A bit medicinal from ethanol initially, this is better after sitting in the glass for 10 minutes or so. Agave, citrus, nice mouth feel and $23 US. This came from HiTime 2 years ago, inside the front label is Lote 02 07/06/2015. It gets a 9 for value. Sad now that I didn't pick up the reposado as well.

Served in a Nos’r stainless steel nosing glass. Nose is mint, agave, and light citrus. Light body, floral and citrus notes with a touch of cinnamon and pepper. A little thin and the finish isn’t incredibly complex but the mild and enjoyable heat lingers on the roof of the mouth. Super pleased with this at $299 pesos

38% ABV Mexican release Invigorating nose: Fruity and floral with a toasted nutty feel to the agave that is prominent. There are earth and mineral notes and the aroma of sweet fennel resting in a musty root cellar. Also, baking spice and pepper make this an interesting nosing. Flavors: Initial burst of bold cinnamon and jalapeño. Followed up with with a balancing act of creamy almond paste, vanilla and white pepper zing. It coats the mouth in a rich fashion. This picks up a couple of points on value. A very nice bargain tequila.

Nose: Cinnamon and spice, white pepper, caramel, citrus, minerals and oak. Flavors: Prominent barrel spice. Nutmeg, clove cinnamon and pepper. Light colored tree fruit, and agave. A hint of butterscotch. In the mouth I get alternating sensations of creaminess, then roughness around the edges. Finish: A tad of bitterness on the finish, but with some nice fruit and caramel. Mexican release at 38% ABV, at a cost of $300 pesos. Picked up a point on value.
