March 2013 bottling. 38% ABV 1 liter bottle $300 pesos Nose: That old school aroma. Round sweet agave. Caramel, faint vanilla and mellow baking spices. A touch of clay. A hint of celery. Flavor: Some oils. Sweet with a dash of bitters. The baking spice has taken on a more dominant role. Enough pepper to balance out the uber sweetness. Some mellow caramel apple notes. Reminds me of other older vintage tequilas. Finish: A short jackrabbit finish. Miravalle picked up a couple of extra points on value - nonetheless a simple, pleasant sip.
Pretty good, agave still present regardless of oak exposure, front palette is all agave and the back end is reminiscent of a nice bourbon. Something to be said about their production choices, every step of the way has left the agave alone and allowed the flavour to endure.
