90–95 pts.Wine Enthusiast: November 15, 2004
The initial aroma is of black pepper and steamed broccoli. Following aeration, a bouquet of succulent scents of Brazil nuts, egg cream and light oak resin appear. An oily flavor of bacon is apparent at palate entry; at midpalate the pepper returns with added tastes of spinach, sage and butter. Finishes elegantly yet zestily as the pepper comes to the fore.
86 pts.Wine Enthusiast: July, 1999
Gold, with on orange-copper cast. Moderately full-bodied. Figs, wet stone, dried grasses. Bold, round texture. Smooth, broad feel with deep flavors and a pungent backdrop of earthy nuances. Nice expanding warmth on the rich finish.

The pale/gold color is pretty and impeccably pure; the first two minutes of inhaling focus on the presence of black pepper and steamed broccoli — six minutes later, the aroma turns into a bouquet as lovely, succulent scents of Brazil nuts, egg cream and light oak resin make for happy sniffing; the palate entry keys on an oily flavor of bacon — at midpalate, the pepper returns with added tastes of spinach, sage and butter; finishes elegantly yet zestily as the pepper comes to the forefront.

The label explains this is a blend of “anejo and other fine tequilas.” It has a deep gold color and a slightly peppery nose with subtle hints of green wood, all set on a backdrop of pure caramel. The medium body was silky smooth and the palate very similar to the nose-hints of green vegetal notes, a few sharp darts of white pepper, and a sweet backdrop. The finish was smooth, warm and sweet. This gentle spirit is a good introduction to tequila as a category.
