Might be my favourite expression of this brand, the dryness and spice from the oak finally provide a counterpoint to the sweet ending. Drinks more like a rye whiskey than a tequila but it’s pleasant enough.

Aroma: Very similar to the Blanco and Reposado. I get a lot of medicinal harshness at the front. Behind that is a bit of butterscotch and mint. Flavor: Not a ton going on. It's sweet. Lots of vanilla but besides that there isn't much... I was hoping for something a bit more complex. Finish: A little more mellow than the Blanco and Reposado. It's still solid but definitely less harsh.

This line is very consistent. At the open, the slight alcohol/petrol aroma appears again but is then replaced by an oaky caramel and fruity sweetness. The aroma is so sweet it is almost candy-like. This isn't bad but is relatively one-dimensional. Similarly, the flavor has a sweet/spice combination that is pretty blah. Short finish once again. Overall, the Amate is a decent, solid tequila at a reasonable price. (The repo is probably the bargain of the line and the añejo is probably over-priced). But, there is just nothing that stands out about this tequila. When you can get a Suerte or 7L at a similar or lower price, the Amate falls out of the picture fairly quickly. 06/18/2017 (vertical tasting)

Amate feels overall like an attempt to capitalize on the reputation of Tequila as the smooth spirit, and it certainly is smooth. I personally think it needs a little more squanch, perhaps some fiber in the fermentation and a few staves of Hungarian or white oak in the barrels.

Vanilla hit with a spice/burn and oak finish. Slight sweet to it once it breathes a little more. This is not a bad bottle and need to try more. Cost $47.99 + 6.93 shipping NOM 1173

Heavy vanilla with some rounded citrus on the nose. Flavour is hot and heavy with the barrel giving a balancing bitterness.

Tasted at home in. Riedel glass. Bottle says NOM 1173. Nice medium yellow gold in color with no alcohol on the nose. Aroma is soft, but pleasant scent of dried fruit and anise. Slow thick tears form on the side of the glass when swished around. Initial few tastes are smooth with little to no burn at all. Taste is similar to the nose, but not overly impressive. I've read where others say it was too sweet, but I don't think so. It's a good sipping tequila, but may be slightly overpriced. B-
