Aroma : Cooked agave, light oak, herbal and vegetal notes. Also some amount of caramel as well. Taste : Light agave and stronger oak. There is also some vanilla and grass here. Somewhat peppery, there is also a unique "honeyed" taste to this. Medium bodied with light oils. Finish : Medium in length and more bitter and spicy than the initial notes.

If you can smell this tequila and not want to jump inside the bottle there is no hope for you. I’d love to know what the difference in oak treatment is between this and the repo, this kept its agave identity and inherited all the best qualities of the barrel. Just the right amount of sweet, a really great effort!

Aroma: Cloves, ripe fruit, agave, and toasted nuts. Subtle herbal, vegetal and lactic overtones. Palate: Pepper, fruitiness, fennel and a vanilla/floral combo. Touch of bitterness on the finish. Great value tequila.

Lots of oak on the nose along with some cooked agave, vanilla, cinnamon, and other baking spices. There’s more oaky bitterness on the palate than I prefer, but it’s not overwhelming. Pepper, nutmeg, and sweet caramel carry the medium-length finish. This añejo isn’t unbalanced by any means, but I think the barrel is doing the majority of the work here. I wish the agave had a stronger presence. However, a bottle of this only cost me $30 - for around that price, it’s one of the better budget sippers you can buy. Whiskey lovers will enjoy this one.

Nose has agave, oak, carmel, and vanilla present. Heavy oak on the palate, very nice if you like bourbons. Nice mouth feel, very nice medium finish. Excellent value for this Tequila.

The nose is light oak, celery salt, allspice, nutmeg, caramel, black pepper, agave, and just a hint of ethanol. On the palate you have a more pronounced oak flavour, with some vanilla, caramel and baking spice. The finish is long and dry, showcasing the caramel theme that is present throughout this anejo. For $60 Cnd, you'd have a hard time finding a better anejo for the price.

Very nice Anejo. Lots of caramel on the nose and flavor while still retaining the agave. Great price for 1L. Definitely glad I picked one up

The barrel spice and slight agave come through, followed by what I can only describe as blue freezie. Not very sweet, has a very "grounded" taste to it - earth and vegetal. This is a tasty, though not super complex Anejo, with very minimal burn.

I absolutely love this Anejo from Arette... Strong bourbon barrel presence, but it blends so nicely and isn’t too overpowering. Nice agave/bourbon brown sugar sweetness on the nose. This goes down too easy.

More of a heavy char finish, reminiscent of a bourbon. On sale at $24 per bottle, this is a high value

Nice affordable anejo. Flavors are light and subtle for an anejo, but that's the beauty of it. Extremely smooth finish.

5 Essential Tequilas for a Well-Stocked Bar

Some people, when talking about essential bottles for a well-stocked bar, leave out tequila (unlike, say, bourbon or scotch). Some people think that the only thing tequila is good for is making margaritas. Some people are wrong.
