El Ultimo Agave Tequila Blanco

So you know i am in on all the best deals in Spirits-- right... This Blanco is creamy with leading aromas of agave, corriander, citrus pith, layers of clean stone and a mild earthiness. The flavors initially are dry and layered: crisp agave tones buttressed by the stony soil that reared them set in a mildly oily mouth-feel that evolve to include citrus, spice and hints of cocoa. Incredibly balanced, with a hint of bitterness articulating towards earthiness and a finish that is smooth with a slight piquant mineral-rich fade showing citrus resolving to a spicy linger. This blanco is a steal!! Perfect for any get together where quality and quantity both play a part in the equation.

i am having some ... a new drink i made up this evening-- not super balanced or sassy looking, but fun boozing!!! i call it

The Lazy Ass Bastard (The lab for short...)

P.S. Don't hate on me because of my super cool Double Rocks Glass (A&W Mini Mug- hell yeah!); and the bottle is a 1.75 that i just opened 3 drinks ago!!>!
