3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tequila aged 2012 version. Bottle from Tipples poured 8/1/14. Tequila usually bad news for me so hoping for the best. Pours pitch black with a massive dark brown head that mushrooms out of the glass. Aroma of chocolate, CocaCola or Pepsi (really like a soda smell), roast, vanilla, some very interesting spice notes like ginger snaps, not a lot of specific tequila characteristics which is OK by me. Roast up front with lightly sweet cocoa, some graham cracker and ginger snap spice, and a finish of funky tequila like booze. I donít do well with tequila so Iím hypersensitive to this, but I imagine itís no big deal for others. A really bitter boozy spice cocoa powder note that is unpleasant to me on the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this is pretty solid, but not what I was expecting at all. Wish I chose a better time for this when I was in the mood for an end of the night sipper.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
375mL bottle, pours black with a medium light brown head. Aroma brings out lots of tequila, burnt roasted malt and alcohol. Flavour brings out a lot of tequila, surprisingly in a tasteful amount, with a little residual roast, and slight alcohol. Very tequila dominated, but I can somehow drink this no problem. Not bad at all, but only drinkable in small amounts.
