Wine Enthusiast 97 points - The newest addition to Herradura’s stunning collection of cask-finished Tequilas nods to Scotland. It smells like a dessert wine, showing stone fruit, Sherry and honey. Those flavors are echoed on the palate, a lingering, smoky wisp that evokes peaty Islay Scotch. It’s smooth and sips well. Aged for 11 months, then transferred to single-malt Scotch casks from the Highland and Islay regions for three additional months of aging. -K.N. (May 2015)
After being aged for 11 months in Herradura’s charred American white oak barrels, this reposado rests for an additional 3 months in single malt Scotch casks from Scotland’s Highland and Islay regions. The resulting tequila features vanilla, honey, butter, caramel, and soft spice flavors with a slightly sweet finish.
