Vanilla, caramel, oak, borbon and earthy agave on the nose. The taste follows the nose pretty close in the order I listed with the earthy agave finish. This is a very nice Anejo! Lote 43-A

Tequila as it was meant to be. Notes of pepper, the agave nectar in my apartment, citrus, butterscotch, vanilla, caramel, Barrel spices, and chocolate. Has a similar taste profile to the Siete Leguas D’Antaño

it has its own very unique powerful vanilla-herbal-green-grass (hard-to-nail) kind of aroma and flavor.

I can't buy where I'm from so had to try while in California! So smooth and tasty but pricey. Worth it if you are looking for a high end tequila

Great example of an Anejo. Smooth and great flavor. Not too smokey and maybe a little sweet. If you like the other Fortaleza types, you should love this one. Great over rocks too.

of the 3, this is bold leader. the man of the house. but he wears custom suits, drives a jag, and loves the ladies. not tough. ... experienced and smart. big vanilla on the nose. sweet, inviting, not at all intimidating. this bottle should come with a bear - skin rug and a fire place. pepper, mint, honey and molasses splash around in a dance upon your taste buds, before giving you a sample of smoke before disappearing.
