Thinner letter metal label. Warm cooked agave, cinnamon, mocha, jalapeno, orange zest, roasted nuts, ginger... I need more of these older bastards!

Thinner letter metal label. Cooked agave, minty butter, bubble yum, mango, citrus, white pepper... tasty AF.

Aroma: Cooked agave and ethanol, vanilla. A bit of oak, and a tiny bit of mint. Caramel, and clear whiskey notes. Palate: Cooked agave, barrel spice. Ethanol, but not too harsh. Definitely some caramel coming through. Earthy. Verdict: Solid budget anejo. For $29.99 at our local Trader Joe’s, this is a steal. It’s not particularly complex, won’t be a daily sipper by any means, but I can see this making a very solid Tommy’s margarita. Maybe my new well anejo if the margarita I make with it goes well.
