This loses points in value for the excessive retail price point (-4 points, from my typical score), that it's not very enjoyable to drink due to some bitter barrel notes (would maybe drink again, -3 points), and that I wouldn't recommend it to anyone based on the aforementioned (-5 points). This is an average tequila, in general, it doesn't really remind me of an extra añejo since it's only minimally aged, and it's a subpar anniversary expression. 19 for aroma. 25 for flavor. 21 for finish.
Enjoyed this but certainly price is silly. Will need another glass some time for full tasting notes.
The 12 finalists are tequilas that offer vibrant and varied aromas and flavors with good texture and a pleasing aftertaste.
Here's the reason for the añejo and extra añejo shortage that you probably didn't know was coming.
Tequila's success has created an enormous strain, imperiling the health and viability of the blue Weber agave on which tequila depends, as well as the farmers who grow it.
Lou cracks open one of the most rare and cherished tequilas made. Watch as he goes nuts tasting it.
In a "You Can't Take It With You" episode, Lou opens up a 70th Anniversary bottle of El Tesoro de Don Felipe Extra Añejo.
Lou Agave talks about why he likes El Tesoro products, including this añejo.
One hundred percent. The term seems straight forward enough. You see it listed on labels constantly. But in the case of 100 percent blue agave tequila, you shouldn’t be so sure.
Heads up! Lou says these bottles will be a collector's item soon. He explains why.
