This definitely heightens the flavor profile of Pasote blonco from the new nom, as it should. It drinks easy for a high proof. Starts with cooked agave, citrus and light minerality. Then goes into a huge herbal or sesame style funkiness that lingers on the tongue for a medium finish

Oh wow…. Lots of minerality and water source on the nose with cooked agave slight citrus … some heat on the palate but agave sweetness and some fruitiness long finish, minerality disappears and leaves that citrus peel tast on the tongue… I’m sure this will be different when it opens up

A little disappointed compared to other still Strengths coming out lately. I wanted to like this Pasote so much. Not bad, just not great. Medium heat, white pepper and citrus. The agave did not shine for me in this tequila.

NOM 1579 updating 4.7.2024 Having with Alan at Luis Torres hacienda 4/7/24 This tequila from 1579 is amazing and perfectly balanced. It is now my favorite xa Smell = tropical fruit, barrel spices and sweet cooked agave, brown sugar, cinnamon Palate = sweet agave, sweet potatoes, barrel spices Finish = medium  heat 93 pts I've had this in the past when it was first introduced ? 2016? but I hadn't rated it. revisiting with a small sample cooked agave, hints of apple, pears, some barrel notes, not a lot of oak, which I like, a little heat on the end. well balanced
