Some how I feel this tequila has something not natural. It is sweet but a wierd sweet. maybe try it again.
On the nose, this is interesting. There’s clear agave, but I’m not sure if I’m smelling cooked or raw. Definitely citrus notes, and something I can only describe as tobacco, which is a very weird aroma from a tequila in my experience. On the palate, heavy agave flavor and more fruit, reminiscent of banana. The “tobacco” flavor is there, very subtle, and subsequent sips give me something creamy/butterscotchy. Over ice, this transforms into a decent sipper. The sweetness comes out and the flavors combine in a very synergistic way. Very interesting and enjoyable. My verdict: As I suspected, the blanco really does stand-alone a lot better than the añejo, but Im curious about the reposado. All in all, Definitely worth experiencing, but at the price point, I’ll definitely pass it up since it’s only $5 away from ElVelo and $9 away from Tapatio, both of which come in 1L bottles, and both of which are more enjoyable for me personally. Still, this is a very competent tequila, and I’d have no problem recommending it, and one of the beauty’s about our individual differences is that this could be your absolute favorite tequila and you wouldn’t be wrong.
Nose: some cooked agave, sweetness of ripe fruit, green banana, black pepper, and alcohol Flavor: cooked agave, black pepper, light saltiness, creamy mouth feel, and mint Finish: slight bitterness, and peppery, medium in length
