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.

The cooked agave is present on the nose and palate, along with a hint of oak, caramel and honey. Really nice and good value!

True and real flavour. No sugar coating here. Hope it stays this way.

Vanilla, caramel, peppery aroma. Fairly smooth taste. Doesn’t linger too long on the tongue but also doesn’t leave a memorable impression. Overall , this is a good Anejo.

This tequila had some artificial, perfume like flavors that made it undrinkable to me. Agave was almost non detectable.

Received this bottle as a gift so I'm not sure of the price point. A fairly clean anejo with no overabundance of any single aromas or flavors. Overall pretty bland.

Smooth and soft with some spice, oak and mint (?) I prefer blancos but this is very good

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.
