Take my rating with a grain of salt — I’m generally not a huge fan of still-strength tequila. It’s very alcohol forward and had a bit of an anise roll off to my palate (not a fan of black licorice). Love love love the regular blanco.

Fruit and caramel on the nose, taste is baked agave with a touch of wood and brine, nice medium to long finish. A smooth, tasty, pleasantly spicy sipper.
