My first experience with the Baluarte line...mostly because it has required special shipping costs because of the extra tall bottle. Such is the life of someone living in the frozen North.

Aroma: A sweet and complex aroma of vanilla custard, cinnamon and cooked agave.
Initial Taste: Cooked agave, vanilla, brown spices (clove & cinnamon) and a hint of oak.
Body: A medium body that gets taken over a bit by the woody flavors. Lots of oak and chocolate flavors with a mild sweet spice.
Finish: A wonderful long finish that has a heavy chocolate linger along with a nice spice and oak flavor too.

The nose is very indicative of the initial flavor with a sweet and custardy element. The body and finish are entirely different with lots of oak notes that allow a pleasant bitterness to compliment the other flavors. It’s a very complex tequila with nice notes throughout the experience. The tall bottle, while looking nice, presents problems for those looking to have it shipped.
