Aroma : Watermelon and bananas with cinnamon, oak, cloves and vanilla. Taste : Peppery heat with cloves and cinnamon accompany the same fruity notes you get on the nose alongside creamy, sweet cooked agave. The texture is full and oily just like the Blanco. Finish : Long and crisp with good balance between sweet and spicy flavors.

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.
