Aroma/Taste: I detect cherry and a subtle earthy scent, followed by hints of citrus, including lime and grapefruit, alongside the sweetness of yellow corn and a touch of cola. As it opens, the aroma evolves into notes of vanilla bean and ripe banana, a delightful sweetness. Finish: The finish is short yet satisfying, offering a dry sensation with hints of almond, herbal undertones reminiscent of asparagus, a gentle kick of white pepper spice, and a subtle essence of black tea. It leaves a pleasant sensation as it goes down. Overall: This reposado is a reliable choice, boasting a straightforward character. The kiss of oak barrel aging lends a softness to the spice, resulting in a highly approachable and drinkable experience. While "smooth" may be a contentious term in the additive-free realm, this tequila undeniably offers a velvety softness that makes it a pleasure to savor.

Plain. Vegetal on the nose and mouth Celery, Pine nuts, crisp. This is a solid repo to keep on deck. Nothing special, middle of the road

Notes from a blind tasting: Aroma: Pleasantly floral, with a vegetal agave minerality, hints of vanilla and oak, though quite faint. On revisits, began to pick up orange blossom aromas reminiscent of Japanese sake. Flavor: Sweet agave notes, with some notes of cucumber. Herbal and earthy as well, with a slight funk that tastes good. Finish: A very pleasant finish, with lingering vegetal and floral notes coupled with black pepper.
