Blind review: 1/31/2024 Aroma: sage brush type of dry vegetation and earthiness hit immediately followed by a slight smokiness and raw agave aroma. As it opens up I get some cooked agave, salt brine, and black olive Flavor: very subtle flavor with some agave sweetness. Somewhat floral with a nice creamy orange blossom honey sweetness. Finish is short with a nice medium body texture. There’s almost no alcohol burn and a nice sweetness is left on the palate.

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

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

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

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.

Viva Mexico Anejo is excellent. Bright and beautiful nose. It is exactly what I like for an Anejo. On the nose, caramel, vanilla, honey and floral agave. Beautiful barrel notes. The barrel does not overpower the agave. Taste matches nose. No ethanol heat. Easy sipper. Medium finish. Good legs in the glass. Viva for the price can't be beat. Paid $60. Better than Anejos twice the price an even better than many extra anejo 3x the price. Buying again. Highly recommend.

Sweet nose, caramel, wood, fruity. Thick viscosity, coats the palate entirely. Tastes of honey, caramel, agave and cinnamon. Long finish, sweet but good!

A unique agave aroma with oak and cinnamon. On the palate this anejo feels creamy but ends strong. I easily taste the mineral tones from the water used. I really enjoy this anejo.

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.

Viva Mexico Anjeo ($79 USD) is an extremely solid anjeo at a reasonable 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.

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.
