The nose is slightly musty / wet cement The agave is there and then it turns hot. It has a spicy & vegetal finish. This could do well in an agave forward cocktail based on its strength of flavors. I’m sampling a 50ml bottle.

Nose: Light Agave and some baking spices. Sweetness from cooked agave and French oak. Highland Fruity / Floral Notes Taste: Baking Spices right up front then some cooked agave and French Oak sweetness. The alcohol provides a pleasant tingle with a nice pepper finish. This is a nice Reposado that’s a good balance of spice and sweetness with a nice finish.

I had to pour this out after a couple of small sips. I honestly thought the Adictivo was better overall.

A slight funk on the nose blows off after a few minutes. The mid palate has all of the agave characteristics. Also some chocolate notes. The finish is a bit hot. And left me disappointed. It’s called the Bad Stuff, so they may have set the bar low. It’s very drinkable, but in this tasting, I was a bit surprised it couldn’t score higher. I will retaste again.

Oddly the flavor doesn't match the nose... not much agave presence, and bland AF. Strange and suspicious sweetness lingering... Not worth the 180-200+ retail price... hard pass on this more than "bad stuff". Artificial tasting.
