My absolute favorite tequila. Everyone has their own certain preference for a style of tequila. Fortaleza is the perfect fit for my style.

Aromas of Carmel with hints of vanilla, flavors of burnt maguey and brown sugar, finishes with hints of smoke with a light hotness.

Aroma : Cooked agave, vanilla, caramel. Some oakiness along with butter and olives. Taste : Full bodied, oily and complex with plenty of agave for an Añejo, vanilla and caramel, more oak and butter and olives. I also got some fruity/peach notes and butterscotch. Finish : Long lasting and slightly spicy, and prolongs butter, butterscotch, and oak notes. This is a good balance of sweet and spicy, and it's very complex. I've been away the past 2 weeks, and this was a great tequila to have after so long. I'm stocked on many more tequilas so I definitely hope they measure up to this.

Expensive. I had to see why it’s so highly rated and it lived up to it. I brought it over with a bottle of Pueblo Viejo Anejo- My brother liked it better, My Pop didn’t. All said its a great tequila, but at $100...

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

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.
