Wow! This is delicious. So incredibly smooth. The cognac barrels definitely add some great flavors to the already fine tequila of El Tesoro. I tried this 1/23/09 at a tequila bar out of a snifter for $20/shot - I wasn't complaining though since the bartender poured me about 4-4.5 ounces! I even got a "souvenir" El Tesoro shot glass!

The aroma was fairly complex - some citrus notes, slightly smokey, carmel, subtle vanilla - a nice sweet smell overall.

Initial taste was carmel, vanilla, very mild pepper, and mild agave. Body was similar with a little bit of a smokey flavor than the initial taste. Finish was medium duration with very little alcohol flavor.

The most notable thing about this tequila is how incredibly smooth it is. I was amazed. I think I may splurge a bit beyond what I usually spend and add this to my collection soon. Highly recommended!
