the nose is Rich with baking spices and is floral. also find some vanilla and light oakiness to it. the taste started with a creamy mouthfeel and a rich taste of cooked agave followed by slight fruitiness with pear and cherries detected and then a hint of vanilla and chocolate/butterscotch. the heat carries it through on the finish with a slight honey sweetness. this is a very enjoyable Reposado!

Tastes like fermented pickle juice. Smells like it too. Finish is ok. Not a tequila for me. Very earthy.
