Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Vibrant. Citrusy and salty on the nose, with a touch of vanilla in the background. In the mouth, flavors are of burnt orange and sweet spices. Dry, with plenty of richness and slightly grainy texture. Lingers long in the mouth. Initial aroma of wax paper and black pepper; aeration stimulates scents of asparagus, broccoli, new leather and herbal butter. The palate entry is spicy and semisweet; the midpalate adds subtle tastes of butter, steamed green vegetables, white rice and light toffee. Finishes satiny smooth and appealingly spicy. A tour de force in balance and harmony.

This luxury tequila is crafted from handpicked agave and triple distilled for the best depth of flavor, character and unparalleled smoothness. After distillation, the spirit is aged for three years in French single-oak barrels before being bottled in unique hand-blown crystal bottles with agave plants blown into the bottom of the glass. In this case, luxury may be an understatement.
In the glass, look for a warm and full-bodied spirit with a pale straw color. You’ll pick up notes of sweet honey and dried flowers on the nose, and flavors of honey, toast, peppery spice, and prune on the tongue.
