Distiller: Tequila San Matias de Jalisco
ABV: 40% ABV
Nose: Sweet vanilla, honey, cream. Faint agave character, some pepper and papaya. Pretty bourbony with a hint of tequila character.
Taste: Thin on the palate, sweet cream and agave with pepper and a faint bitterness. Really interesting, especially how much pepper and mineral bitterness there is. ABV feels alright, still thin but not drinking hot at all, so thats nice.
Finish: Short, sweet and oaky, fairly one noted here. Not a ton going on, and a hint of that bitterness remains.
Overall: Overall, not bad, but it isnt performing very well, and there is far better reposado in this price range if you can get over the Buffalo Trace appeal.
