Smells like angel food cake, I’m getting some agave but mostly vanilla and caramelized sugar. Taste isn’t a huge departure from the smell, this is definitely on the sweet side of things. I would say the closest comparison I could make is biscotti, that almond is really coming through. Overall this is kinda what I expect from contract brands, it’s mass appeal should help it find its market share.

Aroma is actually not bad, it’s the flavor profile and finish that’s really not good Sweet, sweet and does not resemble tequilla …. Hyped up marketing machine

Vanilla frosting all day long. I even opened a red velvet cupcaje I had and it tasted exactly the same, it was amazingly similar I even surprised myself with how accurate the comparison was. If you like that artificial flavor profile this is your jam, it’s just not mine.
