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.

Sweet, oaky, caramel and vanilla. Seems to be served just about everywhere. Served neat it’ll do the job.

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.

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.

Aroma Cooked agave followed by oak, caramel, and alcohol. Taste Caramel followed by oak, cooked agave and baking spices.

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.

Caramel v v pronounced on nose Creamy (malo?) Toast, vanilla (smaller barrels) Acid well integrated Citrus more rounded off - not as pithy as Repo

Getting a very sweet round nose. Lots of vanilla. Quite sweet. Almost chewy. Getting a little molasses.

I’m not someone who has tried very many high class tequilas but for the money I think I would have picked something else unless you are partial to a very smooth buttery tequila. I know anejos are smooth I just like the tequila taste and this was lacking the bite I am used to compared to other anejos and reposados. Very nice finish and drinkable without a chaser.

Strong alcohol taste without any bite. Will make your chest warm immediately. Not a heavy smell, but taste very closely to the smell, earthy but clean. After taste is potent at first, but subsided quickly, and makes you want more. Bit pricey, but is worth it. Sip, and enjoy.

The aroma is not as spicy as I wanted. Smooth on the pallet with a nice finish. Don Julio 1942 is still my "Gold" standard

No harsh taste, no burn. Very good finish. taste good room temp or cold, no need for lime and salt. I honestly prefer this one over 1942 you can sip on this or take is as a shot.
