On the nose, I get butter, butterscotch, vanilla and cooked agave. A medley of those immediately, followed by cooked agave. A touch of wet grass on the back end, almost like the smell of outside after a light rain. On the palate, I definitely get the agave and spicy white pepper. Nice, balanced sweetness. Definitely some minerality. The butter note comes through, but not as much as the nose would suggest. Medium body, oily and almost silky. A touch of anise coming up on the finish for me. Definitely a very interesting tequila, highly enjoyable and unique.
