Review #1996 | Tequila Review #32

Distiller: Varo Destileria

Bottler: Varo Destileria

Brand: Codigo


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Roasty agave, some vanilla. Sweet pear, a bit of cream, and a hint of stone and minerality. Light clay, sweet fruitiness.

Taste: Oak is present here, but well enough integrated. A bit of cocoa, caramel, roasty vanilla bean and a touch of cinnamon and tannin. Light mouthfeel, no real heat.

Finish: Medium finish that’s dry, a bit on the fruity side. Caramel, vanilla, more roasted agave notes and a touch of oak.

Overall: Overall, it’s not bad. It won’t best some of the really crazy Anejo’s or extra Anejo’s out there, but it’s just fine.

Thanks for reading!
