Barrel Select “Tropical” was aged for 12 months in rum barrels. Bottled at 45.8%. Nose: Bright fruit notes. Mexican ciruelas, prunes, berries, cherries and green bananas. Vivacious jerk spices: cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, white pepper and anise. A touch of underlying molasses and vanilla. Flavor: Kick butt spiciness, but wrapped in vanilla and nutmeg creaminess. It has that tropical breeze rum roundness vibe. Natural sweetness plays nicely with the peekaboo agave presence. Some butterscotch and anise make their appearance a little later - as do some bitter notes. A salt and pepper undercurrent. Finish has a nice retro hale aspect to it - but the last impression of bitterness detracts a point or so... A bold profile.

the 45.8% ABV is present throughout, but doesn't take away from aroma and flavor. aroma is solid with dried cherries, firm banana, anise, cinnamon. maybe some nut in there too. really like this aroma, but also realize it isn't as agave forward on the nose as I like - but so good, makes me not miss it as much as I thought I would. and yes, can't forget the white pepper heat. flavor leads with the dried cherries and firm banana. anise and spice (cinnamon, baking spice), nice dose of olive brine, vanilla, and a good (not from a mix) Chinese restaurant Zombie comes through on the retro hale and finish. cooked agave only shows up on the finish for me, but I knew because of the barrel, it wasn't going to be at the forefront. that shows the influence of the rum barrels. the 45.8% abv works here for me. is it the prototypical anejo? No, but we know Carlos Camarena has nailed that already. this is a fun twist on it. Salud to Tomas Estes on these limited edition barrel select anejos

Sweet aroma. The tropical comes through more on the aroma than anything. Flavor is primarily agave with hints of sweetness from the rum barrels. Finish is a bit stronger than expected. I find it similar to the regular Anejo with a touch more sweetness coming from the rum barrels.

Lovely fruity nose mixed with sweet honey. Peppery but barrel rum finish is delicious.
