Tasted 10/31/14 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear amber color.
Aroma: Subtle balanced aroma of cooked agave, oak, and banana.
Initial Taste: Smooth peppery agave and oak, rich and well-aged taste.
Body: Medium-light body with a slight buttery mouthfeel. Nice balanced flavors.
Finish: A smooth, well-balanced medium long finish, with a nice peppery agave kick.
Price: The RRP is $49.99
Presentation: The bottle has an attractive design however, it has a plastic pour spout, which can be a real pain when it locks up.

There is not much information available about this tequila but I found it on sale so thought I’d give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised as it is nice sipping tequila. I wouldn’t pay the RRP of $49.99 but I highly recommend it if you can find it on sale. If the plastic pour spout won’t work properly recap the bottle, turn it upside down and give it a couple of hard shakes.

A not so well known solid tequila. I got a recommendation from a tequila drinker on this one and it didn't disappoint.

Aroma: Cooked agave, light citrus fruit and a light pepper note.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave flavor with some fruit and wood notes.
Body: Medium body that is somewhat oily. The agave, wood and pepper make for a nice combo.
Finish: A really nice and complex finish. The wood is present, but it ends with a nice long, smoky finish with very little burn.

I heard that this tequila is discontinued (death of the owner) and the discounted prices that I've seen on some websites make it a real steal. I bought mine for $24 a bottle. I'd suggest looking out for it and get a bottle for your collection. It's a good juice in a nice package.
