On the nose, FUNK. The agave is hiding behind that funk that I normally associate with cheaper products. If you told me this was an 1137 house blend, I would believe you. There’s agave there, hidden behind that overwhelming funk. A touch of vanilla. Cinnamon, butter, some floral notes. On the palate, that funk is ever present. The agave is very muted for me, it’s lost in that funky/swampiness. As it opens up, it’s there. Definitely some baking spices, cinnamon predominately. A little saline, something like cocoa. All in all, this isn’t a bad sipper by any means but don’t expect the old Pasote. It’s just not there, totally different beast. I personally will not be pursuing another bottle of this, though I’ll drink it if it’s around and I’d certainly recommend it as a stand-alone product. But really, this is a shadow of its former self, a prime example of changing distilleries and coming out worse.

#1579 A signature #1579 wallop of agave. Also citrus, spiciness and vanilla upon nosing. Butterscotch, vanilla, nutmeg and almonds flavors. Over the course of the the aging, the añejo has lost some of its mineral appeal.
