Crystalline and pure. Lots of pepper, tangy and vegetal aspects in the opening whiffs; aeration brings added fragrances such as textile fiber, sage, dill and pickle brine. Entry is remarkably salty, fresh and vivid, showing good acidity; midpalate is long, nicely viscous, almost fat and rich, with green vegetable background flavors. Finishes salty, more vegetal than peppery and almost nutty.

This pale gold reposado will spruce up margaritas and other cocktails. It’s sweet, smooth and honeyed, with just the right amount of jalapeño tingle and a hint of creamy citrus on the exit.
