Aroma : Light cooked agave and oak with caramel and some vanilla, and barrel spice. Taste : Medium bodied and light oils with with the same light amount of agave and oak. Caramel and vanilla here, as well as some cinnamon. This is light and somewhat sweet in flavor. Finish: Medium length finish with stronger emphasis on caramel and cinnamon notes.

Not a huge departure from the repo, it’s still very soft and goes down without and fight. The extra time in barrel has improved and lengthened the finish, it’s my favourite part.

I’m drinking this not long after tasting the white label añejo version..... I realize this is going to be a tough act to follow. Nice round and balanced flavors. Great reverence is shown to the agave in the barrel aging. Nice. A great tequila but not the white label...

the aroma is clean and sweet, with light pepper, citrus and honey. front is nearly nonexistent, then after a few seconds she kicks in with white pepper, agave, and small herbs. the end is quicker than the beginning. easy slide from pepper and citrus with a little that lingers in the throat.

The aroma is interesting. I get butterscotch but also something slightly metallic. The flavor is super smooth and the aroma definitely comes through. The finish is nice and smooth. A good Anejo for the end of the night.

Caramelly aroma and taste- less earthy than the Mexico version but still nice.

Subtly sweet aroma of vanilla but agave still shows up. Nice that the agave shows up in the flavor as well and is not overwhelmed by the barrel. Long subtle finish is very nice.

Lots of agave on the nose, some oak and vanilla. Flavor is light for an Anejo with cooked agave front and center as you’d expect from a Carlos Camarena tequila. A little oak and butter with some citrus toward the back end. Finish is okay but not long. Nice Anejo that’s certainly true to the agave which is there throughout. I expected a little more full flavor and complexity from this tequila, especially given how amazing the blanco and repo are.

Not bad for an anejo, not spectacular, but not bad. I would definitely drink it again. Front end starts with cooked agave, it doesn’t last long , the second part hits with some burn going down the throat, there is some complexity to it, different people will taste different things.

Solid Añejo but not my wheelhouse.

This is the best tequila I have ever had. The Reposado and Blanco are also amazing. This tequila is clearly free of additives. It’s amazing and refreshing to see the natural color. Aged longer than most tequilas in the price range, I prefer this even over straight whiskey. The color is a soft gold like fine straw. Aroma of vanilla, alcohol, honeysuckle. The taste is smooth with a heavy oak bite, with an almost butterscotch richness in the mouth. It is dry but there is a lingering astringent sweetness from the wood almost like cotton candy. Herbaceous. Peppery bite. Excellent straight, on the rocks, added to a hot toddy, Irish coffee, or chai tea. It’s absolutely everything I have always wanted in a fine tequila.

One of my favorites. Very easy to sip, minimal heat, nice agave, citrus, cinnamon, light caramel. This is so smooth to me. Great one to get into if friends are reluctant about trying out tequilas. Everyone I’ve given it to has been surprised how good it is for the price (got a great deal at hi time for like $39, it’s usually around $50 - $60 though, well worth at the higher price point).

Initial aroma was vanilla, some cinnamon. Taste was mellow without a lot of the rich flavor I look for in an Anejo but tasty nonetheless, Oviedo tequila snob may differ but, that being stated, a refreshing Anejo overall. It is a sipper that I would indulge in again. Recommend this Anejo,

Eyes: clear and bright with golden hue. Nice legs, but not really pronounced; more tears. Nose: Not much alcohol, cooked agave, oak, black pepper, pineapple, melon, apple, grapefruit, and some cinnamon. Taste: medium mouthfeel, no lip numbness, cooked agave, some oak, pepper, little peppermint, some grapefruit, cacao, some cinammon and nuts. Finish: long finish with minimal heat. There is some cinammon, vanilla, and caramel at the end. Really enjoyed it.

Cooked agave, natural oak, vanilla, fruity aromas, delicious! Again barrel notes of sweet oak but not too heavy well balanced smooth and dangerously easy to drink!

Review #102 - El Tesoro de Don Felipe Tequila Anejo

This is one of the first premium tequilas that I ever bought and sipped. It's a good solid tequila with no special tastes that make it unique.
