Aroma: I get a good amount of cooked and fresh agave up front. There’s a little hint of brown sugar, molasses coming through. I pick up a little citrus, like stewed lemon. There is a pop of bright and raw.. citrus. Flavor: cooked agave, citrus, baking spice, like baked yam, clove, a hint of cinnamon. I get that raw, fresh agave I think in the flavor as well. It’s a nice pop of freshness that brings some complexity. I’m picking up some spearmint and anise on the back of my palette that I really enjoy. A little alcohol on the back end. Finish: Nice. Not super long but the agave fades nicely. Not much alcohol present at any point. No real tingle. Overall: this is a gem. Reminds me a little of El Tesoro. Lots of cooked agave, fresh, clean. Got this for $38 in Palm Springs. It’s a steal at that price.

1580? Butterscotch. Oak. Tasty but disjointed.

NOM 1580…. Agave sweetness …. Like a fig and chocolate bitterness

Definition of a solid old school añejo. Nose and palate are a perfect match and well balanced. Agave forward, dried fig, raisins, yams, mocha, cinnamon spice all come together nicely to make this older NOM 1079 version a must in any home bar. Harder to find now. So grab any you can find.

Unmistakable earthy NOM 1079 blanco. Warm oily feel with lots of agave, Bazooka Joe, pear, touch of granny Smith coming through nicely. Floral and fruit with sweet agave lingering nicely. Excellent stuff.

NOM 1079 version. A very complex old school feel all the way through on this one. Warm cooked agave, butterscotch, yams, figs, mocha on the nose. Nose matches the palate nicely. Phenomenal XA. Treasure bottle. Wish I could find another.
