Agree with numerous other ratings. Much going on with this. Much good flavour. But upon immediate opening has an odour and taste of alcohol ear swabs. After 30 minutes resting it is MUCH better. This is a complex tequila. Rebellious.

Quite woody from the extended aging, this French Oak aged double distilled? tequila is a bourbon lovers dream. Sipping this presents rich toffee and caramel along with some agave on the backend. Finish is pretty short and lowers the score several points.

The nose is full butterscotch and barrel. The palette is not my fav, not very balanced was a bit dry for my liking. But if heavily barrelled XA is your thing I think you will love this.
