Review and Tasting


Sampled on 21/06/2015

Appearance:

(sample No. A-L-22) Clear, pale golden amber.

Aroma:

Caramel, vanilla, buttery butterscotch and roasted agave with light cinnamon and nutmeg spice, plump raisins and not quite ripe pineapple. Floral notes emerge with time.

Taste:

Delicately spicy and faintly sweet with chewy oily texture. Flavours of caramel, butterscotch, agave and well-judged dry cinnamon spiced oak.

Aftertaste:

Long, lingering and delicately cinnamon spiced.

Overall:

Rich caramel and butterscotch roasted agave with dry spicy oak and cinnamon spice. A fabulous añejo showing its extended aging period.
