Review #1649 | Tequila Review #10

Distiller: La Fortaleza

Bottler: La Fortaleza

Brand: Fortaleza


ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet and toasty, lots of slivered almond, agave sweetness, a nice savory onion note, pepper and a bit of earth.

Taste: Really rich on the palate. Powerful, complex. Delicious. Vanilla, some clay and pepper, nice agave character. Faint poppyseed, slivered almonds, lime zest. Fresh baked bread, sourdough crust. Delicious.

Finish: Long finish, lots of pepper, fresh baked bread, sweet melon and lime.

Overall: This is a great tequila, and the cult awareness comes well earned this is an amazing sipper that also holds up so well in a cocktail, especially in the presence of aggressive citrus. I’m a fan, and a big one at that.

Thanks for reading!
