This my second time purchasing Fortelaza Reposado, I've also tried their Blanco "still strength"
The first bottle (of the 2 bottles I opened smelled a little stronger than I remembered, it tasted stronger too) I compared from a previous order from another site just to be sure and confirmed that the 2 bottles had different effects going down, I tried the 3rd bottle from this order and it smelled ok, maybe a little milder than my original purchase but had almost no harshness going down
There is a discrepancy between different bottles of Fortelaza but I'd still recommend it for it's unique flavor, and wonderful smells and decent price
The shipping is a little steeper here but the price was $20 cheaper than my other site, everything went fine with the shipping, I would definitely use this site again despite the higher shipping cost if the product was a better price than other sites, again the price here was good and it's also hard to find Fortaleza in stock and find sites that ship out of state (for example, Michigan)
Aromas of citrus, caramel, butter, cooked agave, and sage are the beginning of a pleasingly balanced and very unique tasting experience. Fortaleza Reposado has it’s own distinct character, and is not like any other tequila. Flavors include cooked agave, citrus, vanilla, apple, earth, and cinnamon. The finish is long and rich, delicately spicy, and it has an oily texture that make this a joy to drink. You simply cannot go wrong with Fortaleza Reposado. It’s popular with beginners and experienced
