I used a medium size snifter for this tasting. For me, the nose was earthy and 100% Agave, lot's of Agave. My first sip kind of caught me off guard, it was much more intense than I expected. The hit of Agave is overwhelming. I am talking a pure, powerful Agave attack. If there were other flavors present, I did not pick them up on the first sipping. On my second sip, the Agave was still there in spades but far less aggressive. This time I also picked up very distinctly, spicy cinnamon nuances. I really liked that. After letting it set for about five minutes, I went back to it and this time the Agave was very prominent again, as was a kind of peppery, yet fruity flavor profile. I also enjoyed that very much. A few minutes later I finished off the shot and again the Agave is there and this time the cinnamon returned but almost no spiciness. This time the smoothness was very evident, as were hints of other fruits but nothing seemed distinct. The finish seems exceptionally long with a fair amount of warmth back down the throat, along with lingering hints of cinnamon. This is a great sipper IMHO and because of the intense up front agave flavor, it makes wonderful margaritas.
