Herbal vanilla with new leather aromas.
With over 11 months of age this is very nearly an añejo and it has the vanilla, oaky flavours you'd expect from such a spirit but intriguingly boasts the herbal, vegetal agave notes of a reposado.
This oak/agave balance continues through the lingering finish.
