Exceptional blanco and well worth the price. Smooth agave on the nose, followed by floral and citrus fades. Cooked agave followed quickly by carmely vanillaish flavors falling into sweets.
A viscous tequila that is vegetal in nature, indicative of the harvest. The initial aroma, to me, smelled like croutons, which i have to think ties back to the leavenings in the fermentation process. The citrus lingers on the palate. Very fruit forward and aromatic. Flavors of black pepper and agave throughout. It has a sweet, olive brine finish that lasts a long time.
Smooth sweet burnt agave with pepper finish ... Yes, also a tiny bit of a gluey flavor but it's ok.
This is a big authentic tequila with lots of bold agave present on the nose and palate, and a great pepper finish. I think I lean a bit more to the older 1079 crop, but I can't fault the newer 1580.
Tequila ArteNOM, from Las Joyas del Agave, is unique in that it draws tequila from several different distilleries, acting like a curator and showing off the “house style” of different distilleries.
Chlorine smell (defect), nothing related to the flavor Flavor wise is good not great
