2008 El Carrizal. Nicely balanced extra anejo. You get light notes from barrel with a little spice, vanilla and baking spices with that La Alteña Agave.

Absolutely stunning off the nose, smells like a dessert you want to dive in to. Sharp and intense alcohol comes though mid palette and while not entirely unpleasant it disrupts the balance of the juice. Probably my least favourite Ocho but still better than most tequila out there.

Definitely kept the Ocho pedigree by having that agave bomb off the nose, far more herbaceous that I’ve had in previous vintages. Short and dry(yep, not idea how?!) finish that leaves you wanting more. Another gem from an iconic brand.

Found it in DC @ $36/bottle. Bottle #91,515. Clear tequila with great aromas of green banana, orange peel, herbal tea, minerals, lemon grass, and peach. Palate full of peppermint, chamonte, jasmine flowers, raspberry, avocado cream, hazelnut, rosemary, olives and agave raw. Finish is sweet, silky but not oily, with peppermint, peach and cream with little white pepper.

2012- Beautiful flavor, delicious, perhaps the best blanco I’ve ever had. Clear almost shinning bright. Aromas include guava, pomegranate, tropical fruits, grapefruits, peppermint and olives. Palate and body are full of cooked agave, spices, grapefruit, and tropical fruits with spearmint. Finish is long and spicy, zesty, with agave, eucalipto and tropical fruits. $44/bottle in NJ better than $64 in VA
