"The aroma for Tequila ArteNOM Selección de 1580 Blanco leans towards dark, leafy greens and green olives. On the palate which is just slightly slick, you'll find cooked celery, bay leaves, and unsweetened pineapple. As you continue to drink, the savoriness intensifies and you get grilled vegetables. Of course cocktails can be made with this, but the complexities in this blanco make it an ideal sipper."
