Aroma and palate: cinnamon, agave, spice, mineral, citrus, and herbal. Maybe good for cocktails , but not sipping IMHO.

Tasty offering but for me it still has the Cofradia funk though it certainly is turned down a few notches. The marketing claim to fame of this product is that all agave used are sourced only from Los Valle. In this day and age of agave used being from all over the denomination and possibly outside or not Blue Weber that is the extra effort needed to be unique. Good agave presence with some initial acidity that turns into roasted sweetness that is natural. The sweetness carries over into the finish and leaves the tongue tingling from the 44% ABV.

$29.99 For 1L of this stuff is now a contender for my best value of 2019. Nose full of agave aromas, on the tongue plenty of Cooked Agave flavor, with hints of pepper and earth. Smooth finish with a nice amount of pepper left on the tongue.

Elvelo packs a lot of flavors and it's bold. I think it's better as a mixer than a sipper, but it can easily be sipped. It's a great value for a 1 liter bottle for about $29.99. Its a typical La Cofradia tequila with aroma and tasting notes like cinnamon, spice, mineral/grass, vegetal, light citrus and a musty nutmeg-like presence. Perfect for high quality drinks.

the Cofradia funk is big on the aroma. have a hard time pulling anything else out. could be off-putting to those on the fence with NOM 1137. the flavor opens to cheesy, lactic agave but the pepper (44.5 ABV) cuts in to subdue the funk a bit. wood on the med+ finish. if you have a hard time with Cofradia, this is not going to be a pleasurable sipper for you. this repo is aged 5 months, has nice heat and like the blanco, comes in a 1ltr bottle for $34.99 and has a screw cap

agave and cinnamon on the nose. agave forward on flavor, with cinnamon, vegetal giving way to pepper on the finish. La Cofradia funk is not as pronounced on this one as it is on others from 1137. It is picked up more at the very end of the finish. 1L bottle for 34.99. Screw cap
