    good sense of vegetal agave juice, but has strong alcohol burn in the nose and taste. WRT Fortaleza, it's a little cleaner front to mid taste with more burn, and a bit more sweet towards the finish. Has a bit of earthy mineral notes in the late finish. It's like Fortaleza, but a bit cleaner and with less character and more burn.

    Butane (like a zippo wick), smoke, dry wood, grassy, earthy, also vaguely plastic straw (like when you chew on it) that said it’s interesting earthy smokey vegetal, and more sippable than my adjectives suggest. @ Gueros in Austin TX

    peppery vegetal agave nose, taste is clean boozy agave, pepper, metallic, plant fiber, slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall outstanding pure expression of distilled agave. Earthy pure, agave forward.

    boozy creme brulee caramel nose. Taste is like a dry, rum like hard to pin down strong spirit. Don't get much agave vegetal flavor or smoke, more like a grassy cognac. My first high end extra anejo, so my palate is still learning. Good but lacking in agave character/soul, amorphous generic strong rummy spirit flavor to me. I wish it would commit to being either more agave vegetal, or go more caramel sweet spirit, but it rides the fence, which makes it less interesting.

    boozy caramel vanilla sherry nose. Taste: a bit of agave veg just after initial tongue hit, melting into undifferentiated caramel citrus vanilla strong spirit flavor. Finish is smooth. Overall, refined to the point of being like a cognac with a bit of a peppery smokey edge, but almost too smooth, missing some earthy agave character to stay true to tequila spirit.

    Nice smokiness, some vegital and pepper flavor and bit of oiliness, but finishes without harshness. This one stays true to its agave soul, not trying to filter it down too much, keeping smokey earthy character, but smooth finish.
