Don Pilar Anejo This Anejo has a very pleasant nose of sweet cooked agave and buttery caramel. I get some light honey notes, fresh fruit and some light spices from the Virgin American White Oak barrels. I taste creamy cooked agave and peppery barrel spices then some warm honey. There is a nice mouthfeel and some pepper and alcohol tingle on the finish like a nice warm hug. This is a nice Anejo with some depth. I get more on the nose than the pallet but it’s a good sipping Anejo. I’m positive it’s additive free. Go get some! Salud!

Aroma : Wood/oak, caramel, vanilla butter, cooking spices, citrus, agave. It's like sniffing tequila and whiskey at the same time. Taste : Cooked agave, citrus, caramel. Some of bourbon notes here like the caramel, and also oak, vanilla and almond. Finish : Fairly long with vanilla, oak, spice and agave. Medium bodied and many flavors that bear resemblance to bourbon. If you also happen to be a bourbon fan like me, this tequila is a must.

Deep amber color. Loads and caramel and butterscotch on the nose, some vanilla and oak as well and agave too. Slight hit of pepper followed by and hints of fruit and agave... finishes with oak and leather tannins. Short to medium finish, with some lingering heat.

out of the full bottle I let it breathe for a few. I noticed the aroma got more bold with a few mins. light oak on the nose, followed by molasses. sweet, but easy. wonderful lazy summer night taste. oak and honey are strong, but not over powering with a sweet lingering finish. Azul Latin Kitchen South Lake Tahoe great menu of tequila $11 bottle full requested champagne glass queso fortido and carnitas

Blind rated. This one has a beautiful aroma, with loads of caramel, oak and dried fruits. Some sweetness and that little mint, which I perceived throughout the samples. On the palate is balanced with a medium mouthfeel. Again Caramel and oak, although less than expected from the aroma and the same goes for a mild sweetness, which for me is a plus in an añejo (I tend to dislike over-oaked and very sweet añejos). This is a well done añejo. It's definitely my favorite one in the line, although I would have liked a bit more of complexity and oiliness. I could drink this one all night.

Strong note of caramel and a slight hint of oak on the nose. The flavor is a lot less sweet than I was expecting. I definitely get a lot of oak but it's not too overpowering. The finish is nice and lingers for quite some time. I wish the flavor was a little more complex (maybe hitting that caramel note more) but overall a good Anejo.

This really works for my palate. I get apples and dried cherries in the nose. More of the same on the body along with vanilla and caramel. I could a longer finish with some spice at the end. Great value at about $35.

If I wanted bourbon I would have bought bourbon. Super disappointed in this.

Very whiskey-like. But also a pleasant drink. Light and balanced overall, despite the heavier barrel flavors. Good one to use for an agave old fashioned or any cocktail where you’re subbing tequila for bourbon or whiskey.

Starts out with a lot of cinnamon, agave, light vanilla and caramel notes with a subtle hint of salinity leading to a smooth long finish.

If you’re a whiskey fan (especially bourbon) then I highly recommend giving this one a chance. This is one I keep coming back to since it’s pretty accessible for me and at $30 a bottle I’d say it’s a nice deal. I get notes of vanilla, oak, caramel, ground black pepper with a slight fruity agave sweetness both in the nose and palate and no burn. Nose isn’t as strong as the palate but this is one to definitely enjoy on these colder nights.

Generous aromas of vanilla, orange peel and toffee. Rich full mid palate with a warm and round texture. Slightly subtle anise or Tarragon highlights. The finish is clean with a long and graceful ending. No hot burn.
