On the nose is cooked agave, hay, herbs, mineral. The flavor had agave, black pepper, alcohol, a nice sweetness. The finish is spicy, there is hint of jalapeño and butterscotch in the background.

Lot 70 of 122. An amazing nose and taste. Nice fruit with some heat, caramel, vanilla, apricot/fruit, orange citrus. Sweet agave passing through, and not all oak with the 10 yr aging. Taste has a sweetness with alcohol (but not excessive for a 110 proof), caramel, vanilla, raisen/apricot. orange citrus. Amazing!!

Aroma : Cooked agave, vegetal grass, and cinnamon. Taste : Notes from the aroma carry through here too, with some black pepper as well. This is slightly spicy and fairly oily. Finish : Long with butter and grass notes, and some light spice too.

Aroma : Agave, cinnamon, caramel, and grass notes. Taste : Light agave, and peppery spiciness. Caramel here as well. There is also a bitter/acidic note that goes along with the agave/caramel combo. Finish : Medium length with more peppery spiciness and some alcohol heat.

Aroma : Cooked agave, light oak, herbal and vegetal notes. Also some amount of caramel as well. Taste : Light agave and stronger oak. There is also some vanilla and grass here. Somewhat peppery, there is also a unique "honeyed" taste to this. Medium bodied with light oils. Finish : Medium in length and more bitter and spicy than the initial notes.

The aroma and flavor of this really showcase the difference between the regular line fermented in stainless steel vs. the Suave line fermented in the lined concrete tanks. This has more vegetal notes on the nose along with cooked agave. It will be interesting to see how these 2 lines change as the new oven, which replaced one of the autoclaves, comes fully into play. This has a good amount of barrel notes of wood and caramel. Finish grabs the throat a bit and holds this back in my rating. Still a solid product from a small family owned distillery.
