Tasting notes


Nose

Complex, it starts on an ultra añejo tequila profile with cooked agave, lemon juice, lime peel, pepper, toasted almond, vanilla, pecan nut and then evolves on persimmon, nougat, date, mango and ginseng.


Palate

Fat and full, it follows the nose with a tad oakier and balsamic profile at first. Thereafter it evolves on cocoa, olive, cloves, tar, raisins and toffee notes with some saltiness.


Finish

Very long on molasses, tobacco and liquorice.
