NOM 1472 Quite bourbon forward and nothing like the reposado which is aged in French oak. This opens up quite a bit after sitting for 10-15 minutes in the glass and brings caramel, barrel spice and some agave to the table.

NOM 1472 Nicely spicy from the 49.5% ABV the majority is from the French oak this spends its time in.

Nice green pepper nose. Hot in the mouth initially due to 99 proof. Quite long tongue buzzing/numbing finish. Sweetness that lingers after the numbing subsides.
