Is the lot number for the Fortaleza you note this hand written number on the back? Does that make this a lot 17?

Yes, that is lot 17. However, the lots of each expression are independent of each other. Lot 16 blanco was not aged to make Lot 16 repo or añejo. I've heard good things about lot 17 añejo. Lots 15-16 añejo (from what I was told from someone inside Fortaleza) were not aged as long as previous batches because of demand...and some said were not as good. Fortaleza is a true artisenal brand so every lot will vary. Salud!
