Es un perfil que claro que vale la pena probar, quizás su principal fortaleza es la novedad, en el primer sorbo sorprende, agrada, pero pasando la sorpresa, el sabor y aroma impregnado por la barrica de cerveza cansa y resta

Nose: Begins with aromas found in a glass of hard cider/beer that has been left out overnight. A bit sour, with over ripe fruit notes: perhaps plum and raisins. Aroma of malted milk balls. Spicy cinnamon, trace cloves and zest of grapefruit. Flavors: Spicy and peppery entrance. Dark coffee, bittersweet chocolate, caramel and malted milk ball. But some bitterness too. Fairly feisty in the mouth. A little disjointed.... Finish: Some ethanol lip numb. More fruitiness shows up toward the end. A dark and heavy flavor impression lingers. This is a tequila that is indeed unique.

Aroma has a hint of sour beer, which I can sometimes enjoy. This isn’t too strong because there are still other aromas as well. There’s a funky earthy vanilla thing going on in the nose. Definitely unique. Flavor is nice, cooked agave, mushrooms, dried fruit on the palate. Finish is a bit spicy and that’s where I feel like I am detecting the emphasis of the beer cask, with a little bit of hops as it fades.

On the nose is cooked agave, hay, herbs, mineral. The flavor had agave, black pepper, alcohol, a nice sweetness. The finish is spicy, there is hint of jalapeño and butterscotch in the background.

Lot 70 of 122. An amazing nose and taste. Nice fruit with some heat, caramel, vanilla, apricot/fruit, orange citrus. Sweet agave passing through, and not all oak with the 10 yr aging. Taste has a sweetness with alcohol (but not excessive for a 110 proof), caramel, vanilla, raisen/apricot. orange citrus. Amazing!!

I really enjoyed this one. Nice aroma, with some butterscotch notes and hay, as well as some cooked agave. Taste was nice for me. Silky texture and nice notes from the barrel, going into some rich honey notes. Hopefully additive free. I read some comments talking about heat and harsh finish. For me, this is a well balanced tequila, with great character but without any bitterness or astringency. For the price point, this will be on my heavy rotation list.

Aroma : Cooked agave, vegetal grass, and cinnamon. Taste : Notes from the aroma carry through here too, with some black pepper as well. This is slightly spicy and fairly oily. Finish : Long with butter and grass notes, and some light spice too.
