This is a sweet tequila but not overpowered by additives like other brands. You can easily detect them in the finish but the taste is mostly a very standard extra añejo without complexity. Would never turn down a glass but I would spend my money on other brands for sure.

As far as cristalinos go, I think this was very unoffensive. It has a clearly artificial taste and a very quick finish with no agave, something I’m sure many people would enjoy but not me. The price tag is pretty insane even compared to other “high end cristalinos” (~3,500 MXN).

Anis, alcohol and agave on the nose, light oak color. Bitter taste, harsh peppery finish. I’ll finish this bottle as a mixer.
