The Artesanal Fuerte is bottled at a significantly higher proof than their regular blanco, 50.5% abv. On the nose, there is pepper, slight vanilla, honey, leather, an earthy note, cooked agave, anise, and smoke. The palate is exceptionally easygoing for a high proof tequila, but the flavors are certainly full and assertive. It's earthy, slightly smoky, spice and pepper with some anise, honey, and a hint of citrus. A slight sugary sweetness is present throughout. The finish is medium long, with more spice and anise.
