Cask TypeEx-Bourbon American White Oak and Ex-cognac French Limousin Oak
"This is a super dry, earthy and smoky style of reposado. Cooked agave and roasted green pepper combines with pine needle, woodsy botanicals, grapefruit zest, and rosemary. Soft sweetness shows up in the form of cooked berries, deep caramel, and cappuccino to balance it out nicely toward the finish and save it from being too dry. "
