Very agave-forward nose on this, I can smell both cooked and raw. After some aeration, I detect some faint pear and apple notes. On the first sip, black pepper is the dominant flavor, followed by cooked agave. The finish is mostly pepper for me, and fades out relatively quickly. I was hoping for some of the apple and pear notes that were in the aroma, but the pepper is still nice on this one.

Nose is very nice cooked agave with some earthy tones and slight citrus. Thick in the glass leaving lots tears and legs. Also thick mouth feel that has some peppery spice and lots of agave flavor. Warms nicely with a medium long finish. Nice Blanco for around $27, value and taste!

Rated blind after aeration. Aroma: nice mix of baked and green agave, some pineapple and alcohol. Glass: coats, wide-ish flat legs, sheeting, leaves lots of small pearls. Mouthfeel: light to moderate consistency. Flavor: follows the aroma nicely as white pepper builds. Finish: rates just slightly lower than aroma and flavor, which is still pretty high. I wanted to rate the finish even higher because there's still so much flavor present, but the white pepper finish isn't quite as long as I would prefer. Value: at $30 this is a most incredible value. The scoring would be higher and balanced if the finish were just a bit longer.
