The most recent tequila distillery to leap on the cristalino craze is Avion, which formally drops this into its outsized Reserva Vary. Avion’s Cristalino is a mix of añejo and additional añejo tequilas that’s then double charcoal filtered to clear. Let’s give it a whirl.

Initially, the nostril is decidedly on the inexperienced aspect, with peppery agave taking the lead in opposition to an finally rising backdrop of butterscotch and vanilla, a form of better of each worlds within the tequila house. The palate flips the expertise round properly, with creamy vanilla and notes of cinnamon buns giving the assault some particular sweetness. There’s Mexican chocolate, a layer of duskier spice — not fairly cloves however allspice, maybe — and a end of flippantly honeyed graham crackers and one other pinch of cinnamon — which seems to be an Avion trademark.

In the end this tequila softens up properly, and whereas it lacks a few of the complexity of the spectacular Avion 44, it finally ends up partaking the senses splendidly following a barely rocky assault.

The jury’s nonetheless out on whether or not cristalino is a gimmick — significantly given the costs — however right here Avion makes case for why it ought to stick round.

80 proof.
