Aroma : Grassy and flowery notes that remind me of Calle 23 Criollo. This is against a backdrop of sweet cooked agave and peppercorns. Taste : Agave, butter and meaty salami notes give this a level of funk that differs from the traditional cheesy, grassy kind you might find in a bottle of Cascahuín Tahona Blanco, or other tequilas that have rested a while after fermentation. The texture is full, creamy, and oily. Finish : Long, with a little more spice from black pepper and baking spices. I love bottles like this one that give you a unique flavor profile while still retaining the qualities of an old school traditionally made tequila. This is a treat.

Initial impression: The aroma is lacking for me, but it may be due to my cold and dry home. I'll have to reevaluate in the spring/summer. The flavor is interesting, quite soft, and but is mainly from the whiskey barrels. Finish is satisfactory. I was hesitant about this product due to the 3x distillation, but had heard good things and wanted to try for myself. The glass stopper is different. It will take some getting used to since it has a tight fitting rubber(?) gasket. I scraped the inside of the neck as I pulled the stopper out. Hopefully, I don't scratch or crack the glass, but that would be my fault, not the bottle design.

The flavor is interesting, quite soft, and there is a note that I haven't quite placed, but it is very pleasing. Finish is satisfactory.

Nose: A delicate combination of warm spices with a touch of vanilla. Given a few minutes to open up, brings out guava, banana and cantaloupe aromas. A citrusy floral thread wends its way through the aromas. Flavor: The initial pepper, clove and cinnamon heat, mellows to share the show with buttery, silky almond cream and vanilla custard. Plenty of agave and fruit playing strong supporting roles. Oak influence is merely a bit player on this stage. Finishes leaving an airy, delicate and elegantly balanced impression.

Nose of tropical fruit, cantaloupe, butter, clove, cinnamon, vanilla and pepper. Oily mouthfeel with nicely balanced sweetness. Very pleasant.
