Nose: cooked agave / earth/ vegetal / slight lactic funk (very slight)/ slight fruitiness/ orange / lime / hint of lavender/ tiny bit of smoke Taste: sweet agave / vanilla/ pepper/ earth/ mineral/ banana/ melon / lemongrass / tea / spearmint/ cream soda Finish: superb clean bright finish/ watery mouthfeel/ it seems like even more sweetness and flavors come out very late in the taste. There’s a great mint flavor that wraps everything up. This vintage blanco disappoints on the nose, but it is a blanco…so when the stellar taste notes and finish step in, it’s a fantastic and delicious tequila.

Tasted blind as part of Fuerte Friday. The nose is beautiful. I get sweet agave, floral notes, apple, cinnamon. The taste is a cinnamon bomb but also has plenty of cooked agave. I get apple, chocolate and butter. This almost gives the impression of a barrel influence. This tequila has a nice clean finish with light viscosity. The ABV is low and I think a little higher ABV would help this tequila really shine.

Blind Tasting; Floral aroma oozes out the glass right after pouring. Upon smelling I get agave, vinegar, faint citrus floral, nuttiness, mustiness, pepperiness in nose but no distinct smell of ethyl. When sipping there is a sour grassiness that slips by quickly followed with, sweet peppermint, earthy nuttiness, distinct anise, and orange peel. One of the softest high proofs I’ve had and it’s very enjoyable. Finish lingers with earthy agave, lurking peppermint, faint cacao, anise and a tingly pepperiness that clings to the tongue.

Incredible balance. The sweetness + wood is so harmonious on this it’s extraordinary. Pricey, but a very memorable bottle.
