Quite woody from the extended aging, the price also holds this back for me in the rating. Strong oak notes with minimal agave influence and some heavy char elements from the barrel.

Nose: Love this nose! Penetrating ripe round fresh fruit aromas marrying nicely with bourbon oak. Dried fruit: apricot, plum and and citron. There are spices of cinnamon, cloves and prominent vanilla weaving their way through the nosing. A final note of pungent minerals. Flavor: The 44.4% ABV makes for a vibrant mouth experience. It is spicy, having a slightly acrid black pepper note, some jalapeño, a white pepper afterthought, peachy nuances, vanilla and a “creamy” woodiness. You have to dig to find agave notes. Finish: The palate and finish on this tequila remind me of top tier XAs. It has been a difficult tequila for me to rate. It has more oak and bourbon presence than I normally appreciate. But the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Nose: A big wallop of sweet ripe agave, reminiscent of being at a distillery during the last part of the cooking process. It is an aroma that stays with you. There is a bold barnyard, lactic undercurrent laced with minerality and earth. Some briney olive notes and a touch of smoke. This has a very dynamic nose. Flavor: An eye watering assault of finely ground fresh pepper, cinnamon, and cloves. Full on agave goodness with a nice viscosity. The barnyard and earthy minerals carry into the palate. This explosive tequila is not for the faint of heart. Finish: This Diablo struts its stuff, finishing with pepper heat, honey like agave mouth feel, some final anise - and a reminder that it is 55% ABV!

Citrus, leather, pitted fruit, oak aromas. Vanilla, cooked agave, raisin flavors. Great finish of moderate length. Thick mouth feel. Solid product.
