Tasting Notes

"The agave sweetness can be detected from the moment the tequila is poured into your glass. Digging a bit deeper you'll find a host of barrel spices and dried herbs. There's even a bit of fresh peppermint. The mouthfeel is on the light side and again, it is the barrel that makes the greatest impression. The sweet agave, however, does a fine job balancing the spice. The finish is lengthy and peppery with hints of coconut. Less dessert-y and rich then you might expect."
