Dark coppery hue. Nose: Recently hewn oak. Very fruit forward. Fresh berries, melon and cherry. Dried “fruitcake” favorites: citron, cherries, apricots, figs, raisins and English walnuts. Cinnamon, cloves and vanilla. Flavor: Black pepper, leather and vanilla. Kicky spice. A touch of almond on the exit. A straight forward Añejo. Not a lengthy finish nor a super complex tequila - but solid nonetheless.

Nose: Green agave and a round ripe agave notes. A gentle spritz of minerals. Floral with a warm sweet musky scent - reminds me of Easter egg jelly bean candies. This aroma doesn’t read higher proof. Flavor: Pepper heat and a trace bitter note. Floral, fruity and some nutty nuances. Natural sweetness and a viscosity that coats the tongue nicely. A pleasant sip - but no wow factor for me.

NOM1588 - Tequilas El Mexicano Hecho en Arandas Jalisco I smell some cooked agave and some dusty dry oak. There’s some dried orange citrus and white pepper. It’s a light nose but clean. I taste sweet buttery cooked agave, spicy red pepper flakes and barrel influence from the American white oak. The French oak influence comes on the finish. It’s sweet and spicy but not overwhelming. There’s a medium finish with a lingering spiciness. This is a well made Reposado that has a lot of character without being overwhelming. Salud!
