Caramel, earth, oak, leather, whisky, butterscotch, spice, and a touch of orange bitters. Pricey.

Caramel, oak, leather, butterscotch, and that common earthy oaky orange funk that underlies all the Codigo for me—but more muted here.

Oak, orange peel, vanilla, earth, slight bitterness, and a touch of funk.

Floral, orange peel bitterness, agave, a little funk, and lingering spice.

Alcohol, mint, pepper, agave, funk and bitterness greet you. It mellows as you go, but not the best start.

The nose has that agave, and the funk from the blanco is mellowed out significantly. A little bit of floral notes and some fruit, some black pepper. Not a lot going on. On the palate, the agave is there for sure, but that funk I noticed in the blanco still is too. It’s milder but still there. The ethanol punch isn’t there, and that bitter chemical taste is gone. If you hold it in for a bit, there’s a nice bite of orange peel, which is very nice. Very herbal finish. I’ve caught herbal notes before, but this is distinctly rosemary and oregano on the finish, VERY interesting. All in all, this is significantly better than the blanco. The mild aging put in way more work than I expected. It’s still overpriced imo, there’s way better you can get at that price range, but it’s really not bad. They sell this at Target in California and it’s significantly better than most of what they have there. Still, while it is overpriced, it’s good enough that I’d be interested in trying the 1616 version.
