"This is a super fresh tasting reposado that packs a solid punch of herbal (grass, chives, green peppers, cilantro) notes and vivid chili spices. Some warmer spice such as cinnamon and nutmeg act to calm the palate somewhat as the fresh agave and grapefruit flavors emerge with a hint of vanilla and dark caramel. Finishes somewhat hot and drying, but with that herbal freshness carrying through to the end. "
