Thinner letter metal label. Cooked agave, minty butter, bubble yum, mango, citrus, white pepper... tasty AF.

Big, raw agave on the nose. Fresh rainfall, light hint of apple. Soft on the entry, anise and white pepper. Medium complexity, and short finish.

This bottle dated May 2002 is in perfect shape with good fill level and intact cork. With green pepper and agave on the nose, the entry is slightly viscous and with some alcohol. This tastes as if new and not 15 years old. Some bitterness on the finish holds this back from an 89 or 90. Reminds me of green apples.

Aroma: Very strong raw agave notes. It's a little harsh (medicinal) but not many other aroma notes. Flavor: Much like the aroma the overwhelming note is raw agave. But, the flavor is a little more complex. There's a slight anise note as well as a tart grape note on the finish (reminds me of wine).

Raw agave dominates the aroma with a slight medicinal undertone. Strong, spicy flavor with signs of cinnamon but like the aroma dominated by agave. Long, warm finish with slight spice flavors.
