Nose: fine champagne or wine / fruity / vanilla: plum-grape/ green apple / pear / mint / cream soda Taste: agave sweet and apple - huge sweetness with fruitiness overflowing / vanilla/ black pepper/ mint/ maple and chocolate Finish: So many different flavors creating an orchestra of flavor that has sweet champagne and chocolate as the melody. Beautiful mouthfeel that lingers with that chocolate and mint harmony. Encore!!!! Summary: Wow. The sweetness and champagne chocolate notes won’t work for everyone’s palate, but if there was ever a dessert tequila, this is it.

A lot of sweet that falls in a hit of alcohol and then flat nothing.

Really pleasant heavy oak derived sweetness, picking up on the cherry wood used in the aging process. Very clean.

Not much on the nose. Flavor is sweet, no agave, and the finish is very short

Tried a sample. Nice barrel nose with pepper on finish. Easy palate but not a lot going on. Price needs to be less for this one.

Blind rating 2/6/2024 NOM 1499 Aroma: an initial butter/cream aroma as soon as my nose got near the glass followed by a bright floral aroma. There’s a powerful orange aroma with an undertone of cooked agave and honey. There’s also a subtle herbal aroma with a hint of clove. Flavor: a buttery citrus flavor at first followed by some cardamom. There’s a slight cooked agave sweetness on the mid palate which is rounded out with almost like a lavender flavor. Finish: very short with no burn or warming sensation. Texture is medium to thin. It’s very silky and soft.
