110-proof (55% ABV) is the maximum alcohol content allowed by the standard for tequila. The appearence is bright crystal with intense silvery tones. The essential oil literally hangs from the glass. Despite its alcoholic content, its aromas are well defined: herbaceous raw agave, white pepper, citrus and mint. The taste is of intense cooked agave, slightly smoky, pepper, anise, cinnamon and apple. A very long and well accomplished finish. This is a tequila specially designed to be used in cocktails, as its intense aromas and flavors remain instead getting covered by the other ingredients. However, it is very gentle at the palate and can be sip and savored neat or on the rocks.
