"The aroma wafting from the glass is much sweeter than the impression this tequila makes on the palate. Plenty of vanilla and caramel (like flan) coat the tongue, but there's a roasted agave note that cuts through the sweetness, and just enough herbal funk that keeps it from tasting too overoaked and sweet.
