Tasting Notes

"This is a refreshingly dry style of añejo that opts for woodiness and earth rather than sweetness. There's a peanuty flavor mixed in with the cooked agave notes along with a generous amount of sweet smoke and spice. Only a touch of vanilla and caramel come through. The agave-ness is fighting a little with the bourbon-cask influence, but the combination is still pulled off."
