Tastes really floral and grapefruit-ty.

Killer. Delicious balance of agave and oak. I was thinking the oak would be stronger due to the length of aging, but they’ve done an amazing job of letting the agave shine through. Well balanced, and reasonably priced IMO. Bravo

Excellent Tequila with a more traditional flavor and strong agave taste and nose. More vegetal than sweet in flavor

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

This is crazy good. Aroma, taste, and finish can't be beat. My new favorite. If only I could afford it.

it has its own very unique powerful vanilla-herbal-minty-spicy-green-grass (hard-to-nail) kind of aroma and flavor. Sweet vanilla with a bouquet of flower.

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.
