Tasted out of a reidel glass. A friend of a friend brought this to a party saying his friend started this tequila company. Im always ready to try a new tequila. I admit, I am very anti gimmicks when it comes to tequila. I prefer to see its culture and history embraced in its presentation. I feel as if the gimmicks are nothing more than a mockery of tequila itself. Nevertheless, its a decent tequila, nothing special to report. Maybe I just cant get over its presentation. But it definitely doesnt taste like other brands out of this distillery.

Aroma: A faint but detectable nose of berry and agave.
Initial taste: A thin mouth feel, with a slight alcohol burn, and slightly bitter upon entry. Initial taste of berry.
Body: A light agave body with little depth.
Finish: A short agave lingering with no heat.

Again, not the worst by any means, but not memorable.

A fun new brand of tequila. The bottle and stopper are awesome and although they are not "authentic" looking, they look good on a bar and draw comments often. The juice inside...

Aroma: Sweet agave with hint of citrus and grass. A really nice blanco nose.
Initial Taste: A really nice sweet agave entry with a little bit of citrus and pepper. A fairly light scent, but very nice overall.
Body: Medium-Light Body, not oily at all. The flavors from the initial taste remain and a hint of earth comes in as well. A really nice mix of flavors that are complex and taste a bit different with every sip.
Finish: Medium length finish and it's light tasting, but stays with you nicely. Sweet agave and white pepper flavor stay with you nicely and at the very end you get a nice earth finish with just a light bitterness and ZERO alcohol burn.

This is a very nice tequila. True agave flavors and just a little complexity in flavors to differentiate itself from competitors with a nice finish. Is this tequila "To Die For" like they say...not quite. But it's a darn nice juice in a very cool package.
