On the nose, agave but definitely some ethanol. Expected for a higher proof but noticeable. Some salinity, a little lime and minerality. On the palate, very sweet agave goodness. Some Cinnamon, minerality and a bit of a buttery note that is very enticing. Overall a delicious tequila. It’s a shame that 3G isn’t doing this as their normal blend, I’m already contemplating a case of this. Very delicious and well priced if you can find it around $40.
Not a fan of this one. Nice nose, no real agave notes, funky finish.
Finally got to it and it’s a keeper. Double points for the price (Texas). A Sauza must for sure.
Nose: Raw oak. Faint bourbon aroma. General fruitiness, with cherry standing out. Vanilla and mellow barrel spice. Some earthiness. Flavor: Barrel oak is rough around the edges. Pepper and vanilla. Semi oily texture. The sweetness has a bitter/off quality on the tongue. No obvious hotness to the 45% ABV. Finish: There is something odd in the aftertaste - and it lingers in a detracting manner. Definitely a step or two down from Don Cenobio’s Batch.
Blind tastings are the best way to find out what you really like, free of marketing hype, bias, and previous experiences. They also give you the opportunity to experience tequila in a whole new way—using only your senses.
