Nose: Lemon/lime soda, green banana, ripe pear, artichoke hearts, vanilla and spiciness. Agave forward with the scent of steamy crushed gravel after a rain shower on a hot day. Flavors: Flavors are less complex than the aromas. Cinnamon, robust pepper heat and sweetness. A little thin in the mouth, yet it has a certain roundness and pleasing agave presence. A hint of salinity. It finishes with slow burn pepper heat and a dash of fennel seed.

Bottle 92, Lote 1 Nose: Ripe berries, melon and a suggestion of hard cider. Cinnamon, and an aromatic blend of allspice, powdered ginger and nutmeg. Background aromas of butterscotch, vanilla and caramel. This is all held together with an oak presence that does not overwhelm the agave. Flavors: Vibrant and vivacious profile. Caramel with assertive pepper and cinnamon. Yet sits nicely on the palate with silky fruit notes of cantaloupe drizzled with honey. Finish: There is butterscotch retrohale, with pepper and light salinity. This loses some points on price point. It is nearly double the price of the repo. But a fine tequila, none the less.

Nose: Pleasing oak, barrel spice and orange blossom aromas. Agave, laced with nutmeg, vanilla, pepper and cinnamon. A slight cedar note. Flavor: Nice oily mouth feel with zingy cinnamon, fruit and sweet nuttiness. A vivacious profile that has creeping pepper heat with juxtaposing creamy toffee. The cedar note continues on the palate.

Nose: Up front, robust ripe agave. This is made with a high pressure autoclave. But the aroma reminds me more of low pressure and slow cooked high Brix agaves. There is light spice, cinnamon, and soft vanilla notes. Subtle cooked artichoke and green banana scents. A slight sulfur note. Flavor: The agave flavors parallel the aromas. There is a warming pepper and cinnamon presence that plays well with the vanilla cream and almond paste suggestions. A cooked vegetal touch in the mix. Great balance and mouth feel. Finish: It does not evolve a whole lot on the finish, a tiny bit of smokiness and anise show up. It is a very pleasant sipper that I could envision drinking for an entire evening.

Cooked agave, fruit, and a tiny bit of vanilla in the aroma. More cooked agave in the flavor. Has a nice natural mouth feel. Finish is short. This is not a super complex tequila, but it is quite good.

Vegetal notes open up to cake batter. Very alcohol aroma/taste for a 38% abv. Mildly sweet with a short finish. Simple.

Pretty much as close to perfect as I’ve had, it’s 100% agave forward, soft, perfect mouthfeel. Really exceptional!!!
