CTB045. On the nose, I got a saline type of aroma right off the bat and then a ton of cooked agave. A little bit of cinnamon, and a grassy note. On the palate, very abundant cooked agave. Some cinnamon, baking spices, a nice sweetness. Very drinkable, very tasty. This is overall very good, but it’s missing that “it” factor for me. I was hoping for a little more from this one given all the hype. I’ll give it some time though, it may grow on me. I was notoriously not a fan of Cascahuin but most of their expressions have grown on me. I’ll come back to it and update my review at a later time, after I’ve sat with it for a while. I’m the three tastings I’ve done, I’ve liked it more each time so maybe there’s more to it than I’m getting currently.
Baking spices are the stellar components on this tequila, with cinnamon, allspice, caramel and vanilla notes. Barrel spice can definitely be sensed through the finish. Reminded me of holidays season and feels more of an Añejo expression.
Has initial great cooked agave notes, that are later minimized by subtle small defects. Not a bad a tequila, but kept me wanting more of a wow factor. Basic profile, agave + pepper + citrus + floral
