Raided Score: 80 Publication: Tequila Raiders Excerpt: Thin on the palate. Not a ton going on here, a bit of cream, honey, light pepper and some rising bread. Pretty devoid of complexity, though it goes down easy with no perceptible ethanol. Read Full Review Raided Score: 86 Publication: Tastings Excerpt: Interesting aromas and flavors of cocoa-dusted butter roasted pecans, ovaltine and mocha, waxed cedar, moss and clay, and stove-roasted peppers. An interesting, very savory, green, and peppery Tequila for rich, savory cocktails.

Aged for 18 months and then filtered to remove color, Lunazul Primero is a new release that aims to hopefully jump on the Cristilano bandwagon - a new hot trend in agave.
Sweet agave on the nose, citrus like lemon and orange. Honey, a bit of pepper, some light cream and funk.
Thin on the palate. Not a ton going on here, a bit of cream, honey, light pepper and some rising bread. Pretty devoid of complexity, though it goes down easy with no perceptible ethanol.
Short finish, again not a ton happening. Light agave character, some cream and pepper, then it’s gone.
All in all, while there are no major flaws here, there’s so little tequila character after filtering that this makes for a pretty unremarkable pour.
