Fortaleza is such a well crafted and respected brand, I can't believe that it's taken me so long to review this one. I've had this bottle for a while and I know that things change from lot to lot, but the one currently in my glass is Lot #11. I believe the one currently available as of the time of this post is Lots 16 and 17. Let's just dive right in...

Price: $55-60/bottle

Aroma: A pleasant nose of agave and light honey/vanilla.

Initial Taste: A really nice and interesting sweetness. There's a good agave flavor mixed with a vanilla bean essence. Very interesting and tasty.

Body: A fairly thin body that lacks the complexity that I might expect. The mix of the initial taste is there, but the body is a bit thin and the oak and spice aren't there as much as I might expect.

Finish: The wood becomes more prominent in this medium length linger with some spice and anise. It's a medium-short finish that goes down very easily...almost too much so.

Fortaleza is just a flat out quality brand. One thing that makes me like it so much is that is generally has a unique profile and produces flavors that you don't often find balanced as well in other juices. I'm in love with the vanilla bean flavor of this one at the start and while the later aspects are not as good as the start, this is a really quality tequila.

I really enjoyed this one. The butter and floral aromas really came through for me. This tequila really stands out as "authentic".
I thought the bottle was lovely and really like the "Pina" cork topper.
One of my new favourites, to be sure.

The first thing that hits you is the Butter smell that hits your nose I could smell this all night long the smell goes a long way in making the taste what it needs to be for sure. This Reposado is not rested as much as it could be . perhaps the Anejo will be my next try if they have one. For sure the Blanco was not one I would want to have again. This chick will be purchasing a bottle for my collection very soon.
