Review #1698 – ArteNOM 1414 Reposado

The Schtick: Distilled twice on a copper pot still, ArteNOM hails from NOM 1414 – the clever name makes sense now – using well water and a roller mill + stone oven. No additives, 40% ABV – let’s get after it.

Review #1698 | Tequila Review #17

Distiller: Feliciano Vivanco y Asociados

Bottler: ArteNOM

Brand: ArteNOM

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Lots going on here – mossy sweetness, cocoa, cream cheese, vanilla bean, honey and melon. Sweet, but inviting.

Taste: Sweet on the palate, though the presence is thin. Cream, some cocoa, hint of caramel and cinnamon. No heat, a hint of lactic sweetness.

Finish: Medium in length, a hair sour. Nice agave character, some pepper.

Overall: Still not wildly complex, but there is at least enough going on to feel somewhat satisfied. Probably use this mostly for cocktails, and I think it would do ok there, but dont pick up this bottle thinking it will really wow you.

Thanks for reading!
