I've been intrigued by the Frida Kahlo line for quite some time, but never had the opportunity to try it until recently. Since the price goes up by $10 a bottle as the ages advance, I thought it would be best to start off with the blanco to taste the base juice.

Aroma: Nice grassy agave smell with hints of pine, citrus and mint.
Initial Taste: Grassy agave. Very crisp and pleasant.
Body: Medium-thin body. This is very agave forward. The complimentary flavors (grassy notes and mint) are light, but work very well to make it unique.
Finish: A very easy finish with a fairly short duration. There's a nice pepper kick along with mint.

This is a pretty good tequila. It's not the best I've ever had, but I think that new and seasoned tequila drinkers alike will both enjoy this one. For the price, I think that it's just good enough for me to want to get the reposado and anejo. Pretty nice work from NOM 1465.
