Seems like there are some changes that occurred over the years.. I have the old bottle (different recipe?) taste on that puppy is better than the “real” - have a few old bottles left that I guard under lock and key. I’m probably crazy but seems like the new bottle has gone through a few changes, the initial one while it changed not so good, but the new one is good.. I had one sit on my shelf for a few years at 1/2 bottle and seems that the “resting” has mellowed it out and is a special go to.. yum!

$30/neat at SR. Tequila. Nose: butterscotch and cinnamon with grass and wood. Palate is full and creamy with mint, white pepper, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Finish is mid to long with a taste of chocolate and cinnamon.

Aroma : Butterscotch, oak, vanilla, caramel. Also some dark chocolate and almond. Taste : Medium/full bodied with some oils. Small amounts of agave, but lots of distinctive vanilla and caramel. Oak, cinnamon, toffee, and trace amounts of black pepper and orange flavor. Finish : Long with lasting notes of more vanilla and caramel, as well as oak, toffee and cinnamon. Light cooked agave here as well, but not much. This is an interesting one because it's definitely a sweet tequila with TONS of vanilla and caramel, but it doesn't seem "sickly" sweet. And although this is good, it doesn't have the best value at $120 USD for a bottle.

We’ve all been there and tried to impress someone by ordering this tequila. Maybe it worked - maybe it didn’t. Regardless of the outcome it’s slightly above average on a good day.

A little disappointed considering all the hype about this tequila. Still a good tequila that I will drink. Aroma is the best part: warm with agave and good sweetness. Taste is good but very simple. Finish is long lasting but not very tasty—just ok.

If this tequila was in the $85 range, it would be my go-to tequila. But if I'm going to splurge or someone is looking to get me a gift, this is at the top of the list.

Great Vanilla Aroma followed by a flowery bouquet. Taste starts very smooth with lots of depth as it expands across the tongue. Liquid has substance “thickness” ends with NO harshness or “Rasp”. What a great Tequila!!!

A bit sweet for me. Very well balanced between agave and oak, but personally I’d like a bit more agave and a bit less sweet !! Sure to be a crowd pleaser, and would most likely convert a whiskey drinker to the beauty of agave.

For the hype I was expecting more. Don’t get me wrong it’s a well above average tequila! But for the hype I was expecting exceptional this is not that. But it’s a very good tequila for any occasion.

Vanilla similar to 70 but much more complex cherry, butterscotch and oak. Very light color for this añejo.

Don’t you just love change? Let’s face it, most of us don’t, which is why it can be downright scary when theres a change to your favorite tequila. When the bottle changes you can’t help but worry if the tequila has changed as well. One such case is the me
