Clear slivery straw color. Aromas and flavors of tomato water, caramel chews, melon agua fresca, tobacco, and candied orange peel with a round, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a peppery, interesting, medium-length finish displaying shades of caramelized banana and candied seeds finish. A nicely balanced Cristalino with notes of bright fruit and toasty barrel for a wide range of cocktail possibilities.

Cristalino tequilas are barrel-aged tequilas, usually añejos, that have been stripped of color. They tend to have rounder, more creamy aromas and flavors than blancos and also softer acidity and agave notes. They are designed for sipping.
