A rich, nutty, clean sweetness. A special anejo, especially for cigar or whiskey drinkers

Oak and caramel …… dried fruit …. Barrel spices and some vanilla and agave on the back end some burn and slight minerality

Fantastic nose. Agave, almonds, minerals, light vanilla, butterscotch. But another patron falling flat on the palate after a great nose. Very short linger.

Had high Hopes for this one but falls short on the palate after a decent nose. Not very complex at all. Some agave and oak. A bit sweet then bitter. I still need to find the 1st duty free release.

Decent nose but not too complex on the palate. Agave, minerals, citrus, cinnamon... overall decent, but better stuff out there for the same price point.

I think this would be better at 45% ABV. Quite fruity, this has an cherry cough syrup element to it that isn't sweet or cloying. Finish is very dry, as in vermouth dry and happens on the tongue tip and center. Very easy to swallow with not a bit of roughness or burn.
