Sweet aroma at first. Much of butterscotch and ripe red fruits I spot at nose. Woody taste come all around. Maple and apple are also present. Feels like additives. Not a pleasant aftertaste. No agave taste at all. Would not have it again.

So much mint and earth on here, reminds me that this process all starts with a plant! I’m a fan of this juice, it’s consistent and can be found in most places around the world.

Not sure what happened to this because it was once a solid Tequila. Now all i can smell is a varnish-like defect and fake wood.

Smells musty, but taste is fresh and complex. Warms the mouth.

Intro: Have been trying a number of different añejos recently, and found this bottle at a good price. I like the history behind the Herradura brand, and hope to visit the distillery this summer. Aroma: A sweet vanilla cream smell hits right away, with notes of butterscotch. I cannot tell if this is achieved through additives, but if not, it’s quite an amazing aroma to achieve. Taste: Slightly sweet with vanilla and butterscotch overtones. Has a stronger alcohol taste than other añejos I’ve tried. Finish: It goes down well, with a strong alcohol bite that I personally enjoy. The stronger alcohol bite mixes nicely with the vanilla and butterscotch. I can see how many would not enjoy the finish, however. Overall: A very decent añejo tequila that straddles the line between being a sipper or a mixer. I like that Brown-Forman, despite their reputation as an alcohol conglomerate, has in recent years increased the quality of Herradura, despite initially screwing it up so badly. It’s a brand with history, and it deserves to continue to be well-made.

Nice smell but not a good finish. Very vanilla/ Caramel but finish is not there.

Loved it at first. Then, drank after Don Julio Reposado, and have to say it's day and night. Although quite complex aroma (Strong Agave, Vanilla, Wood, Chocklate, Whiskey, Syrop, even hints of Lemon and Ceidar!), and flavour is also not bad (Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, Coffee, Pepper, Agave), very long finish, quite rich! (Cinnamon, Anis and Carmel and pepper) But, it burns too much for a quality Tequila and the finish makes you wanna drink water - too dry in throat, Whiskey - like. It's not bad, but also far from divine.

Pepper, oak, and vanilla at the start followed by a weird lingering minty, honeyed, and vanilla-extract finish. Too sweet for me. Tastes artificially flavored.

It has a peppery finish that numbs the tongue that makes me wonder if it’s all natural. I would probably not buy again unless under $30. It’s priced way out of its class.

Medium amber color in the glass. Aroma of cooked agave, vanilla and oak. Flavor of agave, pepper and caramel. Pleasant long finish.

I tried this tequila when I got stuck in Turkey and there weren’t too many choices. It was amazingly cheap. When I opened the bottle and first sip didn’t do anything for me but a few days later I tried again and wow. Well balanced, slight whiskey taste, great price, no hangovers. I think I shopped and bought every bottle of anejo that was available in Turkey. This will be one of my regulars from now on.

Has a little harsh taste but not to bad. I’d spend a few more dollars and get something that I really enjoy. Sales person pushed this bottle while shopping and I should of known better. Stick with whatever it is you like.

I suppose it fits the price catagory fairly well as it does not taste like a cheap TQ but definitely not higher end either. Would be a good gateway TQ to help comparisons. Was drinkable with some good aroma and initial flavor but finish is flat and reminiscent of college shots. More of a mixer not a sipper.

Review #223 - Herradura Tequila Anejo

Herradura is a strange brand for me. It's been inconsistent in all of its ages. This review is on a new bottling of the anejo, which has, for me, consistently been the best of the bunch.
