Possesses a light, clean aroma of agave and citrus. The flavor profile includes agave, citrus, black pepper and a hint of minerals. Nice long finish at an exceptional price point.

Refined, nostalgic, and beautiful. You can taste the attention to detail and commitment to process. No shortcuts, no additives, no bs. This is a lightly peppered, cooked agave forward, slight citrus gentle giant of a tequila. I don’t need t fly to Tequila when I can get there with this bottle. Extraordinary!

Lote from 2020 (before the move to all copper pot still.) Nose: Softly spiced. Hints of pear, citrus, green agave, sulfur and lime. Kissed with a floral note. Flavor: Round spices. Vanilla, pineapple and cinnamon. A touch of saltiness. Slow, rolling, warming pepper spreads across the palate. Silky texture. A straight forward easy sipper. Lalo should appeal to a wide spectrum of tastes.

Strong agave forward, subtle sweetness with a mild peppery finish. Definitely a top blanco. A must for your bar.

Aroma doesn't fight fot your attention but you can discern agave for sure witg light lime, cinnamon, and sugars. Flavor is a big bite of cooked agave uo front followed by peppery, minty, citrus with a touch of vanilla cake frosting. Would stand up well as a mixer even though I'd only ever drink it neat myself.
