The first hit on the aroma is caramelized plum, with secondary notes of brown sugar and vanilla. The flavor follows through with the same notes of brown sugar combined with baking spices, which come through strong and identifiable at the end. The finish is a burst of anise blended with cinnamon sticks, and a port wine sweetness.

Story: Añejo expression of the ArteNOM line, made in the same distillery as Tears of Llorona, Cimarron, Fuenteseca and Don Fulano. Aroma: Lots of pepper, touch of mint, fruity. Caramel and agave, definitely very prominent whiskey notes. Banana, very light ethanol. Vanilla when I tip my glass just right. A little water brings out butterscotch near the end. Wow, this aroma is very complex. Palate: Instantly hit with sweet caramel and pepper. Cooked agave, and that whiskey note coming through. I’m getting only a faint hint of vanilla, but it’s there. Definitely fruity, though I can’t pinpoint a specific fruit. Verdict: Interesting, a tasty tequila, and one I would recommend trying. It won’t be a staple in my bar, but when I’m looking for something fruity and peppery, I’ll reach for this.

Review: ArteNom Tequila

Tequila ArteNOM, from Las Joyas del Agave, is unique in that it draws tequila from several different distilleries, acting like a curator and showing off the “house style” of different distilleries.
