Make no mistake my tasting notes are based on a 1999 pre-diffuser anejo Beautiful viscosity and full on agave forward. Followed by candied walnuts, cherries, almond, mocha, butterscotch, light vanilla. Had a chance to taste it along with a newer Herradura Seleccion Suprema XA, and this old añejo blew it away...

This Sazarac Import was bottled almost 17 years ago to the day 28 07 04. This is very aromatic with heavy char notes hanging in the air after pouring to a Glencairn. Slight viscosity in the mouth as well as some agave sweetness along with an bitter element from the barrel. If it still tasted like this it would be a big seller.

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.

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.

$9 pour. I definitely prefer the repo over this, the green apple/agave notes are getting drowned out by all the oak/baking spice flavors from the barrel. There’s not much about this that sets it apart from other middle-of-the-road añejos.

Nose: Brine, agave and cedar. Alcohol creeps up quickly on the nose. Butter, carmel; hint of a sweet, nuttiness Dry, chalky mouth feel. Bitter finish. Not smooth enough; barrel notes are not heavy for an Anejo.

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.
