Artificially flavored. Synthetic cream soda / Creamsicle like aroma and flavor that just doesn't go well. Not easy to tell it's tequila.

Jan 5, 2023 I tried this in a blind a few weeks ago but wanted to revisit b4 doing a review. So I finished my sample today... Nose First time I drank this, I got vanilla and caramel on the nose. Today = Alcohol forward with minerality. Its hard to smell agave because the alcohol smell is so strong. Palate The first time I got vanilla and some unnatural sweetness, but not agave. Today i didn't get much flavor at all.  There's a trace of agave but otherwise really nothing. Finish falls flat and leaves a bitter after taste Overall This wasn't great, and it also wasn't as horrible as I thought it was going to be. Still, not a good tequila. Baffles my brain what they did to make this so unpleasant when they used a traditional process = stone ovens and tahona crush. I assume the agave weren't fully matured, they didn't cut off all the bitter parts of the piña,  and there's additives. Also, what's the quality of the water they used? ... Rating 60 pts
