Clean fresh agave and citrus (lime). Lovely nose. A lot of agave up front, slightly vegetal and a touch of sweet. The finish is nice, slightly thin but peppery.

More oak than agave on the nose and taste, but that's fine, as it has a nice sweet presence, cognac and whiskey notes. There's that dried fruit, some spices, vanilla, honey, caramel, almost cherry from the french finish, and even a little citrus in the background. this is really nice I enjoyed it a lot.

Light roast on the nose, a nuanced smoke. Light citrus notes, tropical fruit and some brine. Full bodied and oily, there’s a green herbal profile I get from karwinskii mezcals. Some spice on the backend, relatively brief but complex finish. Easy drinking for 46%

Aroma : Green olive-parmesan cheese, lactic combo that reminds me of Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength. Minerals, and ripe cooked agave are abundant too. Taste : The aromas carry through here with smaller emphasis on the lactic quality. There's still plenty of cooked agave, along with some black peppery spice and notes of cinnamon and light fruit. Finish : Carries more of the fruit from the initial taste along with more minerals. The finish is moderately long, and sweeter than the initial spiciness would indicate. Another great expression from Cascahuín. I'm curious to see what some extra % abv would look like with the lactic quality on this one.

Aroma : Agave with some baking spices and floral notes. Light fruits. Taste : Sweet cooked agave and vanilla with grass, mint, light spices and pepper. Nice oily texture. Finish : Medium length with light alcohol, and prolongs the floral notes prominent on the nose and initial taste. Budget priced tequila, but sips like a high end bottle. I'm curious how the minty quality here translates to the Reposado and Añejo, but neither of those were on Old Town Tequila where I got this. I'll have to look around.

WARNING - Hard to find Nose: Smokey oysters, brine and minerals, sweet agave, butter and a hint of green pepper. Palate: Mezcal SMOKE (not a mesquite / bbq smoke), green vegetal agave, creamy butter and then white pepper. Oily and viscous mouthfeel! Finish: Amazing! The nose and palate come together for a nice full flavored finish that lingers into a pepper ending. This is a tequila for experienced tequila drinkers and mezcal lovers!
