My new favorite reposado! Rich aroma full of agave, ripe fruits, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and wheaty beer. The taste is similar with cooked agave, caramel, toffee, black pepper, pear, apricot and light cider. The texture is full and creamy with a small amount of sourness from the beer barrels. The finish is a bit more sour, and has stronger notes of vanilla, toffee and oak. This is great tequila that I was lucky enough to be able to find the last bottle at my local liquor store. I suggest everyone try and do the same because this stuff is special.

Fortaleza Winter Blend 2020 The nose is great! I can smell the American and French oak barrels while still detecting the beer barrel. It’s a very complex nose for a Reposado. I get the sweetness from the French Oak and the musty whiskey note from American Oak and then a sourness from the beer barrel. Don’t worry the cooked agave still punches through. I taste sweet agave and then I get some nice pepper on the mid-palette thanks to the higher ABV. On the back end comes the French oak sweetness that turns to a dry note thanks to the beer barrel. There’s also some sourness that dances around on the finish. This is an excellent reposado! Thank you Fortaleza!

I love it a lot, and I love the profile od the triple barreling. I prefer it by a hair over the 2019

Nose is malted agave, a bit of yeast and cider. Oak notes on entry along with cider, creamy agave custard and a serious mid tongue buzz from the 46 %. Finish is well balanced and has natural sweetness that fades to some citrus and tart notes from the beer barrel finishing.

Nose: 2020 Winter Blend’s beer cask lineage shows up immediately upon pouring, with a sparking cider aroma and a sweet malty note. There are a myriad of backup aromas. Cinnamon, orange blossoms, almond paste, candied citron, and a dash of butterscotch. Also a whiff of sharp minerals and damp earth. A fresh feel about this one. Flavor: Zingy barrel spice and white pepper marrying nicely with ripe round fruitiness, and butterscotch/toffee undercurrents. Dried fruits, apricot and cherry?, peeking through. The finish brings additional vanilla, citrus, molasses and some leather to the show.

Aromas of vanilla, butterscotch, apricot, cinnamon and slight cider from the beer barrel. Nice, think mouthfeel with cooked agave, slight molasses and effervescent finish from cider note.

It’s excellent. I enjoyed the 2019 Winter Blend more. I didn’t love the finish. If I’m honest I enjoy stock Fortaleza more and so the Value and Finish scores are what bring my overall rating down a bit. I understand why we pay up for special releases, but sometimes I’m not sure it’s worth the effort and expense vs every day fantastic product like Fortaleza’s stock bottles.

Really like this years blend, a little lighter and less spice than the 19, Showing more pleasant agave flavors. Great repo blended from three different barrels

There’s so much going on in this tequila. Cooked agave,vanilla, oak. The taste is great agave, vanilla and I get a slight fruitiness with a medium heat.

aroma: smells strongly of agave, hint of citrus, some oak, some sort of spice flavor: so much heat, spice, some smoke, like BBQ agave finish: lingers, maintains a tingle. retains a little heat and agave

I really enjoy this repo. It's very different due to aging in beer barrels. The hops really shines through.

So excited to get a bottle! Different than 2919 in a good way. It seems a little more balanced than 2019. Whereas 2019 is sweet and smooth 2020 is more bold and flavorful. Aroma is great. Taste is off the charts with flavor. Finish is incredible as well. I hope Fortaleza keeps doing these one offs. Tequila is supposed to be fun. This is wonderful. A good finish to 2020.

Complex nose that fires up a multitude of aromas through the nostrils. Sipping is like sneaking a sweet mint cookie on the platter left for Santa warming the esophagus. Like my trip to Thailand in 2012, leaves a lingering spice on the tongue.

I’m getting cider, cinnamon, vanilla, agave, pears, cherry, and hay on the nose. Taste agave, caramel, cider, cherry, flowers, white pepper, leather, and a surprising effervescence on the finish.

Light amber color in the glass. Aromas of vanilla, cider and alcohol (probably because I just opened the bottle). Flavor of cooked agave and caramel. The finish does have that hint of effervescence from the beer. No burn even at cask strength of 46%.
