Very unique juice hidden in a wine bottle. Aroma: vanilla, spices and fresh agave. Palate: nutmeg, cloves, peppers, oak wood, cooked agave, baking spice, orange peal, chamomile. Finish is sweet, cinnamon, spices, oak, come together very nice and stays long after the last sip.

Heavy molded glass bottle with a big natural cork. This has a big bourbon flavor more like an añejo and some slight bitterness that works in this context. Agave, oak spice and some barrel funk (for me the funk is an element from the aging that is neither sweet as in caramel or creme brule or aromatic as in vanilla) along with alcohol and some woody sweetness. NOM 1506 from A&T Importing, early 00's.

NOM 1420 which isn't a choice. Some floral notes on the nose along with oak from the barrel. 15 or more years old this reposado is very easy drinking with sweetness from agave, vanilla from the barrel and some caramel as well. Medium length finish with a nice roast agave presence that fades to lingering natural sweetness.

From NOM 1420 which is listed as a prior producer though not for this Blanco Fuerte expression. Clean agave nose with some alcohol from the 100 proof. Silky smooth in the mouth with agave and pepper, both green and black. Nice lasting finish from this very nice older blanco.
