Generally agree with the comments. Holy green apple aroma! Strong agave flavour. A bit peppery. Fairly strong alcohol in the nose and flavour. I enjoyed it! Not the best, but sippable for sure. I do pick up that olive flavour (that I have only ever encountered with Fortaleza). A very decent value at $44 USD in Washington State. A bit harsh on the alcohol and not a huge finish. But solid nonetheless. Would make a DAMN fine marg. Second impression...... Very very strong cooked agave. Delish! Rating bumped to 86. I like this juice! People keep saying spicey and I am now getting a bit of cinnamon on the finish. Top of the middle shelf.

Eye: light gold with slow fat legs. Nose: Meaty with oak up front. Vanilla and wet earth then some cooked agave. Fresh spearmint and green peppers follow after it's had a chance to breathe. Palate: Comes on hot. Full body. Sweet bourbon. Vanilla and caramel are most prominent. Some cooked agave and red grapes. Light ethanol. Finish: Warm with black pepper. The cooked agave is most apparent here with some minerality. Long. Conclusion: A loud añejo with some very pronounced flavors. A solid tequila and great introduction for those coming from Bourbon.
