El Ladron Reposado (750 ml)
This aged blue agave spirit rests in new and used whiskey barrels for three to six months. It leaves the barrel light amber in color with subtle sweet notes of caramel and oak.
Tasting Notes: A slight cinnamon note greets you and the vegetal characteristic is on the low side and more reminiscent of nopalitos (prickly pear cactus pads). There's more of a sweet vanilla note which continues on the palate. These flavors, however, are short-lived as the finish comes quickly with a dry and bitter profile. There isn't much sweetness or depth to the product; perhaps this could benefit for a bit more time in barrel.
