Tapatio Añejo bottle

Tasting Notes

Nose

Rich and spicy, but rounded. The time in a cask has sanded the sharper edges off the agave, leaving fruit and a more subtle and refined flavour. It’s also picked up creamy notes as well as a hint of vanilla sweetness.

Palate

Comparatively weighty, but still elegant. It’s soft, with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove balanced against the agave pepperiness, and complemented by sweet fruit and cocoa richness.

Finish

Long and spicy, with herbal notes developing and fading to a chocolate-led end.

Comment

Very moreish, thanks to the softening effect of the casks. Everything is much more integrated, combining complexity and an easy-drinking character.
