Another great outing for this 50th anniversary Tequileno. I expected a little more from this. Still solid with enough agave coming through along with slight vanilla, mango, spices, cinnamon, etc. but I think the slightly older tall bottle reposado reserva has an edge over this one.

Sweet vanilla nose, smooth and light aged agave. A little spice on the finish. Sampled this in Tequila at Hotel next to the distillery, so everything always taste better in Jalisco

Great nose, soft oak and vanilla are extremely inviting! Really balanced and approachable, this certainly presents as an Añejo but I find that the agave comes back with a vengeance on the back end. I have a soft spot for elegant tequilas like this, with diminishing stock this is something to squirrel away in your collection.

Nose: Butterscotch, vanilla, dark fresh fruit, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and an herbal or mineral note poking through. Earthiness. Floral nuances. Flavor: Baking spices, anise, honey, agave, vanilla and light pepper. Viscous. Bold yet round sensation. Round finish medium long, with enough pepper heat to balance the sweet and floral notes.

Bought this for $19 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars, which may be the deal of the century. It has a creamy smooth vanilla aroma, and a well-balanced full and slightly sweet finish. This is a surprisingly solid añejo.

It's not bad, but too much wood and too little agave for my taste.

This tasted off to me. An usual flavor and finish. Maybe gasoline?

Aroma is ok jut not much agave. The taste is complex and has a lot going on and is good. The finish is ok.

Something is not right about this anejo. A very strange off fuel nose with barely there agave. Harsh entry. After taste leaves a lot to be desired and little to admire. Light tongue coating body. Worth the $19 paid. Just not for me. - 1tequila2
