Tasting Notes

"Less bombastic than the brash reposado, Azuñia's añejo adds mature woody tones to its nose of spicy agave and green olive tapenade. Spice and wood surge on the palate, with white pepper giving way to black, cinnamon bark retaining its grip and spiced Mexican chocolate emerging on the lush finish. Sip while contemplating the contributions of Sor Juana to Mexican cuisine."
