Crystal clear, whisper of yellow coloration from aging (see above) lovely body. On swirling it leaves a very light coating on the glass with legs forming. Has that good tequila smell. It has all the right elements right at the start: You can pick up the french oak/cognac at first nosing. Bouquet is more restrained than its younger sibling. Much the same as the Silver: savory, citrusy lime, pineapple, at first then a sort of mineral salts at the end with a peppery finish. Oak, savory notes, like olive brine and a lime citrus develops very quickly slight alkali tang and touches of leather. Finish has a sichuan pepper overtone along with a somewhat nutmeg/mace note winding up with a long, lingering end.
