NOM 1479 | NOM 1479. Subtle nose, doesn’t give away a lot of agave or oak, fairly neutral footprint. Flavour starts off slow and builds nicely over a minute, agave is present and the oak stays firmly in the background. Spicy finish as it peaks, I can see this being really popular with novice drinkers and hard cores alike.

NOM 1479 | NOM 1479. Lote 001 bottle 0350. I have had these bottles for around 8 years, purchased in LV NV many moons ago. Nose is light agave and oak. On entry this is quite flavorful with bourbon notes of oak, caramel and some spice from agave as well ss sweetness. This fades nicely with some slight oak bitterness at the very end. Different distillery than the NOM 1460 Grover reviewed.

NOM 1479 | Aroma: Fantastic! It's less sharp than the Reposado and packed with notes. I get butterscotch, oak, leather, honey and a slight bit of smoke. Flavor: Again, not as harsh as the reposado but it almost tastes watered down. I get some caramel and oak but it's very mild. I was hoping for a flavor bomb but it's really light. Finish: Even though the flavor is mild there's still a decent finish to this one. It doesn't bring a ton of flavor with it but definitely hangs around.

NOM 1479 | NOM 1479 Aroma is barrel heavy with cherry, pine and vanilla. Flavor begins with a smooth sweetness followed by a peppery spice and then a distinct bitter minerality. The bitterness lingers on the finish for a moderate time. The bitter flavor and finish make this one hard to enjoy. 6/24/2017

NOM 1479 | Easily my favourite of the flight, nose is layered with prunes and tobacco. Barreling isn’t overly aggressive and interestingly augments some agave notes.

NOM 1479 | I was hopeful that this was going to be a nice surprise because it was on sale for $39.99. The best thing about this tequila is the fancy bottle, although I should’ve knew I was in trouble once I took off the fake metal-looking PLASTIC cap.

NOM 1460 | So this ones weird for me. I had this first when it was made in the older nom and I loved it. I was also new to drinking tequila and this was smooth and easy to drink. Recently I had a comparison of both on a blind taste with tapatio and herradura anejos. The old def was better but didn't taste as good as I remembered it. Still easy to drink but no flavors stood out. The new nom was the worst in the group because it had a weird baking soda aftertaste. If u can find the older bottle grab for a collection but there are much better anejos

Ok, for those that are not schooled on the baking soda aftertaste of spirits tasting, here is my plain language evaluation of this tequila: at $22 a shot, the only people who should buy this tequila at a bar are those buying a flight of Ambar and those people who love Corzo and Excellia. The people who should buy it for home are those that don't already own such tequila. This tequila is strong and maybe wants to be bourbon or something. My mouth is puckered up that I think I need some blanco so I don't look pissed off on my way home. That is the baking powder aftertaste.

Metallic copper color with full body. Pumpkin pie spice, vanilla & leather detected on the nose. Some cooked agave with cigar box on entry that gives way to a lingering finish that is marred by a distinct baking soda off flavor.
