Aroma of cooked agave and a bit of citrus and pear. Nice flavour; vanilla and pear; quite light. Peppery finish. I really like this blanco.

Sweet agave aroma with caramel. Tastes like the cookie dough that mom used to make that she squeezed out of the contraption that looked like a caulk gun, and agave. A little on the thin side. Light agave start to finish with that tequila tingle. Excellent sipper on the sweet side balanced by the barrel. Found on sale $40 1 liter.

I enjoyed the complexity on the nose of this one, oak, vanilla, cooked agave and some spice. It was smooth and a bomb of vanilla with a light viscousity and short finish that had me thinking of vanilla vodka— pleasant but lacking some in the depth of cooked agave I want in an EA at this price point
