A –A musty start (mushroom, yeast, olive, etc.) in the aroma phase. There’s cooked agave, licorice, and a small dose of vanilla. A moment of apple/pear on the nose, which was nice. In addition to the alcohol, I picked up another chemical scent, maybe rubber? It isn’t a bad smell, but not my favorite of the tasting session.   T – Baking spices and licorice/anise, a blend of raw and cooked agave. I’m tasting black tea and black pepper. The peppermint and vanilla combo is interesting. F – Following the theme of the taste, I’m almost getting a chai tea vibe, had all the elements of ginger, cinnamon, clove, black pepper, and tea. Overall – This is a solid blanco, but not my favorite.

Aroma: All cooked agave up front, like a freshly opened agave oven, coupled with cinnamon and a clean minerality throughout. Taste: Light and creamy sweetness, cooked agave and notes of sugar cane. Finish: A burst of cooked agave, citrus, and black pepper. The most notable part was a lingering aftertaste of the aforementioned flavors that seems to coat not only the tongue, but the roof of the mouth as well.

Nice nose of cooked agave, lemon, and more of a tropical vibe like coconut or pineapple. If you blindfolded me I could be convinced it’s a mai tai. Mouthfeel is a little thicker than usual, and tastes of cooked agave, lemon, lime, but a little bit of acetate note that I don’t enjoy. Finish loses that flavor and is pleasantly long, and citrus forward.
