Great aroma with cooked agave prominent supported by sweet caramel, stone fruit (esp peach and plum) and something like honeysuckle. Flavor follows aroma with multi-faceted sweetness and a subtle but noticeable spicy heat. Finish has a warm heat with almost a honey sweetness that lasts a relatively long time. 5-30-2024 Cascahuin triple - Tahona blanco, 11 Brix blanco and Siete Veces Diez reposado

Lot 126, bottled 060921 Aroma initially had strong vegetal notes but after ~5 minutes cooked agave emerges as the primary note. Some underlying aromas of citrus and minerals enhance this blanco. Flavor opens with a nice peppery spice that quickly blends with sweetness from the cooked agave. Lasting warm finish is very nice and held this one stand out from so many others that fade in a flash. 5-30-2024 Cascahuin triple - Tahona blanco, 11 Brix blanco and Siete Veces Diez reposado

Beautiful legs and mouthfeel. Barrel and agave on nose and some sweetness after letting it sit. Pepper hits mid palate and follows through on the finish. The higher proof is present. Nice tongue buzz from the high proof. Very nice but price hurts it

This is nice. Love the nice viscous mouthfeel with agave, hay, and pitted fruit. This is very nice.

Aroma: herbal, earthy, soil, pine, woody Flavor: earthy, cooked agave, honey, black pepper Really good reposado although somewhat subtle in terms of flavor. The only reason I didn’t give it a higher score was due to price of high 200 range
