Distillery Notes:

100% estate grown Blue Agave Tequilana Weber, and aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months.

Tasting Notes:

Caramel, vanilla, butterscotch and cooked agave aromas practically jump from the glass in this highly-praised and perfectly-aged añejo. This tequila is so rich and complex that some people are even able to detect pineapple, peach, orange blossom, nutmeg, and raisin in the nose.

Once in your mouth, the full cooked agave experience continues with a thick and oily texture that coats your mouth in a very soothing way. Butterscotch, caramel, toffee, citrus, and hazelnuts are common flavors that people identify.

Awards/Reviews:
Best Craft Anejo Tequila To Drink In 2023 - Liquor.com
"For those who are looking to shy away from bigger brand names but aren’t sure where to look, Fortaleza is an excellent start. Produced from 100% stone-crushed agave, this double-distilled Añejo tequila ages for 18 months in American oak prior to bottling. Slightly spicy and very aromatic, this complex tequila shows flavors of citrus, butterscotch, toffee, and cooked agave. Upon first sip, the tequila is thick on the palate, leading to a rich and mouth-coating finish. For Añejo lovers new and old, this pour promises to be a serious treat."

“Rich and complex. As good as tequila gets.”  
– Tracie Cone, Tequila Aficionado

“Citrus deliciousness! Baked agave, vanilla, slightly spicy. This is a delightful long-term sipper. A unique tequila experience.”
