This is a great blanco tequila in the “traditional” fashion. The aroma is full of vegetal notes - cooked agave, dirt/earth, green pepper and mint. The flavor picks up on the aroma and begins softly with vegetal flavors then evolves to a spicy black pepper and cinnamon. Finally, a bitter almond flavor emerges and carries into a long, lingering finish. This blanco takes a spot among some of the truly great blancos in the tequila universe. The aroma, flavor and finish combine into something special. However, with a price of $85 (from Astor Liquors) this blanco is double the price of other great blancos (Siete Leguas, Suerte, 123). So, it is hard to score the Criollo highly on value. 11/03/2018

Aroma: Very unique aroma. I get a lot of mineral notes (clay, wet rocks) and also mint, cinnamon, and flowers. Not something that I've ever experienced before. Flavor: Very smooth for a high proof tequila. I still get a lot of the mineral notes and a lots of mint. There's almost a buttery flavor as well. Finish: Incredibly smooth. I'm surprised it's high proof because there is no burn but finishes really smooth and hangs around.

Taste of agave hint of citrus,apple and pear. Herbaceous nose. Soft lingering finish. Very smooth not a peppery tequila at all.

A Pleasant Tequila Stroll Down Calle 23

Cask has a nice, well-edited selection and I came home with a brand I’d never seen before called Calle 23. The sales lady said that the tequila was created by a French scientist and the reposado was the most carefully crafted. Needless to say, I was intri
