Aroma/Taste –  Right off the bat, I'm greeted by the comforting scent of cooked agave, intertwined with the richness of roasted pineapple and cherry. There's a surprising hint of licorice and baking spices, adding depth to the aroma. As I delve deeper, I uncover a delightful interplay of fruity sweetness and subtle almond notes. Finish – The finish echoes the initial impressions, with lingering notes of roasted pineapple and butterscotch. While I appreciate the warmth, I can't help but notice a slightly bitter edge in the final moments. Overall – This tequila boasts one of the most distinctive aromas I've encountered, and I found it quite enjoyable. However, the bitterness in the finish detracted slightly from the overall experience. Nonetheless, it offered a refreshingly different journey through flavor profiles.

Aroma/Taste – The oak-aged bourbon is unmistakable. This has all the typical notes of barrel aging, vanilla, caramel, leather. Upon first sip, all the baking spices are there, cinnamon, clove, pinch of nutmeg; I also smell pine. While the essence of agave is discernible, it takes a backseat to the robust presence of bourbon. Finish – Herbal and green pepper on the finish. I enjoy a nice, long finish here. This is warm all the way down. Overall – I really enjoyed this tequila. It's a standout choice for introducing bourbon enthusiasts to the nuanced and delightful world of tequila. Though I appreciated its complexity, I wished for a more pronounced presence of agave, rather than it taking a supporting role.

Very smoky with a lovely finish. The sweetness of the agave comes through along with the smokiness which is a unique and favorable combination Nose is wood, some tropical fruit, which is special The finish is excellent

A bit of tingle on the nose— but pleasant. Butter cream sweetness — deliciously balanced, a nice mineral presence mid-palate, cooked agave. A quick finish but clean and balanced between tropical sweetness and minerality.

Nose- Slightly sweeter aroma, oak with aromas of caramel. Almost caramel candy like. Palate- Much more oak influence, sweeter, almost like an anejo. Strong caramel/vanilla flavors, cooked agave, baking spices, alcohol presence. Finish- Slightly shorter finish, oak barrel sweetness really carries through, overall woody finish. Notes- Almost Anejo like, slightly harsher, with more alcohol presence, being helped along with a healthy dose of oaky sweetness.

Eye- nice golden color with slow dripping legs Mouthfeel- buttery Nose- cooked agave, deep leather, fruit, caramel, barrel notes and minerality Taste- nice cave, sweetness buttery, pitted fruit, barrel oakiness, with a slight bitterness like orange peel, dark chocolate and butterscotch. This one has a short finish that dissipates quickly.

Nose is french oak floral and rain water. Nice agave sweetness and some wood notes that turn to a mellow finish with some tip of tongue numbing. Tasted during the AF Reposado blind 2024.

Bright nose, tropical, citrus? Odd finish. Was not a fan of this one and price kills it. Tasted with AF 2024 Blind Repo.
