This rating is for the Circulo Joven expression that has replaced the Reposado expression, which is no longer in their lineup. The Joven is their blanco with 6 year old XA added. Ricardo Basulto presenting. Nose: Agave forward. The barrel makes itself known with notes of caramel, cinnamon and vanilla. A little mushroom compost aroma going on. Flavors: A bit thin. Coffee, toffee, kicky white pepper and creamy sweet agave in harmony. Finish holds the white pepper heat forever - but the velvety caramelized agave makes it work. Loses points on value, for me. You are paying for a pretty bottle.

Nose: Cinnamon, light pepper, a touch of vanilla. Sweet, nearly caramelized agave aromas. Light potting soil note. Flavor: Very oily and silky. More pepper presence than the aroma belies. Very agave forward. At 35% ABV, a tiny bit soft. Finish still holds some nice spicy elements. It’s solid, but holds no “wow” factors for me.

Courtesy of Senior Rick. Not the best effort from NOM 1535, this is fairly bitter with not much of a finish.
