Very easy to sip. Barrel influence is light on this one as the agave definitely shines. I like it. Some heat on the finish but it's welcomed and enjoyable
Oak in the nose …. Pepper and fruity some minerality… tasty Anejo …. Some Barrel spices and flavors
Tax stamp 2004: Light golden color. Loads of agave up front. Barrel notes peaking through, spice baked apples and vanilla. Citrus up front, round mouthfeel. Cooked agave that moves to the pepper kick, great complexity and finish for 38%.
The bottle has improved immensely! The liquid inside is equally beautiful. Cooked agave, a touch of vanilla, a little bit of earth, some pepper and cinnamon. This was unbelievable for the price.
An extremely old bottling. Nose: Vibrant nose of over ripe pitted fruit, peachy/apricot and berries. Bold agave, creamy vanilla and some earth notes. Flavors: A lot to like. Cinnamon, cloves, anise, black pepper, vanilla and almond. Oak and agave in a perfect marriage. Nice bright natural agave sweetness to ice the cake. A rewarding experience. The rating picked up a couple of points on price point - $340 pesos from Nuestro Dulces in Tlaquepaque. There is something about this tequila that really reminds me of El Caballito Cerrero...
I love how the Viva Mexico añejo, is a no bull-shit tequila. No glycerin. No added "essence of oak". No added sweetener jive. Nada! Just enough oak to round off the edges, impart some flavor, and still let you know that it is a tequila! This is the kind on añejo that was on the market 10+ years ago, but times have changed. Luckily Viva Mexico is still around! And at $18, it's a no-brainer! Musty, spicy, and earthy with citrus overtones on the nose this añejo has sweet butter, light caramel, pear, black pepper, jalapeño, anise, with a long finish that starts off with that classic citrus peel note that NOM 1414 is known for and leads to a touch of cooked agave.
This has a bitterness that I do not like.
A well made, deliciously accessible Añejo without overbearing barrel notes. Instead sweet agave, cooking spices, caramel and mineral notes provide for a lasting finish. Well recommended.
Nose: Agave Vanilla Oak Taste: Agave Caramel Vanilla Oak Spice Dried fruit Great Anejo for a good price.
Viva Mexico Anjeo ($50 USD @ Ferment and Still) is an extremely solid anjeo at an amazing price. Overall, this is a rewarding experience and I think this is better than their blanco and reposado. Nose: Light. Cooked agave, oak, cinnamon dried apricot, pepper. I get a little bit of vanilla and dried red fruits. A nice earthiness to the nose. This is enjoyable already. Taste: Oh, yeah. Bright with a solid fullness and heat on the entry. Agave, oak, cinnamon, citrus and pepper. A little almond and nutmeg. Minerality comes though. Very well balanced. Finish:Agave and cinnamon linger for medium to long finish.
Rich, full bodied, subtle barrel notes. Full agave flavor. Highly recommend.
$44 Bought in San Antonio 9/22 Makes a nice mixed drink.
This is probably the best bargain añejo out there right now. The nose is light agave. Light barrel notes as well. Hint of Vanilla. Long and clean finish with a little burn. Agave really shines. My go-to righty now with a nice cigar. Hard to beat.
I just became a huge fan of this brand. The aeroma is a nice agave, slight vanilla and jalapeño peppers. Taste of agave, vanilla, pitted fruit. Little oak, some pepper. Very good wow
The Anejo has barrel notes (cinnamon with hints of bitter chocolate) and vanilla. Long somewhat hot finish but in a good way.
Aroma - sweet agave Flavor - cinnamon, caramel, cooked agave, vanilla Finish - mild jalapeño, roast agave Very enjoyable and complex. An absolute bargain for cert additive free
Wonderfully unique taste. Cinnamon stood out as something different. Very nice local Tequila
You’ll be hard pressed to find an Añejo this good for under $50. Phenomenal.
Extraordinary Taste And Aroma... One of the Most Fine, Rich and Luxury Taste Tequila 100%
Walnuts, almonds, butter
Very inviting nose that leaves you wanting to nose it more and more, slightly alcohol detection with nice hints of Agave and wood notes For an Añejo, this tequila drinks more like a Reposado, I get very nice wood notes that are overcome by Agave and I get some cinnamon, some fresh fig / raisins, all in all a very nice Añejo by the Vivanco family ! The finish lacks a little more depth, although the nose and taste are very good , the finish lacks a little more...it kind of disappears too fast, but leaves the tastebuds lingering and savoring fainting Agave notes
This tequila had a wood barrel aroma and rough finish you would expect from an aged tequila.

Older bottle from Jim Lannon's collection. Nice spice on the tongue with hints of oak and some solid agave on the back end.
