Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

The nose allows no doubts: This is a whiskey barrel aged tequila. The expression of both spirits on the palate, though, is what makes this truly memorable: savory agave is molded to new dimensions by vanilla, toffee, and espresso notes. A unique hybrid that works.
