"First pass leaves little impression, but then just a touch of earthy aromas followed by lots of oakiness, which keeps pushing forward. The wood overpowers any agave sweetness or fruitiness, pushing it to the periphery and leaving a chewy mouthful of tequila left to age a very long time. Not a lot of pleasing sweetness and the finish is tannic and slightly bitter"
