On the nose, Sweet agave, butter, oak and caramel. A fruity/floral note that is interesting. On the palate, lots of clean, sweet cooked agave, with butterscotch and cinnamon. Definitely getting that floral note, not as much oak as I’d expected. A little heat but not too much, very thick and full bodied, the flavors are just very present, if that makes sense. Very good. For $45 at Total Wine in SoCal, definitely worth grabbing.

Nice agave on the nose with barrel notes. Palate is full of agave with a little heat on the finish. Can’t go wrong with 1139 offerings.

oak hit first on the nose, followed by agave, vanilla and some spice. oak lingers in the nostrils. agave forward, vanilla touched with caramel and wood on flavor with some citrus in background. baking spices hold on the finish. really nice anejo for just under $60

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.

Re-Evaluated upwards to 87, since my video review. New tahona top Label. Very nice all around . Old School Olive Oil= Re-Evaluated upwards to 88, since my video review. Amazing- smokier than new label, simply fantastic.

Knowing exactly where an Anejo fits in and not expecting to be spoiled as if it were an EA but definitely expecting more from it than a REP, this one fits exactly into its catagory and pigeon hole. Aroma is wood heavy then a backbone of light vanilla and light agave. More wood forward in aroma than expected but not over oakey in flavor. Flavor is light but aggressive and nuanced with a good balance. Been disappointed by Anejos that fall short and fit better into reposado catagory but this is not one of those. Firmly holds its place in all catagories. Well done, well priced, and well loved.

An Añejo that’s very light in color, due to Carlos Camarena’s preference with aging his tequilas. They use very worn American oak barrels and age for the minimum about of time legally allowed by the CRT. For that reason you still get agave with this Añejo and even the Extra Añejo(from what I’ve been told). A pretty good sipper without overpowering wood/oak notes or excessive vanilla/caramel notes. A well made agave oriented Añejo that won’t break the bank.

Great value for an Anejo aged 2 plus years. Sweet, vanilla, balanced acidity with slight heat on the finish.

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.

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.

Appearance: Warm golden amber, crystal clear. Aroma: Rich agave, vanilla, caramel, with hints of oak and spices. Taste: Smooth blend of cooked agave, vanilla, toasted oak, and butterscotch, with notes of ripe fruits and almonds. Finish: Long, warm, with a sweet and spicy balance. Overall: El Tesoro Añejo is a luxurious, smooth tequila, offering a harmonious mix of traditional agave and complex flavors from oak aging. Perfect for savoring

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.
