Color: Brilliant golden hue
Nose: Rich, sweet aromas of caramel and toffee layered with a fresh vanilla fragrance and hints of red fruits like cherry mixed with caramel and almonds. Chocolate tones along with cinnamon and a light touch of wood.
Taste: A silky, smooth character that coats the palate with roasted agave and vanilla flavors, sun-ripened tropical fruits and spiced undertones to create a wonderfully unique tequila experience
Finish: Beautiful, sweet agave-laced finish with lingering hints of oak and rich vanilla essence
Wine Enthusiast 98 points - A stunning limited-edition añejo. The golden color and caramel scent hint at what’s to come: sweet agave flavor, a lingering whisper of smoke and mellow notes of tropical fruit, Sauternes and butterscotch.
