I really like the blanco, but did not care for the repo and the direction it was heading, but I'll keep an open mind for the anejo.

The nose is not very pleasant IMO. I get mostly vinegar and sourness in general. I don't mind a bit of olive or brine in my tequila, but this does not hit that mark for me. I do get some semblance of oak, but it's kind of like rotten or fungus infested oak. I can detect *some* cooked agave in the background.

The taste is better than the nose. There is more agave coming through for me, with some spice added. There is still bitterness and slight vinegar, but much less of it. I detect an oak presence, but it is atypical - not sure if there is something different about their barrels and how they use or prepare them, but it's just a bit off for me. The body has a medium weight - a little light for an anejo.

The finish is pretty balanced, but not exceptional in any way. The strange oak taste continues, but I do admit that the finish becomes a little better as you drink more.

The nose kind of kills this from the beginning for me, although the taste and finish are better than the nose. Again, I like the blanco quite a bit, so this is just an example of good unaged juice getting tweaked the wrong way during the aging process. I like the look of the bottle, although it might be difficult to grip around the middle one-handed for small hands.

Every palate is different, so while this one might not be my favorite, I would still not hesitate to recommend it to someone who may favor a diffrent flavor profile than I would.

Aroma: A nice agave and caramel nose along with a bit of earth and olive.
Body: Medium body and the sweetness fades away into more earthy and peppery notes.
Finish: A nice long finish of agave, chocolate and pepper that stays on the tongue for a while.

This is a definite sipper for those who really like the peppery notes of a blanco and want to sip with some dark chocolate. While dark chocolate isn't may favorite thing, this tequila might be at the top of the list for someone who like their tequila a bit more earthy with a hint of bitter than those who like the ultra sweet brands.

The Tierras presentation is nice and not too fancy. I'd still recommend this to any tequila drinker. It's got great character and is very smooth.
