"While this tequila gives off a vanilla and lemon scent in the glass, it's all about the butterscotch on the palate. It's sweet, creamy and rounded, with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and spicy cocoa flavors, balanced with a slightly saline and tart undertone. There's just a faint whiff of smoke in the final finish."
