Review and Tasting

Sampled on 31/05/2016

Appearance

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma

Cinnamon, black pepper, praline, vanilla and nutmeg. Very faint mocha coffee.

Taste

Strong oak influence with bourbon whiskey notes from the barrel also pronounced. Caramel, butterscotch and vanilla with powerful peppery spice.

Aftertaste

Caramel, praline, vegetal agave and warming spice.

Overall

Old Rip Van Winkle Barrels heavily influence this spicy tequila – dry oak and whiskey, with praline and caramel. At 23 mouths’ old this is almost a double añejo.
