Aroma : Green olive-parmesan cheese, lactic combo that reminds me of Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength. Minerals, and ripe cooked agave are abundant too. Taste : The aromas carry through here with smaller emphasis on the lactic quality. There's still plenty of cooked agave, along with some black peppery spice and notes of cinnamon and light fruit. Finish : Carries more of the fruit from the initial taste along with more minerals. The finish is moderately long, and sweeter than the initial spiciness would indicate. Another great expression from Cascahuín. I'm curious to see what some extra % abv would look like with the lactic quality on this one.

Aroma : Agave with some baking spices and floral notes. Light fruits. Taste : Sweet cooked agave and vanilla with grass, mint, light spices and pepper. Nice oily texture. Finish : Medium length with light alcohol, and prolongs the floral notes prominent on the nose and initial taste. Budget priced tequila, but sips like a high end bottle. I'm curious how the minty quality here translates to the Reposado and Añejo, but neither of those were on Old Town Tequila where I got this. I'll have to look around.

WARNING - Hard to find Nose: Smokey oysters, brine and minerals, sweet agave, butter and a hint of green pepper. Palate: Mezcal SMOKE (not a mesquite / bbq smoke), green vegetal agave, creamy butter and then white pepper. Oily and viscous mouthfeel! Finish: Amazing! The nose and palate come together for a nice full flavored finish that lingers into a pepper ending. This is a tequila for experienced tequila drinkers and mezcal lovers!

Aroma : Vegetal, herbal, and grassy aroma packed with cooked agave. There is also some underlying pepper and licorice. Taste : Agave, black pepper, vanilla, mint, and citrus notes. Lightly sweet and oily in the mouth. Finish : Warm and peppery with plenty of residual cooked agave, and light spice. I'll need to keep my eye out for more Cascahuín. This is only the 2nd bottle I've tried and both are (in my opinion) better than a fair amount of the NOM 1579 tequilas.

A lot of sweet cooked agave on the nose with some slight vanilla cream, light pepper, spice, a pinch of smoke, definite alcohol, and anise. Vegetable and slight citrus. Taste is some heat, anise, sweet agave, vegative, minerally, with a pinch of ftuit. Heat onth the backend to the finish.

Another masterpiece from the Rosales family. Melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and spice lead the way before cooked agave takes over. Subtle oak notes present, but it doesn’t overpower the agave. I get raisins at the back end before a warm finish. Bravo

This is absolutely delicious. A nose of straw, earth, butter, smoke, and citrus. The sweetness is there with the smoke, but not overwhelming The taste is absolutely delicious with a thick with viscosity, that delicious smell of earth, straw, citrus, butter, and smoke. The earthen pit makes a beautiful cook, giving you a nice smoke, but not over whelming. The same with the sweetness. It's there, but it's not overwhelming. A smokey buttery barn.
