Profile is very similar to the prior 1146 product, somewhat sweet though not cloying or sugary.
Candy tequila ! IMHO this tequila does not seem natural. Too sweet!
NOTE- this is the NOM 1146 version. Aromas of rose wine, fruit, floral, light vanilla, some chocolate. Taste comes through for the rose wine and floral notes, with some chocolate and some fruit. Actually it isn't as bad as I anticipated, not overly sweet, and no lingering sweet aftertaste. Thismay not be for everyone, but for what it is.... it was pretty tasty.
NOM 1146. Got this 5 year XA like 3 years ago, my palate has expanded a bit since to say the least and I lean towards blancos/agave heavy tequilas most of the time now. This is not that, through no fault of its own. It’s very oak heavy, with lots of caramel and vanilla, very sweet. It’s smells great, quick finish. No agave notes though, like with most tequilas that spend too much time in a barrel, the agave gets lost. It’s very smooth and is an easy sipper though. Most will enjoy but more diehard aficionados might want to look to other XA’s like Tapatio’s Excelencia for a more enjoyable pour.
Lou shares his opinion of an old bottle of Asombroso Reposado from NOM 1146.
The Orange County Register reports that Ricardo Gamarra, owner of Rancho Santa Margarita-based AsomBroso Tequila, announced last week that Lopez signed on to partner with the tequila line to help spread the word about the brand.
AsomBroso Tequila have announced that their AsomBroso Del Porto Tequila is now available for pre-order through an exclusive website.
NOM 1146 Been years since I've drank this. I must re-visit to see if my palate changed. Should get interesting.
