"With coaxing, the somewhat shy nose betrays a whiff of oak, a suggestions of cooked agave and a hint of pepper. Gaining confidence, the agave asserts itself on the palate but in a sweeter, cooked form; the pepper, meanwhile, retreats behind a veil that masks it more and more into a reasonably lingering finish. Not especially distinctive, but good as a mixer. "
