I thought on an initial sniff that this might be thin and hot as it has some strong alcohol on the nose but after a minute or two in the Glencairn this has a nice roast yam back to it. A bit of cinnamon shows and some barrel spice of caramel and oak as well. Alcohol is there on the tongue but works to carry the spice. A nice finish that features a bit of agave pepper rounds this out.

Still some of these out there. Nose is agave and roast green pepper. First sip is sweet roast agave with fennel and pepper. Nice viscosity this finishes with some mid tongue bite from the ethanol and a bit of sour fermentation notes.

I’d use this tequila for mixed drinks that include lime! It has the fresh agave smell and taste but it isn’t smooth enough to be a sipping tequila for me. ¡Salud!

A tad too tilted towards the caramel and butterscotch the barrel provides but a decent sipper. Try it for curiosity sake but sake space in your wall, it can’t keep up with the good Anejo’s out there.

Nice balance of used American oak and agave, this is sneaky smooth. Perfect gateway drug for new tequila converts, absolutely no bite to scare them off!

Great aroma but the flavour disappoints, falls flat after a couple seconds on the tongue. I remember really liking this tequila years ago, I will definitely revisit with a fresh bottle and maybe catch some of that magic.
