Cream soda, vegetal, candy nose with sweet cinnamon taste and bitter finish. Has light fingerprint of Cofradia products, but manipulated.

Lots of vanilla in the aroma here (a lot!!), but still retains that signature Cofradia green vegetal aroma. Flavor is super sweet, cinnamon, and vanilla. This flavor profile is designed for people who don’t like tequila.

Nose: Minty, cinnamon, vanilla cotton candy-like aroma. The typical NOM #1137 swamp aroma, but bathed in vanilla. A little sharpness to the nose, perhaps a mineral note. Flavor: An entrance of thick vanilla viscosity. Slightly bitter pepper notes hitting the sides of my tongue and back of the throat . Tastes of artificially flavored vanilla saltwater taffy. A dash of cinnamon. Finish: An odd acrid aftertaste to the sweetness, and lingering sulfur detract from the tasting experience. I’m hoping that the next iteration of 818 out of new NOM #1607 brings significant improvements.

Gingerbread, cookie dough, potatoes Very light. Usually I like tequilas that are rich, a little bigger mouthfeel and a smooth finish, but this one is crisp and a bit clearer. Doesn’t last too long, tiny warmth, grassy notes

Aroma: Sweet cream soda, vanilla, light on agave, but I get cream soda through and through. Very prominent. A touch of caramel. Makes me wonder if this isn't additive heavy, or if they rested it in barrel. It smells nice, but nothing tells me this is tequila. Palate: The sweet cream soda on the nose comes through front and center. Agave is notably missing. I get a little bit of baking spice, vanilla, a touch of ethanol on the back end. Honestly, this is really tasty, very palatable, but not tequila. Until this gets verified additive free, I'm definitely calling additives for this one. I get mild hints of cooked agave, but man, it's really missing here. They made an interesting sipping spirit, but a mediocre tequila. Verdict: Skip I would give this a much higher score if I was trying to judge it as something other than tequila. As far as I’m concerned, it’s mediocre as a tequila, the agave is notably missing, the cream soda is dominating in the nose and palate. That’s not a bad thing if you want a dessert spirit, but it is if you want a sipping blanco. Tastes engineered, not crafted. No judgment if you like it, it’s clearly made to be palatable and tasty, probably makes a very interesting cocktail, but this doesn’t hold a candle to anything in its price range. It’s missing that nasty diffuser taste, so that’s good, but I can’t recommend this in good faith. I’m not going to completely dunk on it like all the fake outrage reviewers are, but it’s definitely not a good tequila in my eyes.
