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.

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.

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.

$14 pour. This is a really solid añejo that lets the agave shine while also imparting sweeter notes from the barrel. For me, the blanco is still the star of this lineup but I have no problems sipping this!

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.
