Nose: agave / smoke / earth / pepper/ hint of lime / hay / tea / sage / mineral Taste: sweet agave / vanilla / pepper / cinnamon / banana/ apple / peach / lime/ anise / spearmint / hint of smoke Finish: very clean watery mouthfeel/ some smoke holds through the taste but it’s mostly agave, vanilla / cinnamon that lingers on This chato 46 has just the right amount of smoke and bolder flavors (from high proof) to make you a beliver in using non- standard practices and ingredients to create something delicious. It’s not exactly tequila…technically, but the flavor makes you not care.

Nose: agave cooked / smoke / earth / pepper/ lactic funk (very minimal) / citrus/ orange peel / lemongrass / basil / herbs/ hint of flora / Taste: cooked agave sweet / caramel/ cinnamon/ pepper / banana/ slight citrus / mint / tea / cream soda/ Finish: this high proof agave spirit has some delicious sweetness and a hint of cinnamon and pepper spicy that work in concert with each other. It’s a clean rainwater type of mouthfeel that works well to remove the smokiness. This agave spirit has a 46% abv which works well to bring out more robust flavors, which works for me because it covers up a lot of the smokiness. It’s very good, but loses points from me for the bitterness that comes with the smoke.
