Aroma: It's sweet, tropical leaning into coconut aromas. Caramel it's present, vanilla and oak. I can smell more Bourbon than whiskey in it for sure. Flavor it's good for beginners which is where it belongs. Caramel and Oak are the main actors in this play. And agave flavor has a role but only for a few seconds. Good tequila to get people in or back into Tequila; so it has a purpose in this world.

First off I’m a whiskey fan. Having said that this is an OK sipper. I use squeezed lime and rim salt, but still... not all agave is quite lost. Finishes a bit too caramel-ly sweet with a bit of chemical effect.

Like many others have noted , this can almost pass for a whisky . Not much agave . Pretty smooth. Good value for an anejo.

if someone gave me this blind I might think it was a whisky. the barrel aging process overwhelms the agave flavor for me. whiskey, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar for days.

Strong whiskey barrel taste -- not an issue if that's what you're looking for -- with a very smooth, creamy finish

Nice tequila for a more reasonable price at $36/bottle on sale. Not as good as Casamigo but pretty close second so far

So much whiskey, American rye to be exact. Peppery agave notes play into the bourbon barrels to give it fruity whiskey feel. All about whiskey with hints of agave leftover.

Nose: Caramel, vanilla, dark cherry candy, raw oak, a finely ground pepper note, and a hint of bandaid. Flavor: Heavy handed oak presence: whiskey oak, new oak, bourbon oak. Almost acrid pepper and barrel spices, with vanilla sweetness weaving its way through the flavors. Not much agave that I can find. But I’m not totally hating this either... Finish : Some bitterness, a dry sensation to the finish, and dominated by more oak and wood: I get a flavor reminiscent of sucking on a pencil.

An interesting style. “Double aged in whiskey barrels” for 18 months. You can certainly taste the whiskey notes. It covers up much of the tequila flavors, agave, etc. Not a bad sipper on ice but it doesn’t really allow the Añejo to come through. If you like bourbon and are shifting to aged tequilas, this would be a good on ramp.

This is tough as it smells completely like whiskey and tastes like it too, I don’t hate it but did they use agave?

Heavy whiskey scent and finish that pretty much obscure the agave. Fairly delicate, balanced fruity but again, whiskey-heavy body. A good sipper for the tequila beginner who enjoys whiskey.

very conflicted on this one. lots of artificial flavor and a burn that they attempt to mask. however, overall result isn't terrible. easy on the wallet. can give to beginners as an easy transition from whiskey. but, if you're a premium anejo drinker and can afford to be, avoid this
