Review #1664 | Tequila Review #11

Distiller: La Fortaleza

Bottler: La Fortaleza

Brand: Fortaleza

Selection:

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: 18 Months


Nose: Rich and roasty, full of flavor. Honey, tobacco, robust agave sweetness, some caramel and honey. Faint oak, some cinnamon. Wholly pleasant.

Taste: Sweet on the palate, but not cloying. Lots of nice toffee, apple, honey, agave and pepper. Fresh sourdough crust, faint earthiness. Coats the palate nicely. Excellent flavor.

Finish: Long, sweet and rich. Lots going on here, with plenty of barrel influence shining through, without obfuscating the agave character.

Overall: I really like this. I’m hesitant on most Repo/Anejo because I typically enjoy the base spirit too much, but this is deserving of no doubt. A really nice blend of agave character and some barrel influence. Big fan.

Thanks for reading!
