Nose: Soft spicing wrapped around silky agave aromas. Cocoa, vanilla, and leather. A hint of spearmint. Some dough like notes. Trace cedar scent and a touch of sweet cider on the nose. Multifaceted nose. Flavors: A slight perfume/floral note accompanies the subtle fruitiness. Subdued spice and pepper heat. The vanilla and leather carry through from the aroma. Tasting this is more like a series of sensations, rather than the normal attempt at identifying individual elements. You ride pillowy clouds from one layer of impressions, that transitions to another layer of sensations, that seamlessly blends into the next... Finishes with all the finesses of a finely tuned symphony of strings and woodwinds. But sometimes I enjoy the crash of cymbals and some drama.

Spicy, herbal, and a little too hot for my personal preference when sipping neat. Give it a few minutes to breathe and the alcohol dissipates lending a more approachable softness. Underripe banana and citrus peel up front with a lasting sweetness on the finish.

Nose: Nice spicy nose marries nicely with the round ripe fruit aromas. Light oak, barrel spices and caramel. A sweet cider nuance. Flavor: This delivers an initial robust pop of pepper, cloves, cinnamon and anise, which is reined in by vanilla and caramel notes. This has an herbal note or two - perhaps cilantro.

Aroma was oak, whiskey, cooked sweet agave, caramel, a little bit herbal, sort of creamy and a pinch of smoke and vanilla. The taste was sweet agave, some pepper, fruity, honey, caramel, herbal and spice, with some heat at the front end. I really had no problem with this Repo as it was nice and somewhat silky, but with a noticeable bit of heat.
