I bought this on sale for $89 from Ludwig's.. nose was full of Vanilla, Caramel and Oak. on the taste it was hot and kind of harsh but had a nice creamy mouthfeel..then it was all vanilla, caramel and an abundance of oaky bitterness. I didn't feel it was balanced at all and there was very little if any cooked agave. If you like lots of barrel influence to cover up a bad Blanco then this might be a good choice for you. For me.. not so much. May use the rest of the bottle for Palomas..
