The lightest straw color. Sweet nose, light baking spices and cooked agave with very subtle caramel notes. The booze makes itself present although not a burner. Buttery, round mouth feel. A faint touch of butterscotch. Ever so minor touch of smoke I actually feel like I was searching for it rather than it being a true representation. A little spice at the end. - heat runs through an excellent finish and let’s you know it’s got presence.

The nose greets you prior to each sip and then the pleasant flavors reward your decision to partake this spirit. The finish is a flavorful mix of sweet and savory peppers. This is a unique blanco that’s rested in brady barrels that previously contained an Oaxacan mezcal. What an interesting tequila. The nose is a nice mixture of light floral sweetness and some warm earthy notes like hay and minerals with a hint of morning campfire smoke. It’s complex. I first get sweet cooked agave and then some warm baking spices immediately follow. There’s a pleasant warming tingle from the 43% abv that lingers into the finish. This product begs you to take sip after sip.

The latest ArteNOM, AN 1123 Blanco Historico is a blanco made from lower brix (24) agave from the Valle and then finished for 3 to 4 weeks in brandy barrels that had previously held Oaxacan mezcal. I remember I read it was Don Amado who had used the barrels prior. Big fragrant nose from the resting of this now straw colored Cascahuin made distillate in the barrels. A bit of sour cider notes with caramelized agave carried by 43% ABV juice turns into an very aggresive spiciness on intake, slamming the tongue with sharp flavors from the ethanol, the resting, the base blanco itself. Man, I want to taste this at still/barrel proof if this what 43% tastes like. Finish is quite long at the center of the tongue, minutes long really. A worthy addition
