This is a vintage Green Label Gran Centenario añejo, from back in the day...Not what you will find on store shelves today. Nose: Ripe red, jammy fruit. A warm vanilla and baking spice blend. Some orange zest. A little “snap” to the nose. Rich and fruity round oak aromas. The oak notes creep up in magnitude as it opens up. Flavors: Oily, spicy, peppery. A Cointreau note. Dark ripe cherries. Vanilla, nutmeg and leather. It’s like an opulent dessert with kick. Finishing impressions: Not crazy complex, but has a pleasing warm, comfortable style.

Bottle has 2008 stamp and is 35% ABV. Absolutely awful, this is weak sugar water with a minimal amount of wood and alcohol, I think. No, just no.

Artificial sweetness and lacks agave and blanco characteristics

Nose: An unidentifiable floral or fruity note layered in oak sawdust. Arid earth. Flavor: Hot and bitter entry. There is some sweetness that has an aftertaste that is not pleasant. Hints of caramel or butterscotch, but masked in the overwhelming bitterness.

Aroma: Pineapple flavored Lifesaver candy, a hint of cinnamon and mint, and sweetened Pine-Sol. Flavor: Artificial sweetener with significant bitterness. Some canned fruit flavors, with a tinny aftertaste. Not detecting any familiar blanco characteristics or agave. Finish: Just nothing to recommend here.

Smells and tastes like grandmas spice cupboard, that’s a win in this case as it’s intended(I assume) as an ingredient for cocktails. Soft, earthy finish lingers on forever, this might be a great addition to a late evening cocktail.
