This is higher ABV, so let it open up and breathe. Don’t rush it! When take your time it will reveal lots of interesting subtle aromas and flavors. The finish is moderately long. Some standard Fortaleza aromas are here, like butter and citrus. The sherry cask influence is a gentle touch, bringing some fresh fruit character to the aroma. The fruit and butter continues into the flavor. Price may be high, but with only 960 bottles available, it’s understandable coming from this legendary distillery.

Nose: The nosing took me by surprise. For whatever reason, my preconceived impression conjured up a vision of stodgy old men in silk smoking jackets, stiffly sipping sherry, with Chamber Music droning in the background… What I got was a playful, bouncy, lively aromas. You can dance to this tune. Fruity and spicy. Dense ripe fruit, dried fruit. Vanilla, nutmeg, oranges. Teases of flinty minerals and white peppercorns. Flavor: Salty. Thick. Ripe peach flesh. Poblano heat. Almond/vanilla creaminess. There is weight to the style without being heavy. Some oak and barrel spice evident on exhalation as it blooms on the finish. Dangerously easy to sip.

I enjoy a good Sherry, so I really enjoyed this tequila. This has that Fortaleza profile and some dried fruit and nutty flavors coming from the sherry cask. There is some nice agave sweetness and some heat. This would sip nice with Crepe Suzette or an cinnamon orange Panna Cotta

Tasted during Additive Free Week

Tasted in Mexico during Additive Free Week. What a treat! I knocked some points for price and that on the flavor my personal preference isn’t for sherry cask, but this one is done well. Nice and complex with that sherry poking through even though it doesn’t totally overpower. Drinks slightly hotter than the ABV.
