In the glass it’s crystal clear with slow legs. On the nose there’s agave, licorice, and cinnamon prevalent. The palate is agave, cinnamon, licorice, and a hint of tropical fruit (mango?) and citrus. It’s got a long warm finish of pepper and cinnamon spice. Note: This bottle has been open for a couple of days and there is considerably less cinnamon present than when first opened. I’ve had the high proof blanco and the reposado (both excellent) and don’t recall the cinnamon notes this one has. Overall tasty but more cinnamon than I prefer, which leads me to believe this bottling, shipping, and/or storage was somewhat unique as others don’t seem to pick this up as predominantly.

Ethanol on the nose right away with cooked agave coming in with oak at the end. Beautiful tears and viscosity line on the glass. This bottle has been open a month or so at this time and it has really benefited it....nice agave with ethanol burn, hint of baking spices, with a pleasant burn on a medium finish.

From Old Town. There have been several different barrels released and this one is at 44% ABV. Agave custard, with a healthy dose of baking spice and some ethanol. Never obtrusive, the alcohol, agave and barrel elements are well balanced and harmonize forming a very pleasing whole.

Aroma : Cooked agave with herbal, vegetal notes and some earth and mineral tones. Flavor : Tons of creamy, sweet cooked agave with butter, vanilla, and nutty undertones. There is also some pepper, cinnamon, and baking spices. This is the right amount of spice and sweetness, with a full-flavored oily mouthfeel. Finish : Long lasting with a more mineral quality than the initial taste, slightly bitter.
