Copper colored. Nose: First whiff brought a lot of oak and bourbon notes, striking fear that these aromas were going to be overbearing for me. But they quickly mellowed, bringing waves of barrel spice, fruity and floral scents, vanilla, butterscotch and counterpoint earthiness. Flavor: Immediate pepper in your face. But it backs off, allowing buttery caramel, almond and butterscotch room to strut their stuff. Quite a lot of fruitiness present, but I’m having difficulty identifying individual fruits in that makeup - maybe dark cherry? Punchy cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. Finish: A slightly nagging bitter and hot taste in the finish.

Aroma: First pass before swirling: Citrus rind, light white pepper, grilled pineapple and some grassy herbal notes. Second pass, after a chance to breathe, mineral notes emerged, agave and lemon. A bright nose. Flavor: Some weight to the body. Caramelized sweet agave with brown sugar undertones. A hot pepper note, a trace of licorice and slight bitterness. There is tiny undercurrent of something in the aftertaste that I can’t quite pin down. Finish: Medium long heat, sweet, and licorice fruity notes. The literature says the blanco is rested for an unspecified period of time? and charcoal filtered. And the brand verbiage refers to this tequila as a cristalino. Previous to tasting this, I did not know that a blanco could qualify as a cristalino. But there is a CRT Circular, dated 17 de noviembre 2016, that addresses “Tequilas Madurados Cristalinos.”

Tasting this reminded me of putting a 9 volt battery on my tongue to see if it still works. I can’t understand how anyone would launch a liquid this bad.

Not sure why this needs to exist, it is no bueno for me. Tasted at El Buho.
