Yum. A wonderful nose of cooked agave with subtle hints of fruit and spice with just a whisp of butterscotch. It reminds me of older NOM 1079 products - maybe it's the tahona. The taste is less complex than the nose, but still very pleasant - mostly cooked agave and that little bit of butterscotch still present, and maybe a floral aspect coming through. There is little-to-no oak present for me, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The body has a medium weight with nice mouth feel and coating. It has a well-balanced finish of medium heat and duration, with a lingering aftertaste of somewhat raw agave, but there is still the cooked flavor as well, so again, well-balanced.

This is a very nice tequila for both new and experienced sippers alike. It lets the agave shine through so that newbies can develop that recognition, but it also has enough complexity for seasoned sippers to get some interesting notes to ponder. There is a great price point on this juice - not cheap, but a good value under $50 for what you get, and it is normally cheaper than that.
