Copper colored. Nose: First whiff brought a lot of oak and bourbon notes, striking fear that these aromas were going to be overbearing for me. But they quickly mellowed, bringing waves of barrel spice, fruity and floral scents, vanilla, butterscotch and counterpoint earthiness. Flavor: Immediate pepper in your face. But it backs off, allowing buttery caramel, almond and butterscotch room to strut their stuff. Quite a lot of fruitiness present, but I’m having difficulty identifying individual fruits in that makeup - maybe dark cherry? Punchy cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. Finish: A slightly nagging bitter and hot taste in the finish.

Aroma: First pass before swirling: Citrus rind, light white pepper, grilled pineapple and some grassy herbal notes. Second pass, after a chance to breathe, light mineral notes emerged, agave and lemon. Flavor: Some weight to the body. Agave? with brown sugar undertones. A hot pepper note, a trace of licorice and slight bitterness. There is an undercurrent of something in the aftertaste that I can’t quite pin down. Not natural. Finish: Medium heat, sweet, licorice and fruity. Previous to tasting this, I did not know that a blanco (or an unaged tequila) could qualify as a cristalino. But there is a CRT Circular, dated 17 de noviembre 2016, that addresses “Tequilas Madurados Cristalinos.”

Not sure why this needs to exist, it is no bueno for me. Tasted at El Buho.

It is an innovation in Tequila, it contains the strength of a silver tequila but it leaves you with the sensation of cooked agave and leaves you the desire to repeat another drink.

Tasting this reminded me of putting a 9 volt battery on my tongue to see if it still works. I can’t understand how anyone would launch a liquid this bad.
