Nose has agave, some barrel notes, light nose. unique palate, soft, very interesting flavor, tough to describe. Not bad, not great. High price

Some green and floral aromas with sweeter flavors. Only had a small sample but it was floral, sweet, and very soft. I am a big fan of El Tequileño but this one didn’t strike as good of a balance between flavor and price; I’ll stick to their other offerings.
