Detected traces of solvent. Nose is flat and no traces of agave. Finish is unpleasant on the palate.

This is not your typical blanco. It has aromas and flavors that are unique to itself (leather, tobacco, mint, green apple, vanilla cake batter) and it has a very bold smell and taste. This rather non-traditional tequila profile doesn't put this blanco on my favorites list, but I'm sure there are people out there who will adore it.

Let this baby open up for about 30 minutes and you'll experience an absolutely beautiful set of aromas, with butter, baked caramelized agave, and deep rich vanilla, all inviting you to dive right in. The flavor definitely delivers on that promise. Just the right amount of sweetness, but still retaining its agave roots. The finish is nice, long and comfortable. This is a solid XA.

Visual is Gold/Amber Aromas of baked agave, orange bitters, vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch and banana. After five minutes, I also found a touch of smoke and fresh roasted almonds. As this tequila continues to open in the glass, more flavors continue to develop. The suggested retail is $107.00 USD. The package and the juice within is a fantastic value for an XA.

This bright, clean Blanco was a great surprise to my palate. I found licorice, grapefruit, lemon peel, crisp green apple, mint. Also after 5 minutes, violets and tropical notes. The flavor starts smooth and finishes with warm backed agave and white pepper. The finish lasts well over 30 seconds. I highly recommend this tequila.
