Grover’s Evaluation:


Has a enjoyable lactic/tacky factor happening along with agave, mushroom, earth and cinnamon aromas. Aroma additionally shifts and adjustments within the glass over time because it opens up. Taste is of course candy cooked agave and a few minerals. End is brief and clear, the minerals are pronounced because the agave sweetness fades. Fairly satisfying and straightforward to drink.

The lactic/cheese aroma is there as a result of the cooked agave spent an excellent period of time uncovered to air earlier than they the had been added to the fermentation tank. I like this as a result of it’s an indication of a really pure course of, and one that may solely be achieved by way of a gradual, artisanal course of.

Anybody who thinks that every one tequila is identical wants to do that one.

I’m additionally thrilled to see that they put in a tahona and proceed to embrace old skool manufacturing strategies on the Cascahuín distillery. Bravo #cascahuinando!

Scarlet’s Evaluation:


Cooked agave and barely lactic aroma (which I like!), with a touch of inexperienced pepper. Tasty and naturally candy within the mouth, with a nice inexperienced pepper end.

Not overly sophisticated, however balanced and satisfying at 42% abv. I can’t wait to strive the second batch as a result of I wager will probably be even higher. Hopefully, it doesn’t lose its distinctive lactic character.

An thrilling new tahona product!

This tequila is so new that we don’t have any pricing or retailer location info outdoors of Mexico. After we get that data, we’ll add it to this story.

Grover’s Evaluation:


As a result of that is excessive proof (50% abv) I used a glass particularly designed for higher-proof spirits (the Stölzle “Jarrito” Tasting Glass.) As such, alcohol fumes didn’t get in the best way of my tasting expertise.

There’s positively quite a bit happening right here within the aroma. Identical to any good, pure spirit, don’t rush this one. It can proceed to open up within the glass and shock you.

At first, I detected white chocolate within the aroma. Then got here the cinnamon, barrel spice, and fruit. A short time longer I detected some jalapeño and citrus.

The flavour follows the aroma, however that is the place the oak and barrel spice grow to be far more apparent.

Has a thick and oily texture within the mouth, and the end lasts for a very long time. Thumbs up on this one.

You may solely get it on the La Cata tasting room in downtown Tequila, although. And it’s a single barrel, so it gained’t final lengthy. I like to recommend selecting one up quickly!

Scarlet’s Evaluation:


Advanced aromas of butterscotch, comote, dried fruit (apricot), and a contact of baking spices. Pure sweetness within the mouth, balanced by a dry end and medium mouthfeel.

Layered and attention-grabbing. Though it’s 50% abv, it doesn’t really feel “sizzling”, however it’s pungent. A special day sipper for certain.

You should purchase it for $140. on the La Cata Tequila Tasting Room in Tequila, Jalisco.

Grover’s Evaluation:


Whoa! Aroma on that is wonderful. Astonishingly, after 14 years in a barrel, there may be nonetheless cooked agave right here. Bravo!

Additionally within the aroma: dried fruit, vanilla, caramel, licorice and butterscotch. The agave, caramel, and dried fruit proceed within the taste. The end is the place the 50% abv makes itself identified. Lengthy and rewarding. This may be too excessive in alcohol for some, however simply nice for me.

After 14 years in a barrel, I’m shocked that there’s nonetheless agave left. One other masterpiece from Don Adolfo and his fastidiously cultivated crop of natural agaves!

Scarlet’s Evaluation:


What a deal with! It’s arduous to imagine that the aroma of candy, cooked, mature agave is the primary to hit my nostril after 14 years of ageing. The excessive proof (50% abv) helps deliver the agave ahead.

As well as, there are aromas of vanilla, dried fruit (cherry), and cinnamon. Candy agave and dry taste with a nice end tinged with hints of spices, like nutmeg.

A really complicated tequila that comes collectively elegantly, little question due partially to the standard of agaves used.

You may buy it online for $235. from Previous City Tequila.
