Nose: Tropical fruit, banana and pineapple are prominent, honey, allspice, light citrus, and vanilla Flavor: Nice oily mouth feel, starting off spicy flavor of a jalapeño, cedar notes, sweetness of honey, fruit, and agave, very nicely balanced Finish: Long, starts sweet and ends spicy I would use this in my bananas fosters in place of rum.

My favorite of the 3 this reminds me most of the regular Ocho Añejo releases.

Barrel Select “Transatlantic” was aged for 12 months in barrels from both the South Pacific and the Caribbean, as well as Cognac barrels. Bottled at 44.2%. Nose: Playful spices. Nutmeg, allspice and a pinch of cinnamon. Tropical fruits, vanilla and caramel. Crisp mineral aroma, citrus zest, light mint and a suggestion of molasses. Flavor: Oily, spicy entry. Buttery almond cream custard. Round fruit and agave amalgam. Dried apricots and raisins. Cedar wood note (think pencil shavings). A hint of salinity. Nicely balanced in spite of the ethanol heat and trace bitterness. Finesse is the word that comes to mind.

Fruity notes permeate throughout. Pineapple, raisin, melon. Flavor is hard to lock down. So much happening. It’s spicy. It’s fruity. It’s delish.

Has a hint of sweetness thanks to the Rum and Cognac barrel finishing. Very very good, buy a bottle of you can

transatlantic anejo. 44.2% abv. as with all aged Ochos, Carlos Camarena let's the agave be the star. the other aromas and flavors just provide some backup and complexity. tropical fruit, cooked agave, baking spice, some cinnamon and vanilla on the great aroma. some hint of cognac too. the more it opens up, the more it draws you in. sweet cooked agave and a touch of whiskey heat hit the tongue first. rum soaked pineapple, baking spice, cinnamon, fresh wood chips (light though, pine or cedar?). ridiculously complex for an anejo that doesn't get lost behind the barrel. phenomenal, must buy. for less the $100, this scores high marks on value compared to other "rare, high end tequilas". 200th TMM review and my longest, I guess I liked it

Tons of tropical fruit on the nose. The palate is surprisingly balanced between the cognac, rum, and agave flavors. Very nice if you're looking for a complex sipper.

Haven’t tasted the other two from this set. First impressions, great aromas, first sip sweet tropical flavors, finish was long and enjoyable.

Transatlantic is aged in rum casks from Fiji & Panama, as well as Cognac casks from France, with an ABV of 44.2%. I’m pickup up banana, pineapple, honey, jalapeño, and mint. A bit of pepper but not the same bitterness as the others, sweet and balanced, with the smoothest finish of the bunch. This is my favorite of the selections.

all of the Anejo expressions have been great. Transatlantic has a great flavor complex with just the right amount of heat

On the nose it smells really good. -Cooked agave -Lots of fruit (almost like a wine) maybe mangos and grapes -A little mineral -A tad bit of oak Taste Agave/ little cinnamon Lots of Fruity ness Little oak Little vanilla on the backend Medium to low heat that last after. Overall really good. Think it’s my favorite out of the 3 special editions . Definitely different profile but really really good. Definitely an very easy sipper.
