Super unique and funky aroma that took me by surprise with dark tones of chocolate and pleather. Love it because it’s different but equally hate it for being so LOL!! Starts off tasting like a standard tequila then turns into a fucking Tootsie Roll :/ The producer either got weird with yeasts or there’s some as Skid Row would say, “Monkey Business” going on!! Where is the agave?? Where is there a “sense of place”?? Meh. Would drink if it’s free, but never would spend a peso on this. I’d recommend it for someone to see what happens things get weird but not for the right reasons. Aka ADDITIVES!!

Is this a trend that’s driven purely by financial incentives, whether to cash in like Clooney and company, or to profit from America’s increasing appreciation of the spirit?
