The nose is creamy cooked agave. It’s fruity and floral with a slight acidic note. I also get hints of strawberries which I’ve never detected in a tequila before. The agave and alcohol present themselves first. I then get the sweet notes from the French oak and some fruity acidic notes from the Marsala wine influence. There’s a nice white pepper in the background from the higher proof. The price kept it from a 90 rating.

Nose before swirling: Red wine, melted butter, agave, and spice mix consisting of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and confectioners sugar. A faint whiff of oak sawdust. Nose post swirl: Vanilla bean, light colored tree fruit and prominent velvety agave. A slightly acidic snap to the aroma. Roasted filberts. Ripe darker colored fruit scents emerge and marry/integrate with the Marsala notes making for a warm round impression. I’m crazy about the nose on this. Flavor: Spicy, oily and viscous - with piercing pepper and a reminder that there is extra ethanol present. You can feel the heat as it journeys through the body. Still abundant fruit and agave - but more a background player to the pepper and cinnamon red hot spice. A tiny bit of bitters. Finish: All elements settle into place by the time you get to the finish. The Marsala wine barreling, which I had feared might dominate the profile - did not. I love what the fertile minds at Fortaleza bring to us each November. Thanks.

Such a wonderful product! It’s similar to the regular Reposado from Fortaleza but with some great notes of light wine and sweat oak. Love the gentle vanilla and butter as well. It’s a great product if you can find it! Though I would be hard pressed to pay much more than MSRP for it

High-proof blend (46.3% ABV) with barrel-aged influences of American oak and used Marsala wine French oak barrels. NOSE: sweet agave forward, lots of minerality, some vanilla, oakiness, anise, soft citrus, grass. MOUTH: similar to NOSE, good but muted mouth feel, love the extra level of intensity the higher-proof gives to the flavor profile. Has a touch of salty spiciness, perhaps influenced by the Masala wine barrels? Fruity, but not overbearingly so on the initial taste, but it disappears quickly, only to return in the finish.

Ethanol on the nose… slight tart sweetness… you can taste the Marsala notes some heat from the 92 proof… gets better as it opens up

This is different. Agave right into a red wine like fruitiness. (Grapes/cherries). The more you drink the best it get.

Finding this bottle in a retail store is running $150 to $300. Sorry, I love everything Fortaleza, but they have created something so hyped up, the cost doesn’t match the Reposado tequila. Very nice, balanced but I would drink all their other expressions first. Salud

on the nose i get cooked agave, vegetal (crisp), barrel spice, tropical fruit medley (citrus,pineapple, pear, mangoes) rose water and potpourri. very floral. also light hints of rye bread. on the palate i get a burst of pepper, cinnamon, sage, lavander, rosemary, glazed pears, some ate de guayaba, vanilla and sour grapes/raisins. im loving the dry heat on the throat that follows to the chest, since i prefer high proof. tasting the traditional Fortaleza minerality, getting notes of clay (earthiness). finish is nice and warm, dry sensation beautiful mouth cover. leaves a slight cinnamon vanilla raisin bread taste lingering. just as good or better than my single barrel Fortaleza repo... thumbs up.

light sweetness and a pleasant spiciness throughout that lingers just a bit. A bit of cinnamon and fruitiness the longer it sits. Excellent overall taste and mouthfeel. You can smell the pepper with some agave undertones.

Honeysuckle, white flowers, cardamom, cooked pear and agave in the nose. Palate is lovely, silky, slightly sweet honey, light sherry/marsala , vanilla/baking spices, and finishing broad and long with a warmth that expands. Not the most complex but i think it’s what it should be for a holiday winter blend! This feels very wintery to me. A fireside sipping spirit.

Aroma of sweet prunes/figs, agave, and familiar Fortaleza scent. Some floral and wine characteristics as well. Flavor seems a little dryer than previous years and the Marsala notes are balanced well and not overpowering. Also, not as sweet as others have mentioned. Still very well done and distinctive. However 2020 still ranks as my personal favorite.

This tequila is fantastic. Well worth the price of $130 that I paid for it. Smooth rich and creamy. I feel like most forget that Fortaleza doesn’t decide what the retailers set their price at. I see a lot of people complaining on the tasting notes that it isn’t worth the price. It’s a great tequila. If you see it, buy it. You won’t regret it!

The mouthfeel is Amazing. Beautiful tequila, enhanced but not overwhelmed by special aging. Lovely, dry, finish. This is my favorite Winter Blend.

Tasting with a glencairn. I have a feeling a different glass would help mitigate the higher alcohol content. On first sampling I couldn’t detect anything beyond the ethanol. It opened up considerably for the second day. Agave, orange peel, nutmeg, faint vanilla and vegetal notes on the nose. Mouthfeel is marvelous, with a viscosity that coats the mouth in flavor. Cooked agave, cinnamon, jalipeno and orange peel on the tongue. Agave, jalepeno, orange peel, and oak on the long finish. The bite kicks like a mule. Far dryer than the regular reposado. I’m not familiar with Marsala wine, but I assume that comes from being rested in old Marsala barrels.

I taste agave, pepper, clove, cinnamon, honey, and citrus. The cask proof wakes you up, with a fairly long finish that is both dry and tingles all over—like a brisk winter night. I was worried the Marsala cask would impart too much sweetness—and it does deliver a great nose, but on taste it leans more dry. It’s delicious!

On the nose it’s perfect! You definitely get the wine aroma accompanied with lots of spice. It’s got a dry peppery taste with a soothing finish. Beautiful expression.

Compared to the standard 40% Repo, the 2021 WB has a spicy, peppery, cinnamon slap in the palate that warms you on a cold night.

Butter and spice. On the back, I get a lot of dry bitterness that is not there on the regular reposado. Really nice heat that matches the ABV and nice finish. Definitely prefer the regular repo, but this is still very good and fun to try.

Aroma: The fragrance spreading as you open the bottle will be inviting you to indulge in it. It such a harmonic aroma of spiced cooked agave and hints of calientito (Mexican holiday ponche). Baking spices along with baked fruits (some tecojote) Flavor: The aroma notes described above are present and become elevated as you sip on it, but this time you obtain those sweet and acidic notes from when you drink a calientito. Imagine having vanilla, apple, guayaba, tecojote, piloncillo sprinkled with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and anise. It will set you on a holiday mood instantly. I was expecting additional Marsala wine distinctive notes (as usually found when cooking), but also appreciate it didn’t overpower the agave soul. Texture: Velvety entrance that evolve to a very enjoyable ‘dance’ in your palate. It’s complexity due to the aging method and spiced up layers reminds you about the 46.3% abv (which I love).
