Pink copper hue Profile is good but ends in a metallic finish. Great price! Tasted at El Tequileño tasting room. Will come back to add tasting notes…

Signature Tequileño nose. That volcanic water. Little bit of barreling. It’s a bright nose. Palate is subtle finish is easy with pepper on the finish. Easy sipper but not a lot going on. Nice pepper finish that lingers. Purchased on sale for 33.99

I had the chance to sip this with stony at their tasting room in MX. It’s a beautiful XA with all the DNA of El Tequileño. Price is high on this one but it is very limited.

One of the three top Cristalino’s being produced right now. Still showing some light barrel notes followed by agave and floral notes. Light sweetness.
