Nose: very slight agave / mineral/ vanilla/ hint of citrus / anise / nutmeg/ butterscotch/ maple / cream soda / alcohol Taste: artificial vanilla/ agave/ pepper/ light artificial sweetener or sugar/ banana/ melon / anise / peppermint/ all spice / butterscotch/ molasses/ alcohol Finish: mildly viscous mouthfeel with lingering artificial vanilla, bitterness, pepper, earth, and alcohol. A light minty finish. This cristallino anejo is loaded with artificial vanilla and a sweetener that could be just sugar. The bitterness after the sweetness and artificial vanilla feels like a bad roller coaster ride.

Artificial tequila. I know this gets a lot of hype from the masses (non craft tequila folks) but it is overly sweet and too vanilla tasting

Tasted at thuans March 28 2024 After-taste like band aids- peaty scotch flavor overpowers the agave profile. perhaps scotch lovers would enjoy it, but it's not for me
