Not a favorite. A little blah tasting.
Nose: cooked agave, some earthy notes, tropical floral, and honey Flavor: Hot spicy entry, cooked agave, some sweetness, has a dry mouth feel Finish: Has a big pepper finish that lingers
NOM 1502- It has a wine aroma with some vanilla, butterscotch, cinnamon, caramel, and maybe some fruit. It's an ok anejo, but a bit overpriced at $50. There are so many better brands you can get in that range. Overall a decent sipper.
Aroma is filled with sweet scents of flowers and caramel/honey with a bit of agave. Flavor is sweet and smooth with bitter almond coming in at the end. The finish is surprisingly short. 8/15/2015
A bit of agave and earth in the aroma but dominated by a medicinal, alcohol aroma. Thick, oily texture but without much flavor. A bit of spice, a bit of mint but overall just blah. Finish is medium length. 8/15/2015
Buttery aroma with dirt/earth and agave also prevalent. A distinct aroma of rubber is also noticeable. The earth and agave are upfront in the flavor followed by some peppery spice and mint. From start to finish, the flavor is distinctly bitter. Finish is relatively short. Not quite sure what to make of this one. In a word I guess I would say unbalanced. Some characteristics of an enjoyable blanco are there but offset by the rubber in the aroma (I should note that the rubber aroma fades after ~5 minutes in the glass), the bitter flavor and short finish. 8/15/2015
The blanco is great, and a fantastic value at $25. I had high hopes for the repo, also $25. However, I'm not a fan of the casking. It's got a nice nose though.
Lou Agave gives his opinion of Paqui Añejo in this video review.
One of the newer luxury tequilas on the increasingly crowded scene of agave spirits is PaQuí Tequila, which debuted in the US earlier this fall.
Not overly impressed. Mid palate and finish was blah
