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.

Such a unique tequila! Very light tone in the glass, beautiful aroma of cooked agave and herbal with subtle barrel aging coming through. Flavour is peppery upfront with the natural sweetness of the aging process in the background. Decent heat and a lingering finish. Light notes of sweetness all the way through to remind me I'm drinking an anejo. Great value in Canada.

A very solid añejo. To me, this has a traditional taste and feel to it that I enjoyed very much. Lots of agave flavor for an añejo. I’ll come back to this one again soon

Aroma: lemon zest, woody and fresh with a hint of vegetal agave. Palate: sweet agave, barrel notes of vanilla and wood, smooth and flavorful. Overall, a beautiful añejo, of course.

This rating is for the older styled bottle spotted on the bottom shelf - ! - in a tiny Tex Mex place, 2/3 empty among the typical assortment seen today. Bar keep said she’d never poured one in 2 years there... she poured me two. The nose reminded me of Suerte somewhat, lime, but with hints of the vanilla to come. An unexpected burst of cherry opened up in the flavor profile, with vanilla, burnt butter and some pepper. Excellent agave presence for the long aging. Finish as expected was on the short side, but spice lingers. A+ Might try the modern day version to see if it holds up.

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.
