From a 1530 Project tasting kit. More fruit on the nose than the usual Fortaleza Reposado this is presented at just above still strength. A nice bite from the higher ABV on entry as well as agave spice and pepper. I like it, but much of the Fortaleza profile is changed for this. I would like to see a Still Strength Reposado added to the line as well as the special WB releases to be able to compare and contrast.

Blessed to receive a sample from TequilaMockingbird. On the nose, Fruit, cinnamon, cooked agave, in that order. Vanilla and caramel, some butterscotch. Something like a sweet cream or butter. A tiny bit if that salinity/brineyness. Very nice nose. Sweet tobacco in the empty glass. On the palate, Nothing tells me this is 46%, goes down like a dream. Silky, oily mouthfeel. Lots of sweet, cooked agave up front, some nice fruity notes and that caramel and butterscotch is coming through nicely. I’m getting those baking spices, a soft but present vanilla, the vanilla bean specifically. This is definitely sweeter and spicier than the standard Reposado. Overall. Very good, and I’m super thrilled to have been given a sample. This is an exceptional offering from Fortaleza but in my opinion, it doesn’t warrant almost 3x the price of the repo or the still strength. At $75-90, maybe even up to $100-110, I’d comfortably try to add a couple bottles to my collection, but at $130 bare minimum, it’s a little tough. Still, it really is delicious and if you don’t share my perspective on value, it’s truly delicious.

The initial aroma is very similar to the Fortaleza Reposado, which is a blend of sweet cooked agave, a citrusy minerality, and light oak with vanilla. The flavor showcases the higher proof, similar to the Still Strength, but with an added infusion of light vanilla sweetness and a buttery consistency. The finish consists of a delicious burst of vegetal and citrus flavors, combined with a balanced agave and vanilla sweetness that lingers on the palate afterwards. Expensive, but it’s still one of the best reposados money can buy.

Well so far of the 3 version still love the 2019 one. Dont get me wrong is good but for me I can buy something else better for my taste at that price. Well made to keep those flavor anything coming from this destilery is well made.

The nose is creamy cooked agave. It’s fruity and floral with a slight acidic note. I also get hints of strawberries which I’ve never detected in a tequila before. The agave and alcohol present themselves first. I then get the sweet notes from the French oak and some fruity acidic notes from the Marsala wine influence. There’s a nice white pepper in the background from the higher proof. The price kept it from a 90 rating.

Ethanol on the nose… slight tart sweetness… you can taste the Marsala notes some heat from the 92 proof… gets better as it opens up

Finding this bottle in a retail store is running $150 to $300. Sorry, I love everything Fortaleza, but they have created something so hyped up, the cost doesn’t match the Reposado tequila. Very nice, balanced but I would drink all their other expressions first. Salud

I taste agave, pepper, clove, cinnamon, honey, and citrus. The cask proof wakes you up, with a fairly long finish that is both dry and tingles all over—like a brisk winter night. I was worried the Marsala cask would impart too much sweetness—and it does deliver a great nose, but on taste it leans more dry. It’s delicious!

Nose before swirling: Red wine, melted butter, agave, and spice mix consisting of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and confectioners sugar. A faint whiff of oak sawdust. Nose post swirl: Vanilla bean, light colored tree fruit and prominent velvety agave. A slightly acidic snap to the aroma. Roasted filberts. Ripe darker colored fruit scents emerge and marry/integrate with the Marsala notes making for a warm round impression. I’m crazy about the nose on this. Flavor: Spicy, oily and viscous - with piercing pepper and a reminder that there is extra ethanol present. You can feel the heat as it journeys through the body. Still abundant fruit and agave - but more a background player to the pepper and cinnamon red hot spice. A tiny bit of bitters. Finish: All elements settle into place by the time you get to the finish. The Marsala wine barreling, which I had feared might dominate the profile - did not. I love what the fertile minds at Fortaleza bring to us each November. Thanks.

Excellent. Good aromas. Flavors had me thinking of autumn. Fruit with long finish. Part of the 1530 sampler. Would be a pleasure to have again. I’m excluding the pricing factor because it was all over.

The Marsala barrel influence adds depth, fruit, and a tint of sweetness both on the nose and palate. Done vanilla and caramel when you sit there long enough, but a nice agave and cinnamon backbone. I could drink this all day long. I paid an average of $130 for my 4 bottles, so not quite a bargain, but in these times, higher prices are becoming the norm for aged products. One of my favorite pours ever!

I love the minerality on this variation and finishing it in wine casks adds a grape flavor and aroma that is pleasant. Not sure I like it as much as other winter blends but definitely with a try.

On the nose, Vanilla, a little bit of cherry, cinnamon, hints of pepper and caramel, cooked agave. On the palate, wow, super well rounded mouth feel, a touch of sweet vanilla, agave. Smooth finish with caramel, red fruit and spices. Long finish.

I ordered this through a local retailer in Tucson. $98 tax includ. This would be considered average cost for an excellent tequila in Az. Truly delicious. Lots of complexity. Cooked agave through out. Definitely get that Marsala barrel taste in the middle and slight aromas up front. The finish is spicy and long. stays warm in thw back of rhe toung & throat.

Cracked the Fortaleza Winterblend, as I was impatient and couldn’t wait to try it. Used a Neat glass and let it open up for 20-30 min. I love the nose. I smell sweet cooked agave, butter, some fruit and spice. It definitely entices me and can’t wait to get it rolling over my tongue. Taste is outstanding in my opinion. I really like the flavor and mouth feel. Definitely hits you first with cooked agave. I taste some oak, and butter with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Finishes with spice and black pepper. I really like the finish and this reposado makes me want to drink it all night. Price takes some points off for value. However, this tequila is delicious. One bottle isn’t enough! I want more….

Aroma- agave, oak, lime, vanilla (similar to the standard repo) Taste-creamy spiced cooled agave (an enhanced version of the standard repo) Finish- agave and citrus, strong bite like the still strength This is a great tequila, but it is overpriced due to being so limited. Worth it though to get a still strength repo.

Such a wonderful product! It’s similar to the regular Reposado from Fortaleza but with some great notes of light wine and sweat oak. Love the gentle vanilla and butter as well. It’s a great product if you can find it! Though I would be hard pressed to pay much more than MSRP for it

High-proof blend (46.3% ABV) with barrel-aged influences of American oak and used Marsala wine French oak barrels. NOSE: sweet agave forward, lots of minerality, some vanilla, oakiness, anise, soft citrus, grass. MOUTH: similar to NOSE, good but muted mouth feel, love the extra level of intensity the higher-proof gives to the flavor profile. Has a touch of salty spiciness, perhaps influenced by the Masala wine barrels? Fruity, but not overbearingly so on the initial taste, but it disappears quickly, only to return in the finish.

This is different. Agave right into a red wine like fruitiness. (Grapes/cherries). The more you drink the best it get.
