Robust yet delicate, Fortaleza ‘Winter Blend’ for 2019 is a modern marriage of artisanal tequila that was aged in both used American whiskey barrels for 6 months and new French oak barrels for 10 months. Released at barrel strength for the purest experience.
Warm on the nose with notes of lemon/orange custard and spice. Creamy yet light and dry on the palate. This tequila is easy to drink with notes of sweet butter, citrus and spice. The finish is long and bright like a warm sunny day: perfect for those cold winter nights.
