Great nose, sweet, with a nice light touch of sourness and tartness. Taste is soft agave, cinnamon bun, and vanilla birthday cake with caramel pastry frosting. This is a very tasty repo, vaguely reminiscent of (dare I say it) Don Julio's towering 1942. Both exhibit somewhat similar sweet caramelly smoothnesses, but where the 1942 has fullness, depth, and complexity, Clase Azul veers toward soft dessert wine territory. (My only real criticism of it is its lack of any decent finish). I'm almost tempted to call it The Poor Man's 1942 except that the price points of the two aren't that far apart. If you're willing to plunk down for the Clase Azul, throw in a few extra bucks for the 1942 - you won't regret it.
