NOM 1115 Nose is slightly sweet with a banana leave note. Agave and banana mid palate. Finish is a bit strange. Nothing at first. Then a bit of heat in the throat and then in the cheeks. It’s kinda like a not-cloying, super thin, high alcohol, banana liqueur. But it’s tequila.
On the Lobster Bus. Notes later. Thanks Scott Perry.
Slow wonderful tears. Caramel, lite oak and banana cinnamon nose. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Sweet entry with licorice and agave, followed by a medium pepper kick. Nice mouth feel. Toffee, chocolate and pepper warmth on the finish. Good value.
Agave, toffee citrus nose with light neutral oak. More oak than the nose presented. Vanilla and medium heat follow. Maple, nutty, warm longish finish.
Aromas start with alcohol, pepper, agave and cinnamon. I detect a smoky and almost rubber like note. Viscous and fruity. A little bitterness. Pleasant peppercorn and pitted fruit finish. Some residual warmth lingers and lingers...
Instead of sampling tequila in its birthplace, I reached out to six of the top tequila experts in Mexico to unearth their favorites.
Aroma; Yeast, bagase, alcohol, black pepper, sweet mature agave and smoke. Flavor includes dry fruits, pepper, sweet agave. Finish is medium with some bitterness after taste.
