This is an exquisite tequila, soft yet bold - a tequila that, happily, requires some commitment in getting to know it. The nose, like its colour, is deep and dark: vanilla, oak, sour fruit, black chocolate, and agave. Body is rich and oily. It glides over the tongue, leaving in its wake sharp notes of smoky wood, nutty fruit, dark spice, earthy agave, and more bittersweet chocolate. But it's the finish, that Casa Noble finish, that affirms the beauty of this tequila: big and bitey despite its 5 year rest. A lovely pepper spice and light heat slowly evolve into a lengthy after-finish of warm tart sweetness. This is a refined and amazing tequila.
