This the new Lote 02/21 from this year. The agaves were sourced from Los Altos. And 7% extra añejo was added. Nose: The aromas begin with caramel and a slightly funky, sour note which gradually fades into the round vanilla aromas. Subtle baking spices, tame white pepper and lightly toasted nuts. Dried fruit: apricots and raisins. The caramel and vanilla morph into a butterscotch richness. With a little breathing time, thyme, tea and cut grass emerge. Flavor: An incredible oily, buttery texture coats your entire palate. There is salinity and an umami element. As a counterpoint, the tame white pepper of the nosing, takes on a near fiery presence. Assertive agave fruitiness. Spices punching through: cinnamon and cloves. Hazelnut and butterscotch rounding out the profile and bringing it all together. Cazcanes does not produce assembly line profiles - pretty unique tequilas.

Nose: Spicy entrance: cloves, cinnamon, green cardamom and cracked pepper. Green agave and sweet ripe agave aromas. Followed up with a floral/ berry note. Hints of guava and dark cherries. An earthy, mineral element in the aroma. Light citrus and baked pineapples. A touch of smokiness. Flavor: Ripe natural agave leads into spiciness and a buttery brown sugar note. The combination of jalapeño pepper, plus white and black pepper are borderline overpowering - as well as holding trace bitterness. There are vegetal and herbal undertones of artichoke and asparagus. A green banana note, a whisper of citrus. Not really oily in the mouth - yet it is appealing on the palate. A clean profile. Finishes with a suggestion of subtle vanilla. This high proof needs a lot of time to open up and show it’s pedigree.

Excellent taste and long warm finish - knocked a few points for value due to price pint. Good sipper!

Nose of vanilla, oak, citrus, cherry and oak. A touch of leather and butter. Nice round mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish to balance the agave sweetness. Very nice but a little more aged than I look for in a repo.

Very pleasing aroma of fruit, agave, vanilla and slight hay. Nicely balanced flavor, with cooked agave and vanilla. Finish has a nice subtle sweetness.

Knocked a few points off for the price point of almost $100 per 750ml. Very pleasant to sip and having tasted this several times recently, I was glad to obtain a bottle for myself. Caramel nose along with a bit of barrel funk/mustiness. Some sweetness on entry along with agave spice and alcohol. A somewhat short finish that fades to lingering sweetness.
