Bottle No. 3A 39,167 Medium Gold in color Thin consistency, fast legs. Slightly warming initial nasal impact. Butterscotch, oak, cooked agave, cinnamon and pepper on the aroma. Watery mouthfeel with mild alcohol. Caramel and honey are dominant on the palate. Cooked agave, cinnamon, pepper, vanilla, barrel spice and oak follow. There is a hint of unbuttered bran muffin on the retro nasal. Short finish with a lingering sweetness reminiscent of a bourbon. Almost drinks like a budget anejo, being how barrel forward it is. This is good for bourbon drinkers entering into the tequila world. For around $36, it's a budget friendly additive free reposado (although a bit too barrel forward for the kind of repo I prefer) but worth a try. I give this extra points for value, which just brings me to my 80 score.

very subtle nose with nice ripe agave and slightly vegetal. On the pallet slight matalitic taste, filled by a slight orange peel, minerals, earthiness and vanilla

Softly sweet, almost like a sugar cookie as in savory. Fun example of the nose not matching the palate. A sweet profile without being very fruity - notes of sweet cooked agave, honey, a hint of basil, and limestone.

Aroma is distinct with pepper and sour melon. Mouthfeel is a little thin. White pepper and raw agave with a little bubblegum overlay. Short-ish finish.

TMM additive free blind. Man this one was interesting to me. Little bit of sweetness on the nose but I was getting play-doh which was unique. Easy going palate with a lingering finish

Tasted blind. A little musty and grassy on the nose, with a light cooked agave flavor and creamy mouth. Extra points for value.
