"The Añejo offers a roasty, caramel nose, with brown sugar and hints of honey. The palate is quite earthy, with mineral, grassy and vegetal notes, a clear hogo-funkiness, and a small touch of smoke and oak. The finish is short and heavier on the sweet side, coming on a bit overly strong with lasting notes of butterscotch and brown sugar."
