Hmmmm, a Cristalino that smells and tastes like tequila, what gives?!? This is an anomaly, really doesn’t profile like something that has been filtered. I still think Cristalinos should be avoided and are monkey shit, this one is delightful.

I liike this. Not sweet per se this has an agave sweetness layered onto the barrel elements which add their wood notes of tree fruit, spice, toasted oak to the overall profile.

Like 80% of the reposado rare for 1/3rd of the price, it scratches the same itch for wonderfully aged tequileño. Would recommend anytime and whiskey lovers seem to dig it.

Aroma : Agave, apples, baking spices, and light oak. There's a bit of grassy funk too. Taste : Mellow fruits and agave are paired with light black pepper and oak. Finish : Medium length with bigger, bolder spice and fruity notes.
