Sad we can’t get this anymore. They need to make an anniversary addition. From the same distillery as Ocho I believe. Vibrant, cooked agave, smooth, great finish.
Roast agave abounds on the nose and continues from first sip to finish. It has some bitterness at the end which for me holds this back as I prefer a more neutral or slight natural sweetness, especially with as much roast agave as this has on the nose and in great amounts in the mouth. Repeated nosing from a glencairn reveal some floral notes which remind me of carnations. It is the first day of Spring after all. 65th birthday review.
Amazingly clean and complex, this tequila is a treasure.
Aroma is relatively light/faint. Distinct vegetal/grassy notes with a slight background sweetness. Noticeable aromas of raw agave - fresh/clean versus sweet/toasted. "Old-school" blanco flavor with noticeable agave and clay/dirt alongside. Overall, very mild in all flavors. Nice, spicy finish is moderate in length.
Aroma: Very light and mellow. There is definite agave but there's also a slight sweet note. At first it was more towards vanilla but after time I start getting cinnamon. Flavor: This reminds me of a very traditional blanco. It's earthy with strong raw agave notes and a bit if clay. My only criticism is that's it's very light and almost feels a little watered down.
