"This lightly aged spirit still allows the flavors of the cooked agave to do their thing, although it's very heavy on the oak accents. Some cola spices (think allspice, nutmeg) come through with light caramel and vanilla with a fruity orange zest finish. Would mix well in cocktails, especially highballs. "
