Might be my favourite expression of this brand, the dryness and spice from the oak finally provide a counterpoint to the sweet ending. Drinks more like a rye whiskey than a tequila but it’s pleasant enough.

This doesn’t stray far from the profile of the blanco except it has a really gentle nose, almost neutral. Unbalanced sweetness shows up at the end to round things off, it’s ok.

The nose and flavour until mid palette are bang on, you can close your eyes and get all the sensations of walking through a distillery! Loses me a bit at the ending, tons of sweetness shows up that doesn’t fit with the rest of the profile, it’s a pretty big let down. A decent effort that I think will be popular amongst the rabble.

Easily one of my least favourite tequilas I’ve ever tried. It’s got a minty flavour to it, which I find completely out of sync with everything else that’s going on within it, and usually a sign of a tequila’s having been created with a diffuser. Everyone else seems to love it. I’m baffled.

I rescued this bottle from a little hole in the wall place I stopped at called LaTienda, it was run by a sweet old Asian lady, after an internal chuckle I grabbed the bottle and wiped of a layer of dust and bought it for 45$. As for the tequila it does have a really heavy alcohol smell and the first glass was a bit harsh. After opening up to the air the harsh bite backed of and some of the flavors stepped up. Although very very light the sweetness of the agave mixed well with the peppery bite. I like it but probably won’t return to the well when I can get better cheaper.
