Lots of caramel, vanilla and some cinnamon. Agave is a little lost in this expression. Decent for an Anejo and not bad for the price.
A smooth, on the light side Anejo from a good producer. Available everywhere, would choose this over patron Anejo for the money
Aroma : Oak, some vanilla and caramel, trace amounts of agave and pepper. Taste : Lots of oak with a bit of underlying agave, cinnamon, and a little bit of the fruity, citrus notes I get with other expressions from Don Julio. Also some amount of honey on the palette, as well as caramel/vanilla and hazelnut. Finish : Fairly short with some predominating oak and black pepper, and some agave. This is a good Añejo, but it doesn't have enough character to speak of. The oak did too much to mask the agave and there were no new flavors that replaced it, so something seemed missing.
It was a nice digestif. I didn’t pick up many notes of the aging process. Some subtle aroma of oak on the nose, but nothing on the palate. Its an easy drinker.
Sweet, oaky, caramel and vanilla. Seems to be served just about everywhere. Served neat it’ll do the job.
A classic, you can’t go wrong with Don Julio. The nose picks up oak, agave and toasted vanilla that are present in the body and finish.
Take this with a rain of salt because I really don’t like most Anejo’s, this one is not my jam. Nutty flavour reminds me of sherry, I can’t pick out much agave and the last sensation is a bitter note.
Somewhat older bottle, 2009 SAT tax stamp, 38% Mexican version. Nose: Barrel spices and ripe fruit. Some caramel. Palate: Nice mouth feel. Spices, pepper, nuttiness and subtle oak. Balanced finish with a marriage of pepper and sweetness.
It’s the tequila that got “it” started for me, as in my interest in premium and quality tequilas. Used to be my absolute favorite before I discovered other brands. It’s one of the best mass produced products out there and you can always count on it being good. It’s flavorful, smooth, not too much agave but you get vanilla and oak. Easy to find at a store or on a bar shelf, and it’s my go-to for when a bar has limited/poor tequila choices(Patron, Cuervo, Sauza and Corralejo, etc..)
The aging in this mini sample from the same time frame as the blanco shows none of the yeast influence of the blanco distillate. Oak and spice dominate here and the glass displays some thin, fast legs after sipping. My palate has changed from when I first aquired these bottles and I now consider them just servicable.
Smooth barrel flavor, was a regular sipper when mixing last Los Skeletone Blues album 'Operation Avalon'.
Had to let this open up a bit due to the strength of the alcohol. From the body to the finish I get more wood than I like. Reminds me of cazadores anejo.
This is a sweet Anejo. Lots of vanilla with agave and wood. Smooth finish of caramel, oak and just enough spice.
Aroma of yeast and agave. Flavor of wood and spice is very tannic. Simple easy finish. This is a nice, middle of the road tequila. Easy to drink, nothing overpowering or overwhelming but also nothing really special.
A subtle but solid tequila. Rated blind. Straw/hay and toasted vanilla flavors. Not overly oaked, thankfully. Seems more like a Reposado. (A good thing.)
I'm more of a repo guy. Añejos feel like spicy bourbon to me. I like bourbon, but with my tequila, I want to taste the fruit, not the barrel.
Not as smooth as I expected when tasting next to others.
Vanilla, wood , Not a huge fan of the after taste but it is still quite nice
Poco color para un añejo, buen sabor a agave y madera, dulce y suave
Tasted at a restaurant bar because I wanted tequila and no restaurant has Fortaleza or El Tesoro. Pleasantly surprised really, a little bit of agave up front with oak, vanilla, and a kind of chocolate note. Smooth with a long finish. I don’t have the palate to judge if additives were heavily used, but I suspect so because of the sweet note that is more prominent than I would expect. Still, good enough I will be ok ordering this at bars and restaurants in the future since it is easier to find than my preferred juices.
Very nice. Lovely sweet smell like biscuits,cookies. Very soft on the pallet. Really like this one! :)
Aroma is citrus (mandarin, lime) and caramel Taste consists of cooked agave, oak and honey Finish is light but with a nice spice to it almost
I get the same buttercream frosting flavor that I get from aged Casa Noble. I dislike it intensely. More than likely this comes from additives like vanilla or so I’m told, which makes me sad since many a year ago, Don Julio Repo was my introduction to quality tequila.
Super smooth from start to finish. A great strong casual endeavor.

Aroma: Sweet cooked agave, with hints of vanilla and oak. Taste: Slightly sweet with a light oak and vanilla flavor. Finish: Smooth and light on the finish, with a slight alcohol burn mixed with a pleasant sweet vanilla taste that dissipates quickly. Overall: Quite a good añejo tequila, especially for the price, I was surprised by how much I like it. That said, I do not know if the flavors are achieved through the use of additives. If there are any, they are very subtle and well done.
