"A slight cinnamon note greets you and the vegetal characteristic is on the low side and more reminiscent of nopalitos (prickly pear cactus pads). There's more of a sweet vanilla note which continues on the palate. These flavors, however, are short-lived as the finish comes quickly with a dry and bitter profile. There isn't much sweetness or depth to the product; perhaps this could benefit for a bit more time in barrel."
