Better than the Reposado by a wide margin, this is nicely aged with some oak spice, caramel and agave and fades to a nice slightly sweet finish.

Very floral on the nose, carnations and gardenias along with an undercurrent of oak. Some slight bitterness on entry and the finish leaves a saccharin note that I don't care for. The guy who owns/owned this brand is in charge of the Rock's Teremana so be warned.

The finish in this is the only outstanding thing that I have to write about.....it’s long and lovely. Unfortunately this tequila doesn’t commit to a path, it disappears out of mind the moment you’re done.

Sweet, nutty, taste like an Oh Henry bar! I like the flavours going on but not for tequila, it just doesn’t scratch my itch.

I recall thinking very highly of this once upon a time, clearly my feelings evolved when I realized Turtle didn’t actually own this(or exist). It’s ok, I feel like it’s made for the sole purpose of not making gringos gag and while it has a smoothness I can appreciate I just don’t get any real agave.
