"The nose is full of bright, baked agave notes with gentle fresh green herbs. The tequila feels slick on the palate with the cooked agave flavors fading to the background. The mid-palate fades pretty quickly leaving you with a bittersweet finish with earthy tones. Not terribly complex, but no off-putting flavors. Shoot or mix for best results."
