Easily one of my least favourite tequilas I’ve ever tried. It’s got a minty flavour to it, which I find completely out of sync with everything else that’s going on within it, and usually a sign of a tequila’s having been created with a diffuser. Everyone else seems to love it. I’m baffled.

I rescued this bottle from a little hole in the wall place I stopped at called LaTienda, it was run by a sweet old Asian lady, after an internal chuckle I grabbed the bottle and wiped of a layer of dust and bought it for 45$. As for the tequila it does have a really heavy alcohol smell and the first glass was a bit harsh. After opening up to the air the harsh bite backed of and some of the flavors stepped up. Although very very light the sweetness of the agave mixed well with the peppery bite. I like it but probably won’t return to the well when I can get better cheaper.

Heavy vanilla with some rounded citrus on the nose. Flavour is hot and heavy with the barrel giving a balancing bitterness.
