Very good, light golden in color, this is Tahona, Copper Pot Still and quite well done. Roast agave with toasted oak notes of vanilla, caramel and a bit of aromatic wood. A cigar humidor in effect. Some oak bitterness initially but this fades to a semi sweet finish. Quite a bit of depth to the flavor as I would expect from production methods alone. Did I mention the bottles weighs a lot!! 4 lbs 7 oz is very heavy and costly to ship. I'll be interested in the XA when it's ready. #900 !!

Bright and floral nose, a post-rain earthiness vibe with a touch of citrus. Medium body, nice legs on the glass. Immediately get cooked agave with a touch of banana, moving quickly to pepper and a satisfying heat on the roof of the mouth. Relatively brief finish, but there is complexity hanging around much longer. A commendable pour.

Nose: I started with a Glencairn Sherry Nosing Copita, quickly switching to my trusty Jarrito from Romeo Hristov. This repo does not have terribly vibrant aromas. It presents in more of a round and mellow style. There is chocolate, vanilla and white chocolate. As it opens a bit, I detect some earthiness or mineral notes, a vague whiff of agave, a pinch of spice and some dried fruit. Nothing standout here for me, although pleasant enough. Flavors: The initial sip delivers an unexpected pop of pepper, cinnamon, clove and allspice. Creamy in the mouth, holding the vanilla and chocolate nuances I got on the nosing. I’m trying to dig out some agave here, which I thought the tahona would showcase, but it’s elusive to me. I had waited a very long time to try this expression from San Matias, and was a tiny bit disappointed. It is well crafted and will fit the bill for many - maybe a dessert accompaniment. Just not my cup of tequila...

White chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla notes with a sweet vanilla finish. A nice, rich repo. I prefer a lighter touch on barrel flavors, with more agave for a repo, but I’m sure many will enjoy it.

This has a chocolate aroma and flavor. Agave, butter, and vanilla aroma also. Thick mouth feel and a pleasing finish. It lost 1 point on value, because it’s a bit expensive here in Mexico.
