Tasting Notes

Nose

Extraordinary, concentrated and elegant. Creamy oak sits alongside grilled green peppers and peppery spice, toffee apples, honeysuckle and sweet pea, and a buttery backbone of sweet pastry. It develops in the glass, bringing out more floral meadow notes, but never losing its rich and spicy core.

Palate

Intense but very well balanced. Sweet and peppery agave is joined by spiced sponge cake, brown sugar and high-cocoa chocolate. As it sits in the glass, more delicate notes are revealed - meadow flowers and soft orchard fruit, as well as rich cream.

Finish

Rich, long and warming, with waves of flavour - Turkish Delight, fruity chocolate, woody spice, ending with a gentle dryness and cocoa.

Comment

A complex and ever-changing spirit that rewards time in the glass with a huge array of flavours. A Tequila that dispels myths and sits alongside the finest aged spirits in the world.
