Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon pouring, one is immediately struck by the tequila's lush amber hue, a visual testament to its 8-month sojourn in American white oak barrels.
The nose is an orchestration of multi-layered aromas. Initial impressions of ripe tropical fruit and caramelized agave give way to subtler notes of vanilla, leather, and a touch of cinnamon. A careful inhalation may also reveal a faint mineral note, attributable to the calcareous soils of Los Altos.
Sophisticated and yet highly approachable, the palate exhibits a velvety texture and complex flavor profile. Layers of toasted oak, dried figs, and baked agave create a melange of sweetness and earthiness. An underpinning of white pepper and herbal nuances add complexity without overwhelming the palate.
The finish is enduring, characterized by an evolving array of flavors. Initial notes of caramel and spice dissolve into a lingering sweetness with a warm, oaky resonance.
Medium-bodied but remarkably smooth, the texture complements the robust flavor profile, making for an impeccably balanced drinking experience.
