Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Rich and dark on the nose with aromas of cigar box and very ripe tropical fruits. The palate is salty and spicy, with rustic leathery tobacco, coffee and spice. A generously flavored finish continues to develop for a long time. Chairman’s Trophy (Apr 2016)
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - The initial nosing passes find resiny, textile-like notes; following aeration time an oaky sweetness emerges in the aromatic form of malted milk and pastry dough. Entry is slightly fat, with an oaky creaminess; the midpalate offers earthy tastes of egg cream, peppery spice, jalapeño pepper, dill leaf and nutmeg. Concludes on an off-dry note that’s nicely peppery and woody.

Tequila for the true connoisseur since 1995. Aging for four years gives this world-class tequila its amber color and spectacular flavor blend of rose petal, vanilla and citrus with an amazing aroma and sweet cocoa-like finish.
