Sweet agave syrup is quite clear right from the start and it’s complemented by white pepper, bell pepper, dill, and roasted agave. On the palate Tijuana Sweet Heat is very sweet. The thick agave syrup is right there in the entry overshadowing the other flavors in the mix. It isn’t until the midpalate that the underlying tequila qualities start to emerge, with soft white pepper and cinnamon backed by roasted agave and agave syrup. The finish holds on to a touch of the spice with a very small pepper kick, but manages to lose a fair amount of the sweetness from the opening.
