Barrel #7 Tasting Notes

Nose: Earthy pine and fir aromas – like walking through a Christmas tree lot. Grilled ripe pineapple and candied orange zest. Spiced dulce de leche. Sage and thyme, with contrasting sweet allspice. A tease of white pepper. The nose blossoms, given a little time.
Flavor: Fruit, spice, citrus and brine. Caramel, vanilla bean and almond custard. A pop of pepper heat that lingers – at the same time silky and creamy on the palate. The fruit and agave sing out.
This finishes with a serenade of barrel spices, a rich mouth feel and center stage agave.
