The nose is very vegetal with a funky spice, mint and smoke aroma. Taste is fruity, sweet, spicy and vegeative. Some heat on the way out, and not bad overall.
Aroma: mocha, coffee, earth, wood, and agave. Palate; spices, agave , oak wood, nuts, coffee. Finish is long with coffee taste, dark chocolate, and spices. It finish a little bitter for an Añejo.
Loads of pepper and vanilla, it feels like it’s going to be too thin to stick with you long but it hung on for a medium finish. Can’t ask much more of an Añejo at this price point, this is a gem for the bargain bin!
Nose: Ripe fruit, candied fruits and spice. Vanilla and caramel. Aged bourbon peeking through with a hint of grass and earth. Flavors: Butterscotch, caramel, agave and sweet/hot jerk seasonings. Barrel tannins and bourbon roll in next. Fairly oily with a black pepper finale. Finish: Heat and sweet - likely to please to newer aficionados.
