Aromas of green apple, herbs, cut grass and cinnamon. Cooked agave and cinnamon flavor- nice oily mouthfeel. Bright and crisp.

Who doesn't get excited each time a new product rolls out of El Pandillo? This is the newest one and we were lucky enough to get an early bottle. Slightly different production methods used here, as this is the first one to make use of the wood fermentation tanks recently installed. Fermentation is a mix (20% wood tanks, 80% stainless steel, both without fiber.) It's also the first product from El Pandillo to use 100% spring water (which they also used to create steam for the brick ovens.) Aroma: Cooked agave, earth, some green apple, anise and white pepper. Not overly complicated but if you search long enough you'll find nice subtle hints revealing themselves slowly. Flavor: Pretty much all cooked agave on the flavor. No complaints there! It has a thick and oily mouthfeel. Finish: Probably my favorite part of this tequila. The cooked agave sweetness lingers and some nice cinnamon comes through. Nice touch. The first batch consists of 1,780 cases, which should arrive early January to the USA (California, Texas, New Jersey, Florida, and Illinois.) Recommended? Of course! You need to try this!

Wood fermentation complexity over big Pandillo baked agave flavor. Super smooth Spring Water finish. You would think this spent a few weeks in a barrel. Delicious.

My understanding is 20% is fermented in open-air wood tanks (the rest in stainless). And this is the first(?) to use 100% spring water at El Pandillo. It’s definitely agave forward and clean. A bit green on the nose and not as floral as some others at 1579. Going down it’s packed with agave, a little spice, and a soft creamy mouth. Not a lot of competing flavors here, but you feel closer to the still. I dig it.
