Tasting Notes

"The nose reveals some classic tequila notes with vegetal agave qualities; while still distinct, they are muddled a little bit with the oak. After a few minutes, buttery turnips becomes the dominant aroma. The palate shows a medium-bodied tequila with some sweet wood notes mingling with the agave. On the back palate, the tequila shows vanilla and magnolia flavors. The finish is long and sweet."
