Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, the liquid presents itself with a beautiful amber hue—a visual homage to its maturation in fine American oak barrels. The richness in color signifies the depth of flavors it holds within.
The olfactory experience is an orchestrated blend of caramelized agave, fragrant oak, and nuances of dried fruits like fig and raisin. Interlaced within these dominant aromas are subtle hints of vanilla and cinnamon, which beckon further exploration.
The palate is greeted with a creamy, buttery mouthfeel that leads to an explosion of flavors. Predominant notes of ripe agave intermingle with elements of oak, dark chocolate, and black pepper. The complexity is elevated by the age-old Tahona process, which extracts the purest flavors from the agave pinas.
The tequila finishes long and warm, with a sophisticated complexity that leaves a tapestry of spice, caramel, and wood on the palate. A residual sweetness lingers, completing a thoroughly rewarding experience.
The texture is distinctly smooth, a testament to the meticulous aging process. Despite the robust flavor profile, there is a remarkable softness that pervades each sip, making it highly sippable.
