Just to get this out there, it’s not bad juice. But the whole cristalino thing is not my cup of tea. -10 points for buy again/recommend. Asian pear on the nose(bright but ‘watery’) , hits the mouth very one note, finishing with residual sweetness and a touch of heat. I’ll keep a bottle in the freezer for shots.

An interesting style. “Double aged in whiskey barrels” for 18 months. You can certainly taste the whiskey notes. It covers up much of the tequila flavors, agave, etc. Not a bad sipper on ice but it doesn’t really allow the Añejo to come through. If you like bourbon and are shifting to aged tequilas, this would be a good on ramp.

This is tough as it smells completely like whiskey and tastes like it too, I don’t hate it but did they use agave?
