There is a huge amount of cooked agave packed into the aroma and flavor of this tequila. If you ever want to see what fully mature agave can do, try this one. Simply incredible. Agave, olive, brine, citrus, and minerals in the aroma. Flavor is absolutely delicious, with more cooked agave, cinnamon and minerals. Then comes the agave and olive finish that lingers perfectly. I love this stuff. You can’t make tequila like this with 3 and 4 year-old plants. Thank you, Sr. Enrique.

Aroma : Sweet cooked agave, grass, mint, and cinnamon. After the glass opens up a bit, you get even stronger grassy, vegetal notes. Taste : Sweet and hot (in a good way) profile full of cooked agave, vegetal notes, and cinnamon. The oily, full texture is really special and provides a dynamic medium to provide those sweet and hot flavors in a satisfying way. Finish : Long and fruity with a little heat, but isn't distracting from the initial taste. It's 2020 and this bottle (limited supply from what I hear, unless that changed) came out a while ago, so I would stock up if you can find it.

Solid bordering on excellent. I really appreciate the extra ABV bringing big flavors, with a strong agave punch. The short finish and relatively high price tag are the only things holding this back for me.

Absolutely delicious sharp sweetness from overripened agaves. Very well produced, from startto finish. Cinnamon, baking spice earthy, a little bit of citrus, some anise on the nose and taste. Great stuff without a doubt.

I’m drinking this in a restaurant so my notes might not be a deep as usual. The nose is great. Fresh agave, bright citrus (lime), white pepper and brine. I taste sweet cooked agave, olives & minerals. The finish is perfect for a higher proof tequila. I paid $21 for 1.5oz and I’d do it again. Salud! AustinTequilaConnoisseurs

Deceptive nose, I get a lot of vegetal and nutmeg but not overwhelming agave. Completely different story in my mouth, this is so clean and pure agave, reminds me of tasting ordinario straight out of the tank! Really great juice, lovely aftertaste fades slowly.

Nose is big and bold, I love it. Agave, citrus, a pinch of cinnamon and wet grass after rain. Really round and full mouthfeel. Cooked agave, I get slight olive notes that round into pepper at the end. Long and complex finish that keeps me thinking about the flavors dancing in the back of my throat.
