Tasting Notes

"The bouquet is elegant, with gentle oak, vanilla and cooked agave notes along with a bit of white pepper, canned peach, and jasmine. On the palate, a big wave of smoke comes first, crashing onto the palate, As the smoke clears, cooked agave, white pepper, oak and cinnamon appear before a finish that features a vegetal, chile pepper-note, along with a bit of campfire smoke, a slight earthiness and more cooked agave."
