Well I won this tequila in a new years raffle and I was excited to try it so here it is. In the Smell I get wood, agave and alcohol. the taste is sweet and pleasant with no burn a little woody there. Finish goes down without a burn and leaves you with a nice taste. Overall what keeps this tequila at a low point average is the price, you can get better quality and many more with $600.
Aroma is dominated by alcohol and a strange rubber/asphalt note (not good). There may be some orange/citrus but it is largely hidden. [With time (10 mins) the alcohol in the aroma settles down a bit and caramel is noticeable. But, the rubber/asphalt is still there.] Flavor is sweet from caramel and fruit with a bit of heat coming at the end. Also, a little of that rubbery off note shows up also. Finish is short and nothing about this tequila really lasts. For the price, definitely not worth buying. 09-21-2022
