Tasting Notes:

Very strong raspberry nose with agave underlying. There is still some tropical and spicy agave. Interesting. Very perfumey nose.
This has a very interesting flavor profile. I like that it retains a lot of agave character. There is an underlying backbone of spicy/tropical blanco tequila and the raspberry is pronounced but not overpowering. Interesting and competitively prices. Worth trying.
