Surprisingly a bit neutral in the nose, that might have more to do with my glass than the Tequila but I can’t seem to coax any aroma out. Damn near perfect flavour and finish, roasted agave and fresh black pepper makes a nice contrast.

LWB-R02-1092 First tasted in 2021 but lost my notes. Revisiting Feb 20, 2022 Overall, I found the nose to be quite complex with notes from all three barrels being prevalent. I enjoyed this reposado. Barrel spices ale yeast cinnamon citrus oak agave and some brine. As it sits and opens, vanilla and caramel come thru, with some beer and cider on the palate and pepper on the finish. A little cheesy, lactic taste toward the end with some heat. Although, I'm not a beer fan, i'm enjoying this. My rating would be 87/88 but i downgraded rating because of price.

Good idea and tequila, but not a fan of the aroma and flavor. Notes of acidic cider & IPA beer, which are not of my preference. In my opinion, doesn’t have a subtle balance and flavors clash a little

Wow, the oak, ale, fruit, agave, yeast, citrus flowery bouquet aroma just blows you away. Then, the smooth payoff of the wood and agave but tge ale undertones, woof! Beer flavor comes through in the silky finish and I just want to sit and sniff my empty glass as long as is wafts. What a pleasing experience! Top of the food chain even though I'm partial to Fortaleza in the first place.

A light straw color with really nice even legs and tears that take their time on the glass. The aroma is sweet cooked agave, hint of yeast, cinnamon, and a bit of ethanol and brine. The flavor has quite a bit going on and is really good! Nice mouthfeel with cooked agave at the forefront of course. I can definitely taste the ale (yeast & malt) but I also pick up notes from the other barrels, both sweet and wood. Surprisingly long peppery finish with a bit of bitterness that I have to believe comes from the hops. I love it!

My new favorite reposado! Rich aroma full of agave, ripe fruits, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and wheaty beer. The taste is similar with cooked agave, caramel, toffee, black pepper, pear, apricot and light cider. The texture is full and creamy with a small amount of sourness from the beer barrels. The finish is a bit more sour, and has stronger notes of vanilla, toffee and oak. This is great tequila that I was lucky enough to be able to find the last bottle of at my local liquor store. I suggest everyone try and do the same because this stuff is special.

There’s so much going on in this tequila. Cooked agave,vanilla, oak. The taste is great agave, vanilla and I get a slight fruitiness with a medium heat.

Fortaleza Winter Blend 2020 The nose is great! I can smell the American and French oak barrels while still detecting the beer barrel. It’s a very complex nose for a Reposado. I get the sweetness from the French Oak and the musty whiskey note from American Oak and then a sourness from the beer barrel. Don’t worry the cooked agave still punches through. I taste sweet agave and then I get some nice pepper on the mid-palette thanks to the higher ABV. On the back end comes the French oak sweetness that turns to a dry note thanks to the beer barrel. There’s also some sourness that dances around on the finish. This is an excellent reposado! Thank you Fortaleza!

Reevaluated- 90. I love it a lot, and I love the profile and the triple barreling.

No. Lote LWB - R - 02 No. Bottle 1906 ABV 46% Warming initial nasal impact. The aroma leans strongly to cider, cinnamon, stone fruit, light vanilla, wheat and a yeasty, lactic component presumably from the influence of the English ale seasoned barrel. This mellows the oak (especially the french oak) that was much sharper on the 2019 edition. The initial mouth feel is warming and coating with a sufficient amount of alcohol. Flavor blends cinnamon, stone fruit, butterscotch, baking spice and cooked agave. The white pepper finish is pleasant and makes for a well balanced reposado. The WB 2020 is the same color as the std Fortaleza reposado. Although almost identical ABV as the 2019 edition, the 2020 has a softer finish. I give it a slight nod over the 2019

Nose is malted agave, a bit of yeast and cider. Oak notes on entry along with cider, creamy agave custard and a serious mid tongue buzz from the 46 %. Finish is well balanced and has natural sweetness that fades to some citrus and tart notes from the beer barrel finishing.

I’m getting cider, cinnamon, vanilla, agave, pears, cherry, and hay on the nose. Taste agave, caramel, cider, cherry, flowers, white pepper, leather, and a surprising effervescence on the finish.

Nose: 2020 Winter Blend’s beer cask lineage shows up immediately upon pouring, with a sparking cider aroma and a sweet malty note. There are a myriad of backup aromas. Cinnamon, orange blossoms, almond paste, candied citron, and a dash of butterscotch. Also a whiff of sharp minerals and damp earth. A fresh feel about this one. Flavor: Zingy barrel spice and white pepper marrying nicely with ripe round fruitiness, and butterscotch/toffee undercurrents. Dried fruits, apricot and cherry?, peeking through. The finish brings additional vanilla whipped cream, citrus, molasses and some leather to the show.

Aroma: vanilla immediately on the nose. Behind that, lots of agave Taste: you get a little vanilla at first then some creamy feel. It coats the mouth nicely. Buttery. You can taste the influence of the aging but still lots of agave. A little bite at the end but smooth overall Would 100% recommend to buy it!

this is one of my current favorites, I just wish it wasn’t so hard to find! Light agave smell. Sweet up front, agave and vanilla. Gets peppery, oaky, with a little heat throughout but nothing overpowering. All around lots of flavor.

Very interesting high-proof blend of 3 barrel-aged influences (American oak, used French oak, used english ale barrels). NOSE: agave forward, caramel, vanilla, oakiness, anise, soft citrus, vegital minerality, grass. MOUTH: same as the NOSE, with a buttery mouth feel, the higher-proof gives an added intensity. Has a very subtle malty flavor mid-taste that falls off quick, and allows for a nice smooth finish.
