(sample No. A-L-22) Clear, pale golden amber.
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.
Delicately spicy and faintly sweet with chewy oily texture. Flavours of caramel, butterscotch, agave and well-judged dry cinnamon spiced oak.
Long, lingering and delicately cinnamon spiced.
Rich caramel and butterscotch roasted agave with dry spicy oak and cinnamon spice. A fabulous añejo showing its extended aging period.
