A note about lot numbers and my tasting notes
Just as wine has vintages, each batch of commercially available agave distillate has a lot (lote in spanish) number. Depending on the production styles used by the brand, lots can be similar, or vary greatly in taste, texture and intensity. Some lot numbers are hand written while others are machine stamped. In each of my tastings, I will notate the lot numbers when possible. Besides lot numbers, I will include the NOM number (when possible), which is a specific number given to a distillery by the Mexican government that (usually...more on that later) indicates where the agave distillate was produced. Also, some of my tasting notes will be in depth, and some will be quick and to the point. This isn't a reflection of my thoughts of the brand, but rather my mood, time and attention allowed during the tasting.
