A clean, straw colored blanco. Nose: Big saucy, sweet and spicy notes immediately jump to the forefront. Baked pineapple upside down cake, comes to mind: The richness of slow cooked pineapple, melted butter & crumbs, caramelizing brown sugar, allspice and cinnamon. An additional smokey pepper note and hints of vanilla creaminess. Fresh cut orange roses. A faint smell of attic dust. A bit of cider. Just the faintest suggestion of Mezcal funkiness, campfire smoke and wood influence at this stage. Flavor: White pepper and cinnamon heat blast out of the starting gates and refuse to back off. But the heat is a perfect foil to the fruit, agave, vanilla, anise, almond and salted melted butter - making for a rich and oily palate experience. In the mouth, more than in the nose, you find some its Mezcal heritage (having spent 28 days in a Don Amado Mezcal barrel). Then further stabilized in Stainless Steel for 30 days. Finishing impressions: Some minerals, grassiness and floral sensations show late in the finish. A lot of sweetness for 24 Brix agave - I have to think the barrels contributed to this. On the one hand, this is a bold, brash and feisty sip. On the other hand, this is a silky, suave and easy sipper. A great collaboration.

Lo primero que resalta es el tenue color pajizo resultado del reposo de 28 días en barricas usadas en mezcal espadín Don Amado.  NARIZ: muy sutil ahumado, menor al que se podía encontrar en el cascahuin aniversario; arcilla, pimienta, flor de azhar, agave crudo, ciruela amarilla, menta. BOCA: aquí si hay un buen golpe a mezcal, se siente el agave espadín, se confirma el sabor terroso, picante, la pimienta

Great artesanal tequila, agave flavor with a small hint of wood and tiny smokiness. Reminds me s lot the Chascahuin Tahoma Blanco. Excelente tequila artesanal, agave cocido con un toque de madera y un ligero sabor ahumado. Sabor artesanal. Me recuerds mucho al Cascahuin Tahona Blanco.

Just picked this up at OTT. Excited for this twist on a blanco tequila. Color is like very light reposado. Aroma is strong and different than most blancos. Lots of cooked, bright agave but also some dark earth aroma. In a flute there is noticeable alcohol and hint of smoke. Also a hint of the cement from fermentation. Taste is strong with sweet agave. Definite smoke in the mouth but not overpowering. Tingly pepper on the tongue and throat. Finish is my favorite part. Really long lasting and holds on to many of the aromas and flavors. The hint of smokey espadin is noticeable and good. Overall this is unique, cool and very tasty. It definitely is strong in taste and needs time for exploration.
