NOM 1173 Some flavors of caramel and oak, but otherwise overpowered by artificial sweetness. Taste and texture seems very thin and watery, and the finish is short and sweet. That is: short, and sweet like cotton candy. Stay away.

Is there anything Kirkland doesn’t do well? Loads of agave from start to finish, that’s not the norm for Anejo’s and a nice surprise. Heavy oak on the back end that reminds me of a port or dessert wine, not something to begin the evening with.

I was hopeful to add to the bargain brands that I like....but this has a cloying sweet artificial flavor that I can't get past. Undrinkable as tequila, but fine for vanilla-butterscotch alcohol drink. NOM 1173

tastes like oak barrel so little similar to whiskey. little boring but overall satisfying I like the bottle design.

NOM 1173. Holy additive punch bowl. So much fake flavor. Originally it tasted good but after trying much better additive free tequila such as ArteNom 1146, it's a drain pour.

Very smooth with a distinct chocolate finish. By far my favorite, regardless of the price!... BtW: At $21 a liter it's hard for Costco to keep in stock -- Sshh, don't tell anybody!

NOM 1173 Extra points for being $20 for a liter boosts the score. A nice Anejo for sipping with a cigar. cooked agave, Both American and Fench oak barrel spices with a hint of sweetness from the french. not bad for $20 for a liter! very sippable.

NOM 1173 this tequila is a bargain as everyone knows. In the glass the aromas aren't displeasing. It goes down a little hot and the flavors aren't too complex. I'd say it is a satisfying sipper that is a little sweet with a short finish.

Pretty darn good tequila for the price. We always pick up a couple bottles at Costco.

In a blind taste test of tequilas (neat) I typically use for margaritas: Milagro silver vs Olmeca Altos reposado vs Kirkland anejo, this Kirkland spirit won by a significant margin. I’m shocked by this finding. Strictly a margarita drinker. This unseated my prior favorite, Olmeca. I’ll happily and proudly continue to purchase this bargain spirit - $19.99 for 1 liter 12/10/18 in N.J. USA

You get a nose full of oak, caramel, vanilla,a little floral, and some spice. The taste is smooth with little to no alcohol burn. I could not taste much of the agave because with añejos, my senses are overwhelmed by the oak. The finish is warm and smooth with a little pepper and oak remaining on tongue. You would be hard pressed to find a better añejo for this price

Strong up-front notes of cooked agave and celery. Black pepper, burnt sugar and bourbon finish. Strong butter on the nose. Nice juice for $20.

Kirkland Signature Anejo Tequila from Costco - you get what you pay for

Even more exciting is the price: a 1 liter bottle will only set you back $23.99. What a steal!
