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 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.

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%.
