"Los Amantes Reposado is very subtle with the aromatics tiptoeing onto the senses. Faint notes of vanilla, lemon, licorice root, mustard seeds and raisins entice the nose. It displays a little less subtlety on the palate. There you'll find flavors full of ripe grilled peaches, vanilla, coffee, charred oak, cinnamon and allspice. There is a mild tannic bitterness on the back of the palate and overall reminiscent of a reposado tequila."
