I was hoping for a lot more from this tequila than what I actually got. This is an average tequila in an exquisite bottle.
There is almost no nose to be found here. Usually I open a bottle and it engrosses the room, but with this one, you really need to search for a slight hint of fragrance. There are is a minor scent of vanilla, but mostly iodine and medicine. With this, I was worried that my bottle might have been spoiled, but there is no metallic taste to it.
It enters very sharply giving a faint hint of agave, vanilla and weak tropical fruit. The alcohol heat overpowers any sign of anything else. I was surprised with how light bodied and thin it feels in my mouth. It’s a very straight forward taste with no complexity. For me, I found that the finish is just an acute 1 minute burn followed by a dry mouth and throat.
My friends enjoy this tequila as shots, and it is great for mixing.
With it straight up for drinking, I won’t be using it for enjoying quiet moments of contemplation.
