The deep well water gives us a very earthy presence In both smell and taste . Still not G4 And slightly higher priced.

Aroma : Lots of cooked agave, some minerals, and green apple. No strong alcohol notes. Taste : Thick and oily and with crisp agave. There's a small degree of minerality here as well, but there is also olive and cinnamon. Finish : Long and somewhat alcohol numbing with plenty of cooked agave lingering for a while after. Normally I would think this level of alcohol would be a distraction from the quality, but it ends up complimenting it considering the simplicity, but full flavor of all the notes.

Aroma : Complex with pear/peach fruit notes, cooked agave, vanilla, oak, and mint. Taste : You can definitely taste the extra alcohol on this one. But that does play nicely into the baking spice/black pepper spiciness this tequila has going on. There is also some degree of peach here as well as caramel and a small amount of oak. Finish : Long and somewhat hot with emphasis on the black pepper/baking spice. Some vanillla. This is definitely the 'hottest' tequila I've had from NOM 1579. Great complex flavor but interesting to see such an alcohol presence on a bottle like this. But then again, this is a 110 proof, so I'll have to see how similar ABV's measure up.

Earthy nose, intense minerality on the palate with earth and alcohol heat. You can definitely feel the higher proof, but it still falls far short of harsh and is surprisingly easy going down. Delicious.
