"The wood notes are light on the nose with traces of vanilla and cinnamon mixed in with the cooked agave notes. Like the silver, there's an oily feel to the palate and there are enough agave flavors present upon tasting. However, there's a bitter old oak flavor that overwhelms the finish making for an unpleasant lasting impression. "
