This product is clearly leaning on the companies whisky making expertise, it’s a really good Añejo considering the base ingredient. Classic example of how the use of oak can mask blemishes in a Blanco.

Heavy wood nose with fruit, nuts and spices. Flavor slaps you with a bitter resin note. Fruit and agave are overpowered by the heavy oak and bourbon flavors. A little caramel is attempting to peak through.

This is a good one to show that you probably need to spend a little dough for an anejo. Nothing offensive about it, it's just not interesting as a sipper, and the finish wasn't smooth enough. Two-thirds of the bottle went to making some anejo margaritas that were fairly tasty.

Woody aroma, smooth taste and easy finish. Definitely a quality table tequila.

The nose shows lots of bad alcohol quality.(acetone) Beyond that there is a lot of dry oak. Not much agave. The agave flavor is flat but the taste brings lots of pepper.

A great introductory sipper. Priced around $25 a 5th size bottle is a great value. A little too much flavor for mixing but cheap enough you still can use as a mixer. Aroma of Agave, Smoke, Dark Chocolate, slight oily mouthfeel with a rush of vanilla, dark chocolate, cooked agave, and smokiness followed by slight oak, peppercorn and a light alcohol burn on the finish.

Really good tequila and well worth the about $20 a 5th price. Definitely a well aged anejo litte more tasty than a good reposado. Good as a sipper or mixer. A ++ quality. Don't get the snobby reviews.

Very bitter. Lots of roasted agave, a hint of lemon citrus, and wood and bitter chocolate.

Tasted at Cactus Jacks Mexican Restaurant in a white wine glass. Nice dark color Anejo with thick medium legs. Similar nose to Cabo Anejo, citrusy orange with a hint of vanilla.. For a lower priced tequila, nice color and aroma with this one. Initial taste feels thinner than it looks. Quite smoky. The aroma was so similar to Cabo Wabo, but upon first taste, they are very different; Hornitos not being nearly as good. Not bad, but almost too smoky. Overall, not bad for the price, but would prefer less smokiness and more complexity. C-

Eh, it's pretty good for a mass-market añejo, but I'm tasting the mass market more than I'm tasting the agave or the barrel. I'd rather pay up.

Review #145 - Sauza Hornitos Tequila Anejo

This is a decent follow up to the Hornitos Reposado. By far Sauza Hornitos' best effort.
