I actually really like this tequila. The wine barrel influence is light but real. Overall it’s a pleasant sipper.

Tried a couple single barrels and they were better than the blended batch I had a while ago from the last distillery. One was floral with tannin nose, follower with some vegetal and spicy jalapeño, slight bitter tannin. The other was greener on the nose with a softer (less spicy) palate and sweeter finish I liked better. I’d give the first an 80 and the second an 84.
