Amazing tequila. Mainly cooked agave and olive with some citrus on the nose. Taste is more of those same notes with some floral characteristics and a little sweetness and vanilla as well. Crisp and clean finish with a little alcohol but incredibly smooth for the proof. Easily the best I have had and the template for what a blanco should be like in my humble opinion. A fantastic offering from the hands down best producer!!!

Less spice and herbal notes, so for me a bit easier on the the palate than other high proof blancos. More cooked agave and earth — and warmth — which comes through more clearly compared to the clean vegetal notes of 40 abv Forta. Incomparable!
