Kudos for the presentation on this bottle. It is quite nice with the drawing of the stone mill and agave piña bottle stopper. It's eye catching and appealing. The tequila inside is nice but not fabulous. At first wiff the aroma is promising, with rich buttery notes followed by some herby underpinnings. The taste has nice bite and spiciness along with some pleasant hints of smoke and a good bit of sweetness. But the body and mouth feel are both too light for my personal taste in a reposado. My biggest objection to this tequila is the bitter finish. I loved the aroma, liked the initial flavor profile but then I got the hit of bitter on the back of the palate for which I did not care. This is a nice after work tequila and it's lightness makes it suitable for summer sipping.

Love the label, classic old tequila manufacturing scene and carved stopper. Rich buttery vanilla icing aroma with lots of herbal character underneath. Fairly light in body but silky. Lime zest flavors with a bitter herbal finish. Noticeable spicy/bitter wood tannins take over. Unique and smooth but the finish isn't my favorite.
