Yet again I’m faced with a cristalino devoid of any semblance of agave! Sharp alcohols drive the bus the entire time, it’s really not pleasant.

Really big pepper on the nose, doesn’t have tons of roasted agave that pops out but it’s definitely there. Citrus and subtle sweetness that struggles to get past mid palette but once it does it has a beautiful, long finish.

Served in a Glencairn glass. Nose is bright and punchy - wet grass, citrus, agave. Medium body, great legs on the glass. Hits with pepper and some leather, then a clean finish with some complexity, lingers on the tongue.

Just a tinge of straw to the color. Nose: Dark ripe fruit, dried pitted fruit, creamy vanilla and piquant mineral notes. A faint hint of tobacco. Flavors come on much more forcefully than the nosing. Popping baking spices greet snickerdoodle cookie dough flavors. There’s vanilla, almond paste and light nuttiness going on. As a counterpoint to the sweetness, there is numbing black and crushed red pepper heat. Finish: Pleasing lengthy, balanced finish. Sweet - but not dessert type sweet. Nice pinging pepper lingers.

Aromas of caramel, vanilla and dried fruit. The aroma has a barrel warmth to it, not flat or one note. Similar light touch flavors and I can still detect some barrel tannins in the mouth- rare for a cristalino! I like that the color is slightly golden so it won’t be visually confused with a blanco. This is an elegant example of the expression.

This is a cristalino that’s actually not bad. I am surprised. It hasn’t been overly filtered, so you still get some barrel notes. Vanilla, chocolate, slight cake batter. Some agave in the flavor. Has a medium thick mouth feel. Some tannins on the finish. Surprisingly good. There is still some color left to this, which is evidence that it hasn’t been overly filtered like most cristalinos.
