Purchased March/2010, paid $60 online. Sampled from a 6oz shot glass, neat. Color is light amber, leaves fast legs, minimal tears. NOM-1079 has some of my favorite tequila brands and that is why I did not hesitate to buy. The bottle is a liability at best, this is a marketing gig and they blew it, nothing about the bottle sets it apart. The nose is light, agave/caramel/butterscotch and a minimal floral wiff. Let this tequila breath for a bit, the nose will subtly change in character. Medium mouth feel, complex, some whiskey comes through, holds very well. Finish is a bit muted, very smooth, minimal heat but numbing will slowly build on the tongue and gums if you drink uninterrupted. It dissipates quickly leaving an oak tinge. There is a lot going on with every sip, its a work of art that you taste. Price maybe the only draw back. The more I have the better I like it. Its underwhelming at first but grows on you... The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, odd but true. I'll buy again.
