Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Rich and dark on the nose with aromas of cigar box and very ripe tropical fruits. The palate is salty and spicy, with rustic leathery tobacco, coffee and spice. A generously flavored finish continues to develop for a long time. Chairman’s Trophy (Apr 2014)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Bright gold hue. Toasted oak aromas dominate the nose, while the palate is lush and sweet, showing sweet caramel flavors and just an underlying hint of agave. (Mar 2013)
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - The initial nosing passes find resiny, textile-like notes; following aeration time an oaky sweetness emerges in the aromatic form of malted milk and pastry dough. Entry is slightly fat, with an oaky creaminess; the midpalate offers earthy tastes of egg cream, peppery spice, jalapeño pepper, dill leaf and nutmeg. Concludes on an off-dry note that’s nicely peppery and woody.

Tequila for the true connoisseur since 1995. Aging for four years gives this world-class tequila its amber color and spectacular flavor blend of rose petal, vanilla and citrus with an amazing aroma and sweet cocoa-like finish.
