Nose: Grassy agave, and a peculiar aroma that I always find in La Cofradía bottlings, something that makes me think of fruit pits. Palate: Surprisingly mellow for higher proof, initial hot burst of agave and subtle minerality, relatively short finish. I get that grassy fruit pit flavor, very subtle. Mixed up in a margarita and the higher proof absolutely shines. As a sipper, it’s decent, as a mixer, it’s rock solid.

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

This is one of the best values in tequila. cinnamon, cooked agave, a touch of honey sweetness. A little earth but not as grassy as I expected. Minerality is there. Good enough to sip neat but fantastic as a mixer.

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.
