The agave is grown, brick oven roasted, stone mill crushed, fermented, distilled and aged for 2-3 years entirely on the grounds of the La Fortaleza Distillery. Using labor-intensive traditional tools and techniques to create a tequila of surpassing beauty and unrivaled quality, the scents are rich and luscious: caramel, cinnamon, honey, nutmeg and a myriad of oak spice. On the palate the flavors start rich, sweet and soft in a creamy full mouth-feel; they range from supple agave honey to copious newly turned soil with wood sugars and spice revealed throughout. The finish shows exquisite zest, brisk minerals, baked agave, creamy fruit and a myriad of oak complexities; it is feisty, warming and contemplative. Fortaleza A¤ejo divulges the powers of patience and the brilliance of tradition. Try this neat with plenty of time to enjoy it.
