the side of the glass, and without any burn on the way down. Relative to smoky, somewhat floral Don Julio reposado this is a "bright"-tasting reposado with considerable citrus and vanilla flavor.  Oak or not, I'd actually call it more similar to Don Julio plata than to the reposado.   It's also considerably richer, which may be desirable or not, depending on taste and the mood. 

Blue agave aromas, here with bright orange-oil overtones and a hint of milk chocolate and spearmint, are punctuated by fresh, terpenaceous oak. Its taste is very well-rounded. While only modestly sweet, oaky vanilla and caramel make Tres Generaciones seem sweeter, and at the same time bring out  very citrusy agave notes and a generous hit of spicy oak at the end.  Some might call this over-oaked, but the agave is strong enough here, almost creamy, to not be overwhelmed.

Sauza or not, Tres Generaciones Reposado is a fine tequila to sip at room temperature from a tulip or wine glass. Although it is very different, classify it as you would Don Julio in at least one sense: better than the more well-known Patrón for the same price or lower.
