GSN’s Remarks: Gentle agave nostril punctuated with a faint smokey haze. Very clean with an nearly creamy entry, vanilla being the dominant word. Altogether, it’s paying homage to a tequila cream liqueur, minus the precise cream. Fairly fascinating, very tasty and simply approachable.

Additionally of word is the bottle design, which is without doubt one of the most unusual and enticing items we’ve seen. GSN Score: A
