NOM 1522 - Better than I expected

Vanilla on the nose. Very smooth. Subtle taste, very little agave; but of course it's an anejo so one shouldn't expect too much agave. Some won't like the lack of boldness here; but this is easy sipping. Honestly, the scores on this site are unreasonably low; almost absurd. This is an approachable anejo and the quality is indisputable. I get that the subtle flavour isn't for everyone; but giving this less than 70 shows incompetence/lack of development in a tequila palate. I've had better, no question, but this is easy to recommend.

A very good tequila but very pricey when compared to other fine brands.
