Tasting Notes

"The grooved barrels have certainly influenced the aroma with oak and char smoke coming through along with dried herbs and toasted nuts. The tequila is medium full and shows the peppery agave notes that are found in Herradura tequila. The aftertaste is earthy and bittersweet and the tequila feels warm in your chest.  The fact that these are new barrels rather than used bourbon allows the tequila to retain the peppery and herbal quality in the tequila.  "
