Beautiful from start to finish. Sweet but full of balance.

The nose doesn’t do this justice, I get some agave and oak of course but no indication of the magic to come. The port cask finish still has a strong backbone of French oak but gives way little by little to a warm, sweet crème brûlée mess inside a bottle. I’m going to be careful to make this bottle last, it’s a really great example of how the right barrel can make tequila shine.

As a brand fan of Casa Herradura, this is my 2nd round with the Port Cask repo; scents of light agave, slight grape and honey; on the front, more agave, slight alcohol burn, notes of caramel; on the backend, more burn with light honey and toffee notes; at a price point of approximately $80.00 USD, this is fair to good value;

I had this tequila in Austin at a bar and really enjoyed it so started searching for a bottle. I found it for sale finally in a small town in Illinois for $90. That may be cheap or expensive, but to me it was a deal. I have now been sipping at it for 10 months. It is one of those tequilas that I am generally happy to bring out for relaxing. But there is something off about it for being tequila. Specifically, the port influence adds a type of aftertaste that doesn't normally come with tequila. It is rosy and sweet and good but not tequila. Purists could pass. Those who like other unusual barrel takes could do a lot worse than this.

A gift from a friend this Port wine cask finished reposado has a definite wine nose to it that is very evident when tasted. Tannic elements from the port come right out front and add an interesting taste element to the Herradura reposado.

(Port cask finish) Aroma is relatively floral with hints of caramel, earth and agave. There does seem to have a bit of sweet grape as well (from the port barrel or just marketing affecting perception?). Complex flavor that begins slightly sweet and evolves relatively quickly to baking spice (cinnamon and clove) with some good heat. Finish is warm and relatively long but rests in the throat rather than the mouth. I would say the port cask is having at least some impact on flavor but other than the sweetness and a bit of grape I'm not sure I can be any more specific.

1 run deal, regular reposado then moved to a sherry barrel for 2 months, expected a better finish
