Good(not great) off the nose, really viscous and hot in the palette. Takes an odd turn away from agave on the back end, not necessarily bad but not what I am looking for.
50% ABV hence the TKO moniker and the boxing glove bottle. A very nice presentation from 8 or 10 years ago. This bottle has a tax stamp from 2007. Medicinal on the nose this is quite strong with regard to alcohol and not as well balanced as other high proof product currently in the market. This really reminds me of the El Viejito 55 or Pueblo Viejo 104.
Revised 10/19/2018 Complex nose. A lot going on here. At first pass, juniper berries. Then peach, bananas, and green beans. A nice blast of earth and minerals. Unique flavor profile. Starts with vanilla wafers and agave, and green pepper, then turns on the jalapeño heat with some bitter notes - perhaps the juniper berry nose influence. Finishes with 100 proof heat and pepper tickling my tummy.
Definitely has some added vanilla but not a bad sipper
