On the nose, Agave, minerals, grapefruit. Then a distinct brine, almost like a ham note that I’ve gotten with a lot of islay scotches. No smoke though. Some floral aromas, definitely a saline note. A bit of butter as it opens up some more. On the palate, the cooked agave is there but it is really part of the medley of flavors as opposed to standing out as the star. Cinnamon, citrus. Definitely getting that minerality and a vegetal note that I like, similar to jalapeño. Some earthiness, very oily and naturally sweet. A light bitter note which I don’t love, but it’s not over the top. It’s mostly on the finish. Overall, this is quite good. It stops just slightly short of being “excellent” on the finish, but the flavor really starts to explode as it opens up, and the nose is very good. I would love to keep this on hand, it’s quite good, but the price is definitely the major drawback. Overall a competent and quite tasty blanco, very oily and full flavored and bodied. I may have to revisit this in a blind, it’s been about 15-20 minutes and it keeps getting a little bit better and more interesting.
