Very pleasant relative to other things I tasted tonight. Might be good in an Anejo vertical. But then I compared to one of my old work horses and there is no contest. Sorry Semental but you are not the horse with. 99th percentile left ventricle by my ultrasound. ( If you are interested in the reference, read the rip roaring interesting book Everybody Lies.)

I would agree with others here that this is a very whiskey forward añejo. I can appreciate it on those terms.

I actually have two ratings for this anejo: the one scored judging it as a tequila, and a much higher score judging it as if it were a whiskey. My biggest issue is that I find almost no agave on the nose or palate, a big flaw for a tequila. However, if you're a whiskey fan you may well love this one! Lots of barrel in the form of caramel, vanilla and nuttiness. Cinnamon and white pepper provide a spicy kick on the finish. From that perspective I would score it a 90 point dram. Recommended for bourbon and rye lovers, and also for those who drink non-peaty whiskies.

Very smooth tequila, a little sweet with a but of spice in the finish.

Loads of barrel influence but very enjoyable - must be the hybrid barrels used (French oak caps & American oak staves) - the agave seems drowned out a tad though it's there. Would definitely be for those in the American whiskey/bourbon crowd.

Subtle vegetal aroma with clear agave smell. Flavor = pure whiskey...any trace of agave lost the barrel. A tequila only a whiskey lover could like.

Tequila Semental boasts mellow, savory lowland agave flavor

Tequila Semental is yet another newcomer in the crowded premium tequila market. The owners must be hoping sales will live up to its name – a semental is a carefully selected fighting bull used for breeding – and stand apart from the numerous others on the
