I saw this on a restaurant menu. I was curious to try it as I like their more traditional offerings. Aroma is definitely citrus. I get orange and lemon, but that masks any agave. Interesting flavor of orange, lemon, black pepper spiciness and a hint of basil. This could enhance a special cocktail, similar to a flavored vodka. Medium finish. Not sure the normal price as it's in a bar, but a comparison is the blanco shot is $1.25 less.

3rd night: The initial aroma is relatively soft and pleasant, characterized by oaky whiskey tones intermingled with notes of cooked agave, light minerality, honey, and subtly scathing ethyl. An inviting essence of delicious cherry adds to the anticipation. Upon tasting, the palate is immediately enveloped by prominent oak and whiskey flavors, a tolerable peppery sting on the throat accompanied by nuances of creamy chocolate, molasses, honey, brine and a vegetal pepperiness reminiscent of green pepper. The presence of cherry adds a delightful touch, contributing to the overall richness. As the taste tapers into the finish, any anticipation of lingering sweetness I had fades quickly, giving way to a pronounced brininess that enters and lingers on the palate. Barrel spice, minute minerality and oak notes stay present from the start, offering a lack luster conclusion.

Day 3: I pick up the aroma of yeast, raspberry and agave in that order. There is a soft nutty note that makes me think of cashew and brine with; a bit of stone when resting after twirling. The taste is crisp,citrusy, tropical fruit tangy and sweet with pepper on the tongue and chest. The dry down is anything but short for me with agave lingering long.

The aroma is buttery with caramel and agave. Alcohol and brine emanates as well with earthy peppery watery notes. The taste is agave forward with caramel, brine, honey,pepper. A pleasant reposado and worth the price.
