Aroma: very aggressive alcohol attack (least favorite thing about this profile). Burns too much… I’m even surprised to say this. Other NOM 1139 brand are more friendly and delightful in their aroma bouquet. Aroma Notes added through the app (will add later on here) It improved in flavors and was able to enjoy it. Loved the overall complexity, it takes you through many flavors and still enjoyed some agave soul. Flavor notes added through the app (will add later on here). Need to revisit since glassware at the bar was meh. Tasting at Madre Oaxaca @ LA - $20 1oz pour…

Agave monster on the nose. Beautiful nose. Palate is interesting but tasty, not sure I know how to describe it. Nice creamy mouth feel with some tongue numbing but it's sweet. Opens up after a few minutes to more deliciousness. Expensive but I like it

Rated an 87 but then gave it an 84 blind. On the blind I noticed an herbal (sage?) and mineral nose that was just ok for me, with more minerals and pepper on the flavor.

Nose: agave- sweet /white pepper/ banana/ peach/ lime-grapefruit notes / floral / earth Taste: agave sweetness/ pepper / banana/ citrus / orange peel / spearmint / honey /alcohol Finish: clean cool water / lingering sweet and pepper finish - has a good mouthfeel- an excellent residue feeling This is a fabulous tequila that may never be made again. The Distillation Strength 55% abv might be a touch high….it could have been 50%, had all the flavor and prevented the alcohol aftertaste. But this overall is a beautiful tequila, and the brand should be revived if possible just based on how good this is.

If you like high proofs this one will be easy to like. Peppery and herbal with a bit of citrus it's well balanced.

Very similar flavor to my #1 favorite, the big brother, Tapatio 110! About $20 more and very hard to find, but I’m glad I tried it.

Rated this #1 in a high proof blind of 6 blancos. Flavor bomb! Really enjoyed this one. Thought it was complex and deep in flavor and preferred this one over Tapatio 110 coming from the same distillery.

I enjoy high proofs, and although this one is good, it’s just shy of what I prefer. The initial taste on the palate is very good, but then the heat steals the show. The sweet, peppery agave punch is quickly overridden by the alcohol burn. There’s a nice finish after the alcohol fades.

This was incredibly delicious. I was fortunate enough to have grabbed the last bottle and it does not seem to be coming back. This had a high proof bite but I didn't mind. Awesome nose great flavor and finish. Super sweet and fruity. I would definitely buy it again if available. Lost some points for value. Probably would be in the mid 90s if value wasn't a factor.

Doesn’t smell like much, but burns like a bitch, probably wouldn’t drink again to be honest.

Too much alcohol for my taste, light mouth feel and big burn Would stick with the añejo or repo

Very interesting: it’s hella peppery, but not in a way that so aggressive you have sip slowly. And sip slowly we shan’t. We shall guzzle. But I digress! It’s like a low-level, fine-grained pepperiness present from start to finish in a background sort of way. Earthy but still bright. Almost a bit of smoke or something to it - although I hate people who describe everything as smokey. Anyway, it’s time to get back to my life. Highly recommend.

Second stab at a review first one went into the ether. I don’t remember what I said but this second sample is feeling like a different tequila to me. Shows me how my tastes ebb and flow. Nose. Is heavy minerals. Wet cement. Hint of citrus and Herbaceousness Taste. Olive oil. With creamy herbs again. Sweet agave and cinnamon hearts. Finish. Nice and long with that Cinnamon heart spice. This taste totally hit me differently. Picked up on things I didn’t before and I missing some of the stuff I did. The bottle is half empty now so that might account for a bit.
