Nose: Gentle smoke, fruit and earthiness. Citrus rind and spiciness. A caramel/vanilla undercurrent. A slight sour note. The smokiness is not overpowering. It is well integrated into the aroma as a whole. Flavor: A big punch of pepper on entry, with accompanying bold anise. Oily, buttery, sweet fruit notes and agave. There is a butterscotch, caramel, toffee thing going on. The pop of pepper lingers but marries well with viscous sweetness. Neither the 50.5% ABV, nor the mesquite smokiness seem to be out of synch. This coats the entire palate and has staying power in the finish.

Nice creamy mouth feel. Rich cooked agave and butter leading to a lingering smokey finish. Pricey!

I love the premise of this product, it has all the enticing qualities of blue agave with a medium dose of smoke. I get a healthy hit of caramel which is odd considering it’s not barrel aged. Overpriced as fuck but I like it!

Gentle smoke, slight cheese & earthy aromas but it's the agave that shines above all. Loving the aroma. Smoke gentle on the nose, but much more prominent in the flavor, yet still allows the agave to come through loud and strong. This is a perfect balance between agave and smoke. Oily mouthfeel and creamy finish. The finish has nice waves of complexity as it slowly fades. Well done! (It would have rated even higher for value if the price was a bit lower.)

Sweet, slow-cooked agave, smoke and herbal and earth notes with a rounded, flavorful mouthfeel. The sweet agave flavor is followed - and balanced- by a smoky finish that lingers pleasantly. Highly drinkable for 50.5 abv. Well-crafted product that feels like an elegant, long-ago tequila, and not a mezcal. The mature blue agave is the star of this smoky show.

Sweet smelling smoke. Oaky, little fruity and floral Smoke. Doesn't hit right away. But lingers. Starts out sweeter and mellow. But blooms to nice rounded smoke flavour.

Almost mezcal like, but definitely tequila notes. Never knew this existed before seeing it out at a restaurant and it was worth $35 a pour.

Very good. Smokey, earthy, and agave.very similar tasting to mezcal. Truth be told though, for the price I would rather get a mezcal.

Slaps you in the face and then it enamours you with its finish. An interesting twist and must try. Smoky In a pit for 7 days, then tahona with the fibers, higher alcohol, scotch drinkers, spicy

Very strong finish of smoke and spice Agave is subtle and the smoke is the show Would be a great pairing with a cigar Suggested food pairing: smoked BBQ, Montreal smoked meat sandwich

A beauty at 105 proof, just the right amount of smoke and balance citrus notes. A little pricey but a special bottle from the makers of Patron

Not smoky enough, too sweet. Just an expensive gimmick to compete with mezcal.

Smokey, but the smoke is slightly less prominent than I hoped. Finish is nice. Could use slightly more sweetness to balance it out.

Super mild, little to no smoke on the nose Mild smoke, a little hot. Agave present but not harsh

Been waiting on this one for awhile! Ordered from Remedy Liquor in CA; packaged nicely, bottle has elegant shape & color, should look nice on backbars; really thought I would detect more smokiness across the nose; I detect sweet agave more than anything else; smooth across the palette; buttery on the backend of the tongue...wait a minute, here comes the smoke! Very clean finish as the buttery smoke dissipates; at a price point of $250.00 USD minimum, I’m not certain that many tequilas on the world have that value proposition; there are just too many great bottles at $115.00, or less.

Smoke. It’s Not Just for Mezcal Anymore.

Patrón, and Lunazul join Siembra Valles with earthen pit-cooked tequilas.
