In comparison to the blanco this has a lot more going on in the aroma. It's a nice mix of oak and butterscotch. I'm not surprised that the agave is essentially none existent here. All of the flavor seems to be coming from the barrel as its oaky (not overpowering) and a slight hint of sweetness on the finish. Completely different from the blanco (in a good way) but would have preferred to have some agave here.

Strong initial aroma of toasted coconut which makes me a bit hesitant - is that a "natural" aroma. The strong cherry aroma from the blanco then shows up and quickly overshadows the coconut. Although none of the typical oak aromas show up in the nose, they are immediately present in the flavor - vanilla and caramel with a definite fruit flavor as well. The disconnect between the nose and the flavor even as the glass is raised to drink is almost to the point of confusing versus just surprising. As with the blanco, the finish lingers in only the mouth but is much, much longer. A significant improvement on the blanco.
