A friend bought this for me for my 40th. I was really disappointed. ON the nose I got tonnes of petroleum product with a little licorice and pepper and just a touch of caramel. The initial taste was similar to the nose but mucho Oak. The body was complex yet I didn't really enjoy it. Finish super long..... one of the longest I have yet experienced. It actually has a load of black licorice to finish. This has sat in my cupboard for over a year now and I continually avoid it so I really don't enjoy it that much. I looked at the price and it was over 100$ cdn, I can think of many tequilas I like more for the price.
Presentation is nice but nothing special. I actually like the blanco presentation the same for much cheaper ( and its one of my favorite blancos).
Aroma: Vegetal, wood, caramel, a bit of smoke, and some agave.
Initial taste: Sweet, wood and vanilla come through first.
Body: There's agave hiding in there somewhere. Some complex flavors of wood, vanilla, and spice.
Finish: It is definitely chocolate-like. The finish is the best part of this tequila, although it is a tad too hot for what I expected.
Interestingly enough, this is my least favorite showing from the Casa Noble line, although that's not saying much because their other tequilas are outstanding. Overall, I wouldn't mind having this again, but I wouldn't make a pilgrimage to find it.
