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.

Notes on the nose were overwhelming dominated by ethanol. The profile was ok with hints of oak, pepper, but very little cooked agave present. The issue was the finish was defined by an ethanol burn. Even after airing it out a while not much changed. It was not terrible however at $170 I can’t justify recommending this. The majority of the influencers promoting this spend more time talking about it being women owned etc etc than the actual juice. But I’m the end I always suggest people make up their own minds. I may revisit and give it another try in a few weeks.

Flavor: Cherry and prune, cooked agave, caramel, baking spice, wood notes. Finish: Medium (wish it was longer because I really like this). A couple points off for finish and price
