Nose opens with a bright hit of agave and gradually gives way to a distinct pepper with a slight hint of citrus unfolding last. Flavor is instant agave but quickly becomes dominated by ground pepper, accentuated by a bit of oak on the tongue, giving way to a more balanced combination of agave and pepper with a touch of anise revealing itself in the finish.

Wonderful balanced aroma in this anejo. Hazelnut, oak, with a small vanilla creeping in. Flavor is a spicy caramel. Finishes a bit weak but this stuff is a bargain.
