The nose is phenomenal, banana and crème caramel, makes you wanna five right in the bottle. Super boozy, threw me off as I expected silky smooth but this has some serious fire in its guts. The barrel, unsurprisingly, is doing most of the talking here, I can actually still find some agave when I go digging for it but this has the pedigree of a great whisky. Don’t let me score fool you, it lost major points on value(is anything worth that much?!) but this is delightful and a well made tequila. I count myself lucky to even have the chance to taste.

Nose is Baking spices, Werther’s original candy, cooked agave. More caramel on the palate, it’s sweet which turns to some burn and a lingering, albeit simple, finish.

The nose is the best part. I detect fresh agave and bright citrus. It’s clean. I taste the agave and some pepper. The finish is short but clean. This is a non offensive tequila but it lacks depth and complexity. I have visited their distillery so I know that they make tequila in the traditional way and they strive for superior quality.
