Vanilla and butterscotch on the nose. Nice mid palate. The finish is a bit harsh. But it makes a really great Margarita!
a light sweet reposado, with aromas of baking spice and ice tea notes, along with light caramel and vanilla, creamy and earthy. Sweetness and creamy taste, with some alcohol and honey.
Definitely not your everyday blanco but scores in the 50s are misleading at best, it's better than that. Older bottle from the days of WA State liquor sales, so pre 2012. Viscous with some bitterness initially, this has a malo lactic back end that reminds me of some 1079 product like the ArteNOM Blanco or 1921 Blanco. Agave is present and as the experience progresses the bitterness fades to some neutral sweetness, meaning not coating or clinging to the tongue and mouth. I like the finish here which is quite lengthy.
Some initial bitterness on the finish holds this down a bit. Bottle is at least 10 years old and from a trip to Vegas (Area 51 anyone?). Bottle identifies as 101008/R106 This is a spicy, wooded product and the composite cork did a great job of sealing as this tastes as new. Roast agave, cardamom and some earthy notes fade to a lip and tongue buzz from alcohol. After a couple of minutes the finish fades from the bitter to some lingering natural sweetness.
The best I think of the Alien expressions. Thanks Kelly Cash.
Medium body. Light amber color. A subtle aroma of vanilla and wood with a hint of agave. A somewhat bitter flavor of citrus, vanilla, oak and spice (nutmeg).

When we heard that the brand was producing a new extra añejo, we were anxious to get our hands on it.
