A nice sipper, manageable heat, good barrel notes, and mouth feel. Good value for being just shy of 9yr xa. This is definitely a bourbon drinkers xa. The finish was a little short but pleasing.
the tequila was good enough to get and 80 from me, but the advertising, promotion, and social media is horrible. They keep showing people slamming it down in shot glasses to 'evaluate and compare it to other brands.. which is a joke
Nice nose of red fruits, milk chocolate, and brown sugar. A little thin for a XA in terms of viscosity. Oak is balanced pretty well on the palette with cinnamon, berries, dark chocolate, and peaches. Finishes noticeably hot. A nice, if not spectacular, XA. Price is a bit high for this level of execution, and knocked off a couple points correspondingly.
An agave heavy nose that tilts a bit toward acetate. Traditional vibes. Raw agave, acetate, alcohol, green paper. Finishes to mint. Nice mouth feel. Medium hot. Medium long. Pretty solid overall.
Some 1,700 miles from those Jalisco farms, in the heart of whiskey country, several Nashville entrepreneurs are betting big on the growing demand for craft tequila in the U.S. as the liquor sheds its spring break reputation.
