Nose: The aromas come in layered waves. Herbal: celery, fennel and cilantro. Sumptuous agave sweetness, with tag-along cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The smell of a salty sea breeze. Alkaline minerals, wet grass and soil. Citrus: Lima and grapefruit zest. A gentle waft of molasses. At 50.5%, virtually no ethanol blow back - just aromatic warmth. Flavors: The flavors come at you from all directions: Treble, midrange and bass notes. Staccato notes of anise, ginger, cinnamon and pepper punctuate the palate. Then rich round agave, hints of flowers, and ripe fruit components take a warmer, more prominent role in the profile. As Puntas continues to open up, coffee and dark chocolate bass notes emerge. Buttery and briney. A fine tribute to the last collaboration between Maestros Carlos y Tomas.

Incredible, complex aroma and doesn’t taste as high proof as it is.

Dare I say it? This may be the best Ocho Plata I've ever tasted. It is also the last project that Tomas Estes worked on with Carlos Camarena, and it is a gift to tequila lovers. The concept: Take the best cut of the distillation runs (60-63% abv) and blend them all together. Add just enough water to bring it down to 50.5% abv, and bottle it. The result: Super rich and complex aroma with a lot going on. It is packed with the aroma of cooked agave, floral (rose?) and citrus notes (grapefruit?), anise, brine, olive and minerals. SMELLS AMAZING! Flavor: More agave, minerals, brine and olive that lingers nicely in the finish, which is long and fun because of the higher ABV. Also, let this breath throughout the time you're drinking it (don't rush!) and it will continue to evolve and reveal more and more interesting characteristics. Bravo!!!

Rated the wrong tequila trying a blind rating for the first time. Should have been Tequila Ocho Plata 2017 Los Nopales. The 2017 did not come up as an option. I contacted TMM to see about correcting this.
