The brain child of a former Bacardi exec and realized by Ana Maria Romero at NOM 1499, home to 3 Amigos, the new Corrido and several others, this is happily not anything like the Bacardi corporate abortion that is current Cazadores. It's kind of an odd package, all pink and gold, a conejo logo with a heavy, stubby bottle with an awkward, all glass stopper. The tequila inside however rises above all that and is inviting to drink. I'll add more in a bit.

Nose: Impressive ripe, round, rich agave start. A pronounced mineral element. Lime zest and orange blossoms.There’s a little background spice, light pepper and vanilla going on. A great balance of contrasting aromas. Flavors: Slow cooked caramelized sweet agave, and an umami note tempt you to chew this as you sip it. Creeping white pepper keeps the rich agave sweetness in check. Buttery. Nice mouth feel. Finish: This has a full, rich, lengthy finish: fading pepper, spice, and anise.

Floral, fruit, black pepper, agave and slight yeast aromas. Flavor and finish are both really nice. Lots of sweet agave in both the flavor and finish. This is a well-crafted tequila.

Aromas of sweet cooked agave, flowers, tropical fruit, yeast, and (white?) pepper. Very rounded and balanced in the mouth with a slightly effervescent finish. Very pleasant, and I enjoy the more subtle profile.
