The aroma is a balance of smoky notes, warm tobacco, dried fruit and a hint of spice, the company says. Flavors that follow Reserva 2016 – Port Cask Finished Reposadinclude oak-aged agave complemented by hints of rich port, plum and pepper. The finish has undertones of dark chocolate.
Colección de la Casa, Reserva 2016 – Port Cask Finished Reposado will be available nationwide for a limited time beginning this month at a suggested retail price of $89.99. It is bottled at 80 proof.
