Cosecha 2010 42% ABV Nose: Faint oakiness. Freshly whittled cedar shavings. A touch of vanilla. Enticing potpourri of baking spices and candied citrus peel. Ripe berries and cherry fruitiness. Varied sweet dried fruit. Floral. A walk along a dusty country road aroma. Flavor: Pepper heat swathed in silky sweetness. Intense fruit notes and savory salinity performing a high wire balancing act. Medium body. The agave has not been masked by the 7 year, intricate barreling. It remains fresh and bright
Something special. Delicious notes of sweet cooked agave layered with vanilla, caramel, light spice, and great barrel notes
As far as aged Tequila this is damn near perfect, salted caramel and still some agave on the background which surprised me. This is a slam dunk for the Cognac or bourbon drinker in your life.
