Lot 13 6/12/06: Caramel, citrus and agave peeking through, it’s a decadent nose. Butterscotch, spice and pepper, low heat with a medium finish and does offer some lingering heat.

Lot 7 2004: Sweet bouquet of cinnamon, vanilla and honey on the nose. Really surprising and pleasant. There’s oak, leather, cooked agave and pepper notes. Not excessively complex, I hesitate to say flat but pretty straightforward. A nice heat sitting on the roof of my mouth, the finish is nice.

Lot 030 4/16: Agave, pear and faint notes of citrus on the nose. Light to medium body, round mouthfeel with low key notes of cooked agave and a small hit of pepper toward the end. Short finish with little heat. Leaves just a little bit to be desired. Lot 17, 6/8/06: heavier nose, agave, wet grass and orange citrus. Much fuller mouth, cooked agave which is immediately followed by big pepper spice in more pronounced way. Finish is long, more heat and complexity. Superior to the newer releases. I would rate this lot higher, perhaps 84

Nose: Mustiness, minerals, a sharp note, citrus and agave. Needs some time bloom, then more fruit notes arrive and mustiness recedes. Flavor: Musty quality returns with jalapeño heat. A cake batter flavor that finishes a touch bitter. Some odd nuances to this tequila - different.

Bottle from 2006. Very light aromas of roast agave and oak. In the mouth this añejo blooms with caramel, agave, barrel spice and a nice viscous feel on the tongue. The finish is long and nicely sweet with the roast agave notes on the nose hanging around till the end.

Slight baked agave aroma with just a hint of butterscotch and oak. Short finish with a bit of numbness on the tongue.
